Know More about this tour


Visit the Jade Buddha Temple to see the intricately carved jade Buddhas and ancient paintings. The temple was built in the architectural style of the Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD), characterized by symmetrical halls and courtyards, upturned eaves, and clay-tiled roofs. Enjoy lunch at a local Chinese restaurant.
Begin your tour at Yuyuan Garden, built during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 AD). Enjoy a respite from bustling city life as you stroll through the garden, admiring the pavilions, ponds and dragon-lined walls. Yuyuan Garden translates to the ‘Garden of Contentment’ in English, and you will experience tranquility as you explore this 400-year-old classical Chinese garden. Inside of Yuyuan Garden, you will see Huxinting Teahouse, the oldest tea house in Shanghai.
Next, stop by the Chenghuangmiao Temple – the ‘Temple of the Town Deity.’ Back in ancient China, every city had its own temple to worship its local deity, who was believed to protect the townspeople. Today, the temple’s main courtyard is filled with local people worshiping the statues of a local military hero and the town god.
Finish your day shopping for mementos, vintage trinkets and gifts at Taobao City Market. Keep your eyes out for revolution-era porcelain statues, Chinese dishes, vases and old cameras. With 125 stalls to browse, the market offers a not-to-be-missed experience.

    It was my first trip to China and as I was there for work I didn't have much time to explore and I knew if I went by myself I wouldn't see the things I should see. My guide picked me up at the hotel, spoke perfect English and knew the history of all of the places we visited. It was a wonderful day and a very professional tour. I was interested in seeing a traditional tea service as well so the guide took me to one. He also negotiated for me in the market and we also had a very nice lunch at an excellent restaurant. I highly recommend this tour for those who are short on time and want to see as much as possible.

    This tour was a wonderful overview of Hong Kong. The views , VIP transpiration and knowledge of the friendly guide made our experience wonderful. We highly recommend the sampan addition for some unique views of Hong Kong. Plenty of time at Stanley Market for shopping too!
