A must see on every tour itinerary to Shanghai, the Bund is the historical row of banks built before World War II by the major foreign powers at the time. Situated on the banks of the Huangpu River, the Bund has a long riverside promenade, which both Chinese and foreign tourists like to stroll for the panoramic view and people watching. Most of the buildings still stand in their original style, and some are even used as banks again, while others house trendy shops, restaurants, and offices.
Former HSBC building
This six-floor neoclassical building in the Bund area of Shanghai was the headquarters of the Shanghai branch of The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation from 1923 to 1955.
Yuyuan Garden gives visitors a preview of what they will see if they visit the historical gardens of Suzhou. Finely cultivated with an eye for style and detail rarely seen in modern gardens, Yuyuan Garden is a peaceful retreat from the crowded city streets. It can get a bit crowded inside the garden lanes itself when tour groups go through, but there are lots of little areas where you can retreat to a corner if you want.
Outside the garden itself are hundreds of shops and stalls selling tourist souveniers. The area also hosts quite a few restaurants where you can find a decent lunch, and even a Starbucks and a HÃ¤agen-Dazs if you need some western comfort food or drinks.
Starting at the Bund and going to People’s Square, Nanjing Road is Shanghai’s most famous shopping street. Much of it is a wide pedestrian street where you can stroll, shop or dine. Colorful by day or night, it’s popular with tourists for a stroll.
Shanghai Old Street
Shanghai “Old” Street is actually a completely new reproduction and contains many tourist shops full of souvenirs and little dumpling shops. Not great and not bad, it’s easy to see on your way to Yuyuan Garden since its right next to it.
Found all over China, yet allegedly invented in Shanghai, these dumplings are traditionally filled with pork and jellied pork broth, which melts into a flavorful soup during steaming. Head to Nianxiang Montou Dian (located in Yuyuan garden) to try their famous take on the xiaolongbao, made with crab and pork.
These small dumplings stuffed with sticky rice flavoured with pork and shiitake mushroom make for a delicious snack and can be found at street vendors all over the city.
This technique involves slow-cooking fatty belly pork in mixture of sugar, soy sauce, and fermented bean paste. Try this mouthwatering dish all over the city from street-vendors to high-end restaurants.
A quintessential Shanghainese dish, there is an entire street dedicated to this spiny crustacean. Head to Shouning Road to sample the best the city has to offer.
