How to get the most when you are in Shanghai
How to get the most when you are in Shanghai? Sightseeing, exploring are usual touristy things you will be doing, getting to know the place, culture, people and its history. We have build the recommendations around Viator on ‘top pick’, ‘day trips’ and ‘extended tours’.
A lot to choose from, we know you are interested in something different, fun and with local flavour… we bring them on!
Among those Top Pick, the trips to those old lanes and alleyways can be really fascinating. They are like “old town” in any major cities, around the initial residential area. People have emotional bonds with the old lanes and alleyways, they survived with time, especially in a city like Shanghai which had so much and with so much going on. The tour guides are awesome, you can discover the local charm and enjoy an unusual outing in the town. Check on our link Shanghai Old Lanes & Alleyways
We also recommend a unique tour of Shanghai’s Jewish Quarter, led by the local expert. It tells the story about the Jewish life into the previous Mid Century. Shanghai sheltered thousands Jewish refugees during the war time, people like Sasson (the initial owner of the Peace Hotel) has significance in shaping Shanghai’s landscape. The tour lasts 4 hours and includes a visit to Jewish Refugees Museum, Shanghai Jewish Quarter Tour will sure provide you exceptional insights about this city.
The tour on “Shanghai Circus World” is worth seeing too, you have the chance to learn about Chinese history and culture, get some understanding on martial art, it makes such a fun trip for family.
Of course, we will continue to recommend the tours / trips, share our excitement, and, have a feel on our selection. Oh, Top Pick

It takes over 11 hours directly from London to Shanghai, so it’s a long way staying in the air for nearly 6000 miles. By knowing slightly on who normally provide non –stops, who operate with stops, who is generous on the luggage allowance, who gives more on the leg room, who comes along with frills and thrills on food and entertainment. We can look for accordingly.
Comparison sites, such as Expedia can do a lot when it comes to flights and accommodations. We build our flights search links around its platform, so you can choose either fly from London or Birmingham or Manchester. Check on our link (London, Manchester, Birmingham): London; Manchester; Birmingham
Looking for the best deal, we are doing much the same. We also like to get there on one go (non-stops). In our view, East China does the best for the price, luggage allowance. Shown on Expedia, price at £470 at the time of this blog for a week return, directs London and Shanghai. Food is yammy (by our experience), though you may not get the chance to taste your favourite “tipple”. Pretty good when you can land at Shanghai or London (inbound) late afternoon for overnight recovery. We give Virgin thumb up (at this time of the blog) for its food and being comfy, bit more on the price £630 though, maybe for its entertainment, and it does land in Shanghai at AM.
