BUND, Shanghai’s harbor boulevard, is always the first place I show my guests from other countries. It mixes the beauty of the past in the form of the historic buildings with the future – the skyscrapers of Pudong. The most beautiful time is in the evening, especially when you go on a boat trip and enjoy the flashing neon lights that are emitted from all the towers.
XiantianDi, also called “new heaven on earth” is an area with an upscale shopping and dining complex. It is very relaxing to sit out here on a warm and sunny day in a café, chatting with friends or watching the people.
And finally, you should visit the Yu Garden. This is one of the few old sights of Shanghai and once belonged to an official of the Ming Dynasty. There are many small shops around the garden where you can buy souvenirs.
