Today, you will visit Jade Buddha Temple, the site of the largest jade Buddha in the world and numerous religious artifacts, ancient statues and Buddhist scriptures. This peaceful kingdom of Buddhism hidden among modern blocks and dominating mansions is a great place for a nice break in this very busy city.

Then, visit Old French Concession Shanghai. Shanghai is popular for many places and reasons, but the French Concession is somewhere on top of that list. Hugely popular and sought after as the preferred residential address among expats, the Former French Concession has a lot of history and beauty to its credit.

You will have a lunch at local restaurant with authentic Shanghai food.

In the afternoon, you will ascend the 100-storey of Shanghai World Financial Center, where you could have a bird's eye view of the scenery along the Huangpu River, look straight forward to the sharp roof of the Oriental Pearl TV Tower and experience the roof of Jinmao Tower under your feet.
