Visiting Shanghai is the highlight of a visit to China, a travel destination where everyone wishes to travel. A renowned international city with a fast-paced modernization accompanied by its multicultural growth. So what are the top tourist attractions of Shanghai? Read o to know more.

Experience the world’s fastest train.

The moment you land in Pudong Airport, you’ll instantly feel the vibe of modern Shanghai by taking the Maglev train from the airport to the city center. This train runs at twice the speed of a theme park roller coaster to cover 30km in just eight minutes. But don’t worry; you’ll hardly notice that you’re running at 431kph.

Take your Instagram-worthy photo at The Bund.

The Bund is symbolic for Shanghai because it has been the city’s center of trade for centuries. Today, it is what Wall Street is to New York where you’ll see some of the most powerful trading houses and banks towering through Pudong’s skyline that provides the perfect backdrop for your Instagram-worthy photos.

Find your zen at the Yuyuan Garden.

After taking photos and strolling at The Bund, you can go straight to Yuyuan Garden to find your zen. This beautiful green space will make you forget that you’re in the middle of a modern city with its beautiful architectural structures reminiscent of the Ming Dynasty’s glory days. Don’t forget to see the exquisite Jade Rock believed to be part of Song Emperor Huizong’s private collection while you’re in Yuyuan.

Explore the edgy side of Shanghai at M50.

The city may be known for its glamorous lifestyle, but it also has an edgy side that you can experience at the M50 industrial art complex. Here, you can check out galleries showcasing the works of contemporary Chinese artists displayed in old cotton mills and factories.

Experience a different kind of shopping in Tianzifang.

If Shanghai’s oversized malls prove too expensive for your taste, head to Tianzifang to get a more authentic shopping experience. This entertainment complex located within traditional alleyways or longtangs is home to a network of cafes, boutiques, souvenir shops and design studios where you can get good stuff to take home or just enjoy the community vibe.

Shanghai’s World Financial Center is the city’s highest building and the fifth tallest in the world. It also has the highest observatory in the world, “The Sky Walk,” where you get sweeping views of the city’s skyline at 474 meters high.

Take a stroll back in time at the Shanghai Natural History Museum.

If you loved the movie “Night at the Museum,” you’ll surely love the Shanghai Natural History Museum. Although not as vast as the Smithsonian, this museum boasts of a huge display of dinosaurs and taxidermied animals, reptiles and birds spread over five levels.
