Attractions to see in Shanghai - Exploring Ancient and Modern Sights
25th January 2024

Shanghai has one foot in the future, with iconic skyscrapers housing thriving businesses, while simultaneously treasuring its past. With a collection of temples and historical sites that preserve its heritage the balance of these two worlds is what makes Shanghai a truly unique destination for business travellers to experience.

Shanghai’s population of more than 26 million is one of the biggest in the world, and the city is brimming with things to do and see. Focusing on five top districts, we've put together a comprehensive guide to Shanghai's modern and ancient attractions to showcase a mix of the old and new, along with some perfectly placed serviced apartments.

Pudong District

Pudong District is a microcosm of Shanghai as a whole, emblematic of its modern and traditional fusion. The district is home to many of Shanghai’s most well-known architectural wonders alongside glimpses into its cultural roots.

Shanghai Tower

Standing at 632 metres, the Shanghai Tower holds the title of China’s tallest building and is the third tallest in the world. Its observation deck offers unparalleled 360-degree views of the city, showcasing Shanghai's breathtaking skyline and the winding Huangpu River.

With its unmistakable spherical design featuring a glass-bottomed observation deck, the Oriental Pearl TV Tower offers a unique bird’s-eye view of the city below.

Xinchang Water Town

Xinchang is a small water village situated in the Pudong District of Shanghai. The town has stood for more than 800 years, with buildings dating back to the Ming Dynasty of A.D. 1368-1644. It’s a serene village full of canals, bridges, and historical buildings and, with regular metro and bus services, this makes for a perfect day out.

Huangpu District

Located in central Shanghai, the district is made up of three former districts: Nanshi, Old Huangpu and Luwan. The district again offers a vibrant blend of new and old, including ancient city walls, modern skyscrapers, and the iconic Bund waterfront.

The Bund

A symbol of Shanghai's economic prowess, The Bund is a waterfront promenade that stretches the western bank of the Huangpu River. Corporate travellers can enjoy an evening stroll taking in the European influenced architecture and stunning city views.

Shanghai World Financial Centre

This distinct skyscraper is a standout amongst one of the most iconic skylines in the world with its unmistakable bottle opener shape. The Sky Walk, located on the 100th floor, offers an exhilarating experience with breathtaking views.

Yu Garden

Dating back to the Ming Dynasty, Yu Gardens feature pavilions, rockeries and ponds adorned with traditional architectural elements, offering a serene retreat from the city's hustle and bustle.

City God Temple

Steeped in over 600 years of history, this Taoist temple is an important cultural symbol in Shanghai. Visitors can explore its intricate architecture, witness traditional ceremonies, and delve into local folklore and customs.

Shanghai serviced apartments in Huangpu District:

Jing'an District

The district is named after the Jing'an Temple which is housed within its border. The southern portion of the district is a key area for business in Shanghai in addition to multimedia valley, TusPark. With a mixture of traditional, residential, and commercial elements, Jing’an strikes the perfect balance of business and leisure for corporate travellers planning a stay in central Shanghai.

Jing'an Temple

Originally built more than 780 years ago, the temple has since been relocated and rebuilt several times. Despite this, its historical significance remains, as does its grandeur. Its golden rooftop and intricate carvings contrast with the skyscrapers that surround it and is a must see for those wanting to experience Shanghai culture whilst not straying far from its modern comforts.

Shanghai Natural History Museum

Showcasing over 10,000 exhibits, this museum blends modern technology with ancient artifacts, providing insights into China's natural history and evolution.

Jing'an Sculpture Park

Jing’an Sculpture Park is an urban sanctuary featuring ancient sculptures within a modern park setting, creating a harmonious environment for art enthusiasts and those seeking a peaceful escape.

Xuhui District

Built up as a financial centre, Xuhui is known to be one of the most affluent districts in Shanghai. With many corporate headquarters being situated here as well as large shopping centres, it makes for an ideal place to visit for business travellers. There’s also plenty to see and do here in your down time, with a vibrant artistic hub and iconic Shanghai Stadium.

Tianzifang

Nestled within the neighbourhood alleyways, this arts and crafts enclave offers boutiques, galleries, and cafés. It’s a lovely dose of China’s modern art world mixed in amongst the traditional shikumen buildings. Tianzifang is perfect for art lovers and those wanting a break from the hustle and bustle.

Shanghai Stadium

Commonly known as the 80,000 people stadium due to its staggering seat capacity, Shanghai Stadium is Shanghai’s premier stadium for hosting major sporting events. From football to athletics, visitors can catch the latest and greatest sporting events as well as enjoy the range of restaurants and shops all housed within the stadium grounds.

Longhua Temple

With a history spanning over a millennium, this Buddhist temple houses ancient pagodas and architectural wonders, attracting visitors seeking spiritual and historical enlightenment.

Shanghai serviced apartments in Xuhui District:

Putuo District

Sitting to the north of Xuhui, the Putuo District offers a blend of commercial shopping areas and serene historical sights. The district offers plenty of opportunities for those in need of a good old shopping spree, or those looking to soak in China’s ancient culture – or both!

 

Global Harbour

As one of the largest shopping centres in Shanghai, Global Harbour is a must for those seeking some much-needed retail therapy. Other activities on offer here include a VR theme park and plenty of restaurants. The mall is beautifully designed throughout: the European style architecture, glass ceiling and high-tech animated lighting make for an unforgettable visit.

Changfeng Park

The sprawling Changfeng Park has been developed over the years and has many activities to offer. The grounds include a lake, amusement park, a sea life aquarium, and gardens full of natural beauty, making for a great place for some downtime, whether you’re walking, biking, or boating on the lake.

Jade Buddha Temple

Housing two jade Buddha statues from Myanmar, one made from white jade and one from green, this historic temple encourages its visitors to experience tranquillity as practicing Buddhists and monks can be found amongst the ancient artifacts.
