1. The Bund
The Bund (waterfront area) in Shanghai is certainly worth a visit and is the place where you can see Shanghais’ iconic skyline (especially at night) The Bund is full of tourists and locals alike, many of which are fighting each other for space to the take that perfect picture/ selfie.
2. The Shanghai Museum
The Shanghai Museum was listed on the Lonely Planets must see places, so we went along. Shanghai was, after all, an unplanned stop over so we didn’t really have any set plans – the fact it had free entry was an added bonus. The museum turned out to be a wealth of information and had sections on Ethnic minorities arts and crafts, Ancient Chinese Seals, Ancient Chinese Currencies and among many others. A well spent afternoon and deserves a visit if you have time.
