SHANGHAI

Shanghai is a city of two faces. It is home to some of the world’s tallest skyscrapers, miles of luxury goods shops, and scores of trendy bars and restaurants. But look just beyond the main streets and you’ll find narrow alleyways packed with traditional lane houses, where laundry billows from bamboo poles, and local communities are alive and well.Shanghai has always been China’s most Westernized city. In its heyday, Shanghai had the best nightlife, the greatest architecture, and the strongest business in Asia. View more

Nearly a century later, after extreme tumult and political upheaval, it’s back on top.Shanghai’s charm lies not in a list of must-see sites, but in quiet, tree-lined streets, the Bund’s majestic colonial buildings, sweet boutiques, and a dizzying array of places to eat and drink, from literal hole-in-the-walls to celebrity chef restaurants.Today, Shanghai has nearly 24 million people, the skyscrapers keep getting taller, the metro keeps getting longer, and the historical buildings continue to evade the wrecking ball. For how much longer is anyone’s guess.

Excursions in SHANGHAI

Dumpling revolution

Discover the secrets to preparing delicious Chinese dumplings during this interactive, half-day cooking excursion with lunch.


Shanghai, Wet Market Visit with Chef, French Concession Area

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 30-minute drive to a local wet market. Upon arrival, take a guided, narrated tour with a chef. Learn about various different ingredients, how to price them and what to buy. Following your wet market visit, take a guided stroll through the French Concession area (weather-permitting) en route to the Chinese Cooking Workshop.


Chinese Cooking Workshop, Jiaozi Dumplings

Upon arrival at the Chinese Cooking Workshop, begin your interactive dumpling cooking class. Your dumpling expert teaches you to make 'jiaozi', a type of Chinese dumpling commonly eaten in China and other parts of East Asia. They are one of the major foods eaten during the Chinese New Year, and year-round in the northern provinces. Though considered part of Chinese cuisine, jiaozi are popular in other parts of Asia and in western countries. Jiaozi typically consist of a ground meat and/or vegetable filling wrapped in a thinly-rolled piece of dough, which is then sealed by pressing the edges together. Finished jiaozi can be boiled, steamed or pan-fried.


Dumpling Preparation and Lunch

Learn how to knead and roll the dough, and create fillings and sauces. In addition to the traditional way of preparing authentic Chinese dumplings, discover some revolutionary new cooking methods and fillings to put into the dumplings, and how to concoct natural dyes made from the juice from fresh vegetables and fruits to create colourful dough wraps. Following your cooking workshop, proceed for a lunch consisting of the dishes you have helped to prepare, along with other cold appetizers. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 0.6 miles (about one kilometre), with two-six high steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and at the sites visited. This tour is not recommended for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended. Guests must be at least six years old to participate on this tour. Space on this tour is very limited; we suggest you book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Glimpse of Shanghai

Discover some of the many prominent highlights of Shanghai during a picturesque, half-day sightseeing excursion through this bustling metropolis.


Shanghai City and the Bund

Depart the pier for a sightseeing drive through Shanghai City. En route, a stop is made for a guided stroll through the Bund, Shanghai's most famous street. To the Europeans, the Bund was Shanghai's Wall Street, a place where fortunes were made and lost. Along this waterfront embankment stand some of the city's most prominent landmarks.


French Concession Area, Art Deco Buildings and Huaihai Road

Next, re-board your coach and proceed through the former French Concession Area. In the 1920s and 1930s, the French Concession was known for its lawlessness and decadence. As the foreign diplomatic quarter, it features top hotels, great shopping, bars and restaurants in Art Deco buildings. Huaihai Road, the former Avenue Joffre, is one of Shanghai's favourite shopping streets. After a photo stop here at Xintiandi, re-board your coach and continue on to the Jade Buddha Temple.


Jade Buddha Temple

Founded in 1881, the famous Jade Buddha Temple is highlighted by rare statues of Buddha, each carved from a single piece of white Burmese jade. Depending on the schedule of resident monks, you may be able to peek inside one of the temples to witness a prayer session. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 45-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 0.6 miles (about one kilometre), with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and 30 steps at the Bund. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing, flat, non-slip walking shoes and sun protection are recommended. Photography is not permitted inside the Jade Buddha Temple.

Hidden Treasure of Shanghai by Convertible Jeep

Explore the beautiful, bustling city of Shanghai and its surrounds during this panoramic, half-day sightseeing excursion via open-air, vintage Jeep.


Shanghai, Open-Air Jeep Tour

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 30-minute drive to the meeting point, then board a convertible, vintage Jeep with your driver/guide for a picturesque sightseeing tour of Shanghai. The charm of Shanghai lies in the contrast of a very rich Art Deco heritage, and its quaint Old Town against the high-rise buildings of the city's financial centre. Also known as the 'Pearl of the Orient' or 'Paris of the East', Shanghai has always intrigued with its architectural and cultural diversity, and bustling energy at every corner.


Old Town, French Concession, Boardwalk on the Bund-Side, Pudong Skyline

Shanghai is the ideal blend of past and present. During your guided tour via vintage, open-air Jeep, ride through some of the most well-preserved neighbourhoods and watch it all unfold before your eyes. Explore the winding alleys of the Old Town, where locals still resist the wave of modernity surrounding them, stop by the mythic French Concession with its quaint, yet charming, atmosphere, or head to the boardwalk on the Bund side for a splendid view of the Pudong skyline. At the conclusion of your tour, return to the meeting point, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of driving over bumpy, off-road surfaces and a moderate amount of walking for approximately 0.6 miles (about one kilometre), with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the Jeep. This tour is not suitable for pregnant guests, guests with neck and/or back problems, guests with heart and/or respiratory conditions, guests prone to motion sickness, guests with limited mobility, and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended. Each Jeep can accommodate up to four guests (one in the front, and three in the back seat). This tour is sold by the number of Jeeps. The tour sequence may vary. Space on this tour is extremely limited; we suggest you book well in advance to avoid disappointment.

Highlights of Shanghai

The fabled city of Shanghai is China's major port and the largest city in all of Asia. This comprehensive, full-day excursion takes you to Shanghai's most popular and intriguing sites.


The Bund

Depart the pier and travel by coach to the Bund, one of the symbols of Shanghai. The Bund shows off Shanghai's outstanding foreign buildings, most of which were erected before 1937. To the Europeans, the Bund was Shanghai's answer to Wall Street. In the 1930s, the string of buildings hosted the city's financial and commercial centres, and the world's greatest banks and trading empires established a base here.


New Economic Zone

Continue the drive to the New Economic Zone in the Pudong New Area. Prior to 1990, the Pudong New Area was farmland and rice paddies. Today, it is an urban experiment that is expected to become Asia's financial, economic and commercial centre. Stop for photos near the oddly futuristic Oriental Pearl TV and Radio Tower. The sixth-tallest structure in the world, this peculiar tower has become a symbol of the city and fully captures the boldness and glitz that are today's Shanghai. Next, proceed to the tallest building of China, the Shanghai World Financial Centre (SWFC), which was completed in 2008. Marvel at this 1,600-foot (492-meter)-high new landmark of Shanghai and take a picture.


Jin Mao Building

Visit to nearby Jin Mao Building, one of the landmarks of Shanghai and a soaring monument to the city's economic boom. A silvery pagoda, a rising bamboo shoot, and an upright pen are images evoked by the 88-storey-high Jin Mao Building in Pudong. Enjoy the panoramic view from the Observation Lounge on the 88th floor.


Jin Jiang Hotel

Midway through your busy sightseeing program, a Chinese-cuisine lunch is served at the Jin Jiang Hotel. A witness to history, the Jin Jiang Hotel has received more than 400 heads of state and government from countries all over the world since its opening. The hotel was once the place where Chairman Mao Zedong and his colleagues held meetings and it was also the site of the signing of the 1972 Sino-America joint communiqué by Chairman Mao and U.S. President Nixon.


Shanghai Old Town & Yu Yuan Gardens

Continuing on, discover Shanghai's Old Town and wander among its maze of narrow alleys and cobblestone lanes. As locals bustle about their daily activities, experience one of China's most famous dumpling cookeries and admire the area's remarkable architecture. From here, proceed to the 16th-century Yu Yuan Garden. This cultivated oasis captures the essence of the landscape art and architectural style of the Ming and Qing dynasties. It has also served as the inspiration for the famous willow-pattern chinaware. High walls adorned with huge, stone dragons shelter teahouses, pavilions, rockeries and carp ponds. Make your way back to the coach by way of a small lake, which is spanned by a picturesque zigzag bridge.


Jade Buddha Temple

Next head northwest to Jade Buddha Temple, founded in 1881. Its rare statues of Buddha, each carved from a single piece of white Burmese jade, are of special interest. Depending on the schedule of resident monks, you may be able to peek inside one of the temples to witness a prayer session.


All too soon, bid farewell to Shanghai and return to the ship.


Please note: This tour requires an extensive amount of walking for a distance of about 1.25 miles (two kilometres) and climbing of approximately 150 narrow steps. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. Casual clothing and comfortable walking shoes are suggested; there are no clothing restrictions to enter the temple. Photography is allowed in most areas of the temple but is not permitted inside the area where the Jade Buddha is located.

Shanghai Acrobatic Show

Experience a spectacular acrobatic show and a night view of the Shanghai's famous Bund during this evening. Departing the pier, a 30-minute drive brings you into the town centre and proceed to the nearby theatre for an exciting and first-rate show.


Chinese Acrobatics

For more than 2,000 years, the Chinese have practiced the art of acrobatics. Although elements of acrobatics appeared prior, the time of the Han Dynasty (221 BC-220 AD) saw on-stage displays with music. The artists combined aspects of their daily life with their individual and group talents, resulting in feats such as balancing on chairs and tables, jar tricks, rope-walking and pole-climbing. Between the 7th and 10th centuries, performances of acrobatics were often held at the imperial court. Tonight, sit back and watch in amazement as the troupe performs some of the best acrobatic art in China.


Acrobatic Show

The troupe, founded half a century ago, is renowned in international circus acrobatic circles, having toured many countries during the last decades. In an exuberant 90-minute performance that combines breath-taking acrobatics, martial arts, enchanting music, and spectacular lighting and set design, the award-winning troupe captures the essence of life's energy in a celebration of ancient and modern Chinese culture. The 40-member company includes phenomenal gymnasts, dancers, and jugglers who focus their bodies and minds to work in perfect harmony.


Following the show, enjoy a drive marveling at the city's glittering night lights transfer back to ship.


Please note: This tour requires advance booking at Silversea.com 7 days prior to the commencement of your cruise. Full cancellation penalties apply after the booking deadline.

Shanghai Architecture Tour with Local Expert

Explore the contemporary architecture and landmarks of Shanghai with an expert architect during this scenic and informative, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Shanghai City, Old Shanghai, Bund

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 30-minute drive to Shanghai, a dynamic, ever-changing city comprised of two major districts, the Bund and Pudong. Today, explore an eclectic blend of historic and contemporary landmarks with your expert guide, Patrick Cranley, who imparts his knowledge and insights about the architecture of Shanghai. Upon arrival in the city, proceed to Old Shanghai for a leisurely, guided stroll along the renovated promenade known as the Bund, the city's most famous street. To the Europeans, the Bund was colonial Shanghai's 'Wall Street', a place where fortunes were made and lost. Along this waterfront embankment stands some of the city's most prominent, important and popular landmarks constructed before 1950.


Pudong, Oriental Pearl TV and Radio Tower, Shanghai Centre, Observation Deck

Leaving the Bund, venture across the river to Pudong, the modern, somewhat futuristic side of Shanghai. Prior to 1990, the Pudong New Area was farmland and rice paddies. Today, this urban experiment is fast becoming Asia's financial, economic and commercial centre. Reflecting that sweeping vision is the city's most identifiable structure, the Oriental Pearl TV and Radio Tower. Rising approximately 1,535 feet (about 468 metres) above the Huangpu River, it was commissioned to be defiantly and emblematically 21st century. The third-tallest structure in the world, the tower has become a symbol of the city, and, as Patrick explains, fully captures the boldness and glitz of modern Shanghai. Next, experience the tallest building in China during a visit to the renowned Shanghai Centre. Upon arrival, the express elevator whisks you to the top observation deck, where, at the dizzying height, you can see the city of Shanghai unfold.


French Concession Area, Art Deco Buildings, Refreshment Stop

Next, re-board your coach and proceed through the French Quarter. Also known as the 'French Concession', this neighbourhood was formed in the mid-19th century and blossomed in the early-20th century. In the 1920s and 1930s, the French Concession was known for its lawlessness and decadence. Since then, the district has survived zealous city redevelopment efforts and continues to retain its unique character. As the foreign diplomatic quarter, the French Concession features top hotels, great shopping, bars and restaurants in Art Deco buildings. Leaving the French Concession, a refreshment stop is made to further engage Patrick about the city and landmarks seen during your tour. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking for approximately 1.24 miles-1.86 miles (about two kilometres-three kilometres), with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and 50 steps at the sites visited. This tour is not suitable for guests with a fear of heights, guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing, with flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended. Guests must be at least 14 years old to participate on this tour. The tour sequence may vary.

Shanghai Old & New

Experience a sample of Shanghai's old and new attractions on this introductory half-day overview excursion. On your sightseeing drive through this bustling metropolis, see the major points of interest that include the following:


The Bund

Drive through the most famous of Shanghai's streets - the symbolic Bund. To the Europeans, the Bund was Shanghai's Wall Street, a place where fortunes were made and lost. Along this waterfront embankment stand some of the city's most prominent landmarks.


The Former French Concession Area

In the 1920s and 1930s, the French Concession was known for its lawlessness and decadence. As the foreign diplomatic quarter, it features top hotels, great shopping, bars and restaurants in art deco buildings. Huauhai Road, the former Avenue Joffre, is one of Shanghai's favourite shopping streets.


People's Square

Located at the very centre of the city, People's Square is a garden-type open space surrounded by buildings and facilities for administration, cultural activities, transportation and commerce. The total green areas in the square cover 80,000 square meters. Seemingly the only broad expanse in the city, spreading before the newly built Museum, People's Square is now the most popular place for city residents to unwind.


Pudong New Area

Your sightseeing drive takes you through this area established in 1990 and through the tunnel under the Huangpu River. Pudong is the city's hot spot for investment in China. It consists of four key areas: the Finance and Trade Zone, the Jinqiao Export Processing Zone, Bonded Zone and Hi-Tech Zone.


Oriental Pearl Tower

At a height of 1,535 feet (468 metres), this is the tallest TV tower in Asia and the third highest in the world after Toronto and Moscow. Stop for photos at this Pudong landmark.


Shanghai World Financial Centre

The 1,600-foot-high (492 meters) Shanghai World Financial Centre (SWFC) is currently the world's second2 tallest completed building by roof, and the tallest building in China. It is a mixed use skyscraper which consists of offices, hotels, conference rooms, observation decks, and shopping malls on the ground floors.


Jin Mao Building

A silvery pagoda, a rising bamboo shoot, an upright pen - these are images evoked by the 88-storey-high Jin Mao Building in Pudong. It is one of the landmarks of Shanghai and a soaring monument to the city's economic boom. Enjoy the panoramic view from the Observation Lounge on the 88th floor. From here, the coach returns you to the ship.


Please note: This tour requires a minimal amount of gentle walking only and is suitable for guests with limited mobility and those who utilise a wheelchair. A minimum number of guests per guide is required for operation of this tour.

Shanghai’s Jewish Heritage

Learn about the modern Jewish history in Shanghai on this half-day outing that includes visits to the Ohel Moishe Synagogue, the old Jewish ghetto area, Huo Shan Park, the Jewish settlement region, and the Arts & Crafts Research Institute.


From the mid-19th century when the Sephardic Jewish merchant group began to appear in Shanghai, to the early 1940s, the Jews in Shanghai rose to become the largest Jewish community in the Far East. While the Nazis persecuted and massacred the Jews in Europe in the 1930s and during World War II, Shanghai was the only city in the world that freely allowed Jews to enter, requiring of them no visa, guarantee, or other documents. The city became a major destination of the Jewish people seeking asylum. From 1937 to 1939 approximately 30,000 European Jews swarmed into Shanghai - more than the total number of the Jewish refugees taken in by Canada, Australia, India, South Africa and New Zealand during the same period.


After settling down in Shanghai, the Jews lived together peacefully among the inhabitants of Shanghai and played a large role in promoting the economic and cultural development of the city with their outstanding creative power and wisdom. The Chinese and Jewish people each shared wealth and woe together in the hardships of the war years, forging a profound friendship. Since China's opening and reform policy, many 'Shanghai Jews' have come in succession to Shanghai to visit relatives, invest, make efforts or offer advice for the economy and construction of Shanghai, thus composing a new chapter in the history of Chinese and Jewish friendship. 'Shanghai Jew get-togethers' have become commonplace in various countries and districts where Jews have settled throughout the world.


The coach takes you from the pier to the Huo Shan Park, for a brief look at the Memorial Tablet for the Jews living in Shanghai during World War II. Next, follow your guide on foot through the Old Jewish ghetto area. Visit the Ohel Moishe Synagogue; while no longer an actively-functioning synagogue, today it serves as a museum.


Drive by outside of the Ohel Rachel Synagogue and through the French concession area. Here you can see the old Jewish theatre, the Jewish Club and Settlement. Disembark the coach and spend some time exploring the Arts & Crafts Research Institute in the area.


At the conclusion of your insightful look at Shanghai's Jewish history, return to the ship.


Please note: This tour requires a moderate amount of walking, with about 100 steps to climb. It is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. Photography is permitted inside the Ohel Moishe Synagogue. Order of sites see may vary.

Silver Shore Privato: The Water Town of Zhujiajiao Private Van

Venture beyond the modern metropolis of Shanghai to discover one of East China's traditional waterside towns on this intriguing this full-day outing with your exclusive guide in your air-conditioned van.Your private tour is for up to 4 of your friends and family. Situated beside the Dianshanhu Lake, Zhujiajiao illustrates the customs and culture of old-world China.


Commencing your journey at the pier, travel approximately an hour and a half past rustic farms and rippling fields of rice to Zhujiajiao, an ancient water town well-known throughout the country with a history of more than 1,700 years. Covering an area of 18 square miles (47 square kilometres), the little fan-shaped town glimmers like a bright pearl in the landscape of lakes and mountains. Endowed with another elegant name - Pearl Stream - the little town is the best-preserved among the four ancient towns in Shanghai. Unique old bridges across bubbling streams, small rivers shaded by willow trees, and houses with attached courtyards all transport people, who are living amidst the hustle and bustle of the modern big city, to a world full of antiquity, leisure and tranquillity.


Upon arrival in this small town, leisurely make your way along meandering streets and narrow alleyways on foot. Admire Zhujiajiao's numerous stone bridges and centuries-old buildings of white wall or black brick. Reminiscent of Venice's canals, local women display their wares from wooden boats bobbing in the water. Although this community boasts 36 moss-covered bridges, the most famous is the five-arched Fangsheng Bridge, a remnant of the Ming dynasty.


Continue your exploration at Daqing Youju, a post office that dates back to the Qing dynasty, the only remnant of its kind in East China. Visit the Tongtianhe Traditional Chinese Pharmacy, the largest in Zhujiajiao that accounted for almost half of the business scale of all pharmacies in the area in late Qing dynasty. For centuries, this Pharmacy has established its fame among the locals as it has adhered to the principle of 'Healing the Pain & Saving the Life' based on traditional Chinese ethics and medical culture. Today, the essence of traditional business and prescription practices as well as the original 'Shikumen'-style front gate and some of the old furniture have been well retained.


We suggest you stop for a traditional lunch of Chine-style cuisine served at a local restaurant. Following lunch, visit a silk factory where you have the opportunity of observing some of the ancient techniques in producing this elegant fabric. See the workers removing the fibres from cocoons before winding them onto spools. Later see how the fibres are woven into silk threads.


Relax in your private vehicle for the return driver to Shanghai.

Shanghai, No. 1 Waitanyuan

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 75-minute drive to No.1 Waitanyuan. Waitanyuan ('Source of The Bund' in Mandarin), is a magnificent historical complex located at the northernmost tip of the Bund, Shanghai's renowned riverside embankment, and is characterised by world-class period architecture and views of the Pudong Business District. Now a private club, No. 1 Waitanyuan offers a wide array of diverse services, facilities and event spaces in one of Shanghai's most iconic period buildings; part of a sprawling complex of historical Waitanyuan treasures.


Renaissance- and Veranda-Style Architecture, English Garden, Old Trees

Located at No. 33 Zhongshan Dongyi Road in Shanghai, this former British Consulate General was founded in 1849 but destroyed by fire in 1870, then redesigned in 1870-1872 into a two-story brick building incorporating the Renaissance and veranda styles. This expansive building features a total of five floors, including two above-ground floors covering a construction area of approximately 3,707 square yards (about 3,100 square meters), and underground floors covering over 11,960 square yards (about 10,000 square meters). The building has a typical, English-style garden in front, and is surrounded by 27 old trees to create a serene environment.


Pre-Dinner Cocktail, Dinner Accompanied by Live Jazz Music

In 1994, No. 1 Waitanwan was classified as an outstanding Historic Building in Shanghai, and, along with the Bund Building Cluster, a Key Cultural Relic Unit under State Protection in 1996. To echo its historic features, the interior is themed by 'historic architecture and contemporary art dialogue', and comprised of collections from many contemporary artists whose works reflect the communication between eastern and western cultures. Upon arrival at this private, exclusive venue, proceed for a pre-dinner cocktail. Afterward, you are seated for a set-menu, dinner accompanied by a live performance of jazz music for your dining pleasure. At the conclusion of your evening, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 75-minute drive back to the pier.

This tour is suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair, but is not recommended for guests prone to motion sickness.

The Garden City of Suzhou

The ancient, moated city of Suzhou is famous for its gardens and silk industry. On this full-day outing, come away with a sense of appreciation of the arts and natural fascinations of the area, the Silk Embroidery Research Institute, the Humble Administrator's Garden and the Grand Canal.


Following a two-hour journey through the countryside of rich farmlands and villages, arrive at the garden city of Suzhou. An ancient proverb says 'to be happy on earth, one must be born in Suzhou'. Marco Polo was equally enthusiastic following his visit to this historic town.


Rich bureaucrats of the Qing and Ming dynasties built elaborate palaces and exquisite classical gardens. A canal cruise introduces you to the sights, sounds, and activities along this picturesque waterway. Other highlights of your visit include the following:


Silk Embroidery Research Institute

On your guided tour, see some of the exhibitions that provide a thorough history of Suzhou's silk industry over the past 4000 years. After the tour, there will be an opportunity to purchase some of the items made at the institute.


Humble Administrator's Garden

Dating from the early 1500s, this garden is considered to be one of Suzhou's best. It features streams, ponds, bridges and islands of bamboo. Leaving the garden, proceed to the Bamboo Grove Restaurant (or similar) for a Chinese-style, set-menu lunch, followed by a cruise on the Grand Canal.


Grand Canal

A cruise on this fascinating waterway is a must on any visit to Suzhou. The ancient canal joins Suzhou with another garden city, Wuxi, and is still a vital link in transportation today. Observe local life passing by as you glide down Suzhou's own Grand Canal.


At the conclusion of your outing, re-board the coach for the journey back to the ship.


Please note: This tour requires an extensive amount of walking, with about 50 steps to climb. It is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. The duration of the drive between the pier and the town of Suzhou is approximately two hours in each direction.

The Maglev Train & New Shanghai

Experience the modern face of Shanghai on this half-day excursion that features an eight-minute ride on the fastest ever Maglev Train and the spectacular panoramic view from the top floor of Jin Mao Building.


Magnetic Levitation (Maglev) Train

Departing the pier, the coach takes you to the Long Yang Lu Station in the Pudong New District, where you board the Maglev Train for an eight-minute ride to the Pudong Airport. Made with ground-breaking German technology, the Magnetic Levitation (Maglev) Train is the new state-of-the-art mode of transportation in Shanghai. The Maglev has no wheels; it floats on an electromagnetic cushion propelled along a guideway at incredible speeds. Built at a cost of over one billion U.S. dollars, it runs for over 20 miles (33 kilometres) from Long Yang Lu Station to the Pudong International Airport. It can reach speeds up to 200 miles per hours (430 kilometres per hour), the highest speed of any operational ground transport.


During your ride, experience the sensation of flying as the train instantly accelerates to maximum speed. Afterwards, pause for a short while before the train returns you to the Long Yang Lu Station.


Pudong New District

Re-board the coach and drive to the Lujiazui Area of the Pudong New District. Developed from farmland only a decade ago and now home to numerous high-rise office buildings, this area has become the financial centre of China. Stop for photos at the futuristic Oriental Pearl TV Tower, the highest TV Tower in China and third-highest in the world. Then, continue to the famous Jin Mao Building, take an express elevator to the observation deck, and enjoy a panoramic view of Shanghai and Huangpu River.


The coach returns you to the ship after this dynamic tour.


Please note: This tour requires a moderate amount of activity. There is a minimal amount of walking; however, there are about 30 steps to climb. It is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and those who utilise a wheelchair. The Maglev train is public transportation; crowds can be anticipated.

The Water Town of Zhujiajiao

Venture beyond the modern metropolis of Shanghai to discover one of East China's traditional waterside towns on this intriguing, full-day excursion. Situated beside the Dianshanhu Lake, Zhujiajiao illustrates the customs and culture of old-world China.


Commencing your journey at the pier, travel by coach for approximately an hour and a half past rustic farms and rippling fields of rice to Zhujiajiao, an ancient water town well-known throughout the country with a history of more than 1,700 years. Covering an area of 18 square miles (47 square kilometres), the little fan-shaped town glimmers like a bright pearl in the landscape of lakes and mountains. Endowed with another elegant name - Pearl Stream - the little town is the best-preserved among the four ancient towns in Shanghai. Unique old bridges across bubbling streams, small rivers shaded by willow trees, and houses with attached courtyards all transport people, who are living amidst the hustle and bustle of the modern big city, to a world full of antiquity, leisure and tranquillity.


Upon arrival in this small town, leisurely make your way along meandering streets and narrow alleyways on foot. Admire Zhujiajiao's numerous stone bridges and centuries-old buildings of white wall or black brick. Reminiscent of Venice's canals, local women display their wares from wooden boats bobbing in the water. Although this community boasts 36 moss-covered bridges, the most famous is the five-arched Fangsheng Bridge, a remnant of the Ming dynasty.


Continue your exploration at Daqing Youju, a post office that dates back to the Qing dynasty, the only remnant of its kind in East China. Visit the Tongtianhe Traditional Chinese Pharmacy, the largest in Zhujiajiao that accounted for almost half of the business scale of all pharmacies in the area in late Qing dynasty. For centuries, this Pharmacy has established its fame among the locals as it has adhered to the principle of 'Healing the Pain & Saving the Life' based on traditional Chinese ethics and medical culture. Today, the essence of traditional business and prescription practices as well as the original 'Shikumen'-style front gate and some of the old furniture have been well retained.


A traditional lunch of Chinese-style cuisine is served at a local restaurant.


Following lunch, visit a silk factory where you have the opportunity of observing some of the ancient techniques in producing this elegant fabric. See the workers removing the fibres from cocoons before winding them onto spools. Later see how the fibres are woven into silk threads.


Re-board the coach for the return drive to the ship.


Please note: This tour requires an extensive amount of walking for about 1.5 miles (2.5 kilometres) with approximately 80 steps to climb. It is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. Dress in casual layers and wear comfortable walking shoes. The order of sights visited may vary. Bring local currency for any purchases.

Yu Yuan Gardens & Shanghai Museum

See two true highlights of the city of Shanghai, Yu Yuan Gardens and the Shanghai Museum, on this half-day exploration.


Yu Yuan Gardens

Board the coach and depart from the pier for the brief drive to the gardens. In the crowded maze of cobbled alleyways that comprise the old Chinese city of Shanghai, catch a glimpse of part of this city's rich history. Here, visit the Yu Yuan, or Mandarin Gardens, which inspired the famous willow pattern chinaware. Built for the Pan family, wealthy Ming dynasty officials of the mid-16th century, the garden is surrounded by high walls adorned with huge stone dragons. Inside, numerous halls and pavilions of characteristic architectural style are connected by moon gates and zigzag bridges designed to discourage the entrance of demons who can only move in a straight line.


Next, proceed to the new Shanghai Museum, located at Renmin, or People's Square.


Shanghai Museum

Opened in 1995 and regarded as the world's finest showcase of Chinese art and antiquities, the museum contains an excellent and well-displayed collection of old bronzes and ceramics as well as paintings and scrolls. Documenting 5,000 years of Chinese history, this museum's collections include galleries with ancient sculptures, jade, coins, Ming and Qing furniture, and Chinese seals.


Listen as your guide provides an introduction of the museum. Then, explore independently or if you prefer, follow the guide through the bronze and porcelain exhibits, to the Ming and Qing furniture, calligraphy, and Painting and Chinese seals. Re-group at the appointed time.


As your tour of the museum concludes, re-board the coach and return to the ship.


Please note: This tour requires a moderate amount of walking, some of which is over uneven terrain at the gardens. There are approximately 30 steps to climb. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. Tour may operate in reverse order.

He saw this kind of pagoda in India. When he was back home, for storing Buddhist text and figures of Buddha, he built a pagoda in Cien Temple imitating the structure of pagoda in India, and named it Goose Pagoda. One of the pagodas many functions were to hold sutras and figurines of the Buddha that were brought to China from India by the Buddhist translator and traveler Monk Xuanzang.

Nothing prepares the visitor for the amazing sight of a stunningly well-preserved, life-size honour guard standing in ranks near the tomb of Emperor Ch'in Shih Huang-ti, who died in 210 BC. The soldiers were first discovered in 1974 by a local farmer who was digging a well. So far, three vaults have been excavated, the first alone containing more than 6,000 men and horses arranged in an imposing formation. Every soldier differs in facial features and expressions and most carry actual weapons of the day. The find is regarded by many as the most sensational archaeological discovery of the 20th century. A protective hangar constructed over them comprises now the Museum of the Terra Cotta Warriors.
