With a nickname like the "Pearl of the Orient," it's not surprising Shanghai offers some of the most rewarding attractions and activities in the Far East.
Let the collections at Shanghai Museum and Shanghai Propaganda Poster Art Centre capture your imagination. Do your shopping at Former French Concession and Nanjing Lu (Nanjing Road). Venture out of the city with trips to Suzhou (Hanshan Temple, Guan Qian Shopping Street, & more). There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Shanghai Wild Animal Park, take in panoramic vistas at Shanghai World Financial Center, don't miss a visit to Bund International Architecture Exhibition, and get to know the fascinating history of The Bund (Wai Tan).

To find more things to do, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Shanghai travel planner.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport, Shanghai Pudong International Airport and Sunan Shuofang International Airport. In October, daytime highs in Shanghai are 28°C, while nighttime lows are 19°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
