Although it is tourist oriented, there's plenty of beautiful and historic sites to see, and the town is quite large, so there's always the opportunity to escape the crowds.
This site was quite a drive from Shanghai (about an hour) but well worth the visit - even on a rainy day, You can have a lovely little ride on a boat around the canals and see the sights from there.

Shanghai Circuit
#16 of 455 Sights & Landmarks in Shanghai
The pit lane grandstand, great views of pit activity and the garages from the upper level plus a panoramic view across most of the track. 2 grandstands either side of the hairpin.
The race was exciting with a surprising winner, Ricciardo,...I advise that you get Grandstand tickets if you want a better view of the race including the pit stops.
