Pearl of the Orient

With a nickname like the "Pearl of the Orient," it's not surprising Shanghai offers some of the most rewarding attractions and activities in the Far East.

Explore Shanghai's surroundings by going to Taicang Museum (in Taicang), Chang Guang Xi National Wetland Park (in Wuxi) and Chongming County (Zihai Luyuan Romantic Village, Chong Ming Dong Tan Niao Lei , &more). Spend the 22nd (Tue) exploring nature at Dayangshan National Forest Park. The adventure continues: admire the natural beauty at The Lingering Garden, stroll through Shanghai Sanjia Port Coastal Tourist Areas, take in the exciting artwork at Shanghai Propaganda Poster Art Centre, and see the interesting displays at Shanghai Jewish Refugees Museum.
