Meet your friendly private guide and driver at your central Shanghai hotel at 6pm, and travel to The Bund area to learn about Shanghai’s colonial history dating back to the 19th century.
Board a sightseeing boat and take a seat in the VIP Class area for a 60-minute cruise on the Huangpu River to experience what's known as yè Shanghai, or beautiful Shanghai nights. Your VIP Class seats give you the best views of both sides of the river, so you can admire the colonial-era architecture of The Bund and 20th-and 21st-century landmarks of Pudong, including the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, Jinmao Tower, Shanghai World Financial Center, Shanghai Tower, and more.
Following your cruise, continue your memorable night at the Din Tai Fung restaurant. Here, enjoy a delectable xiaolongbao soup dumpling dinner served with a soda, beer, or tea, with additional drinks available to purchase (own expense).
Afterward, take a stroll around the Xintiandi quarter in Shanghai’s French Concession. Home to many pubs, bars, cafes, and shops housed in 1920s and 1930s ‘shikumen’ style buildings, this trendy area is a great place to enjoy a drink and get a taste of the concession’s one-time European glamor and romance.
Your tour finishes with a transfer and drop-off back at your central hotel. Alternatively, you can choose to stay in Xintiandi longer on your own.
