Currently under construction, China’s second Disney theme park will be reachable by car in just 25 minutes.
A perfect getaway in Waigaoqiao can take you to the cultural area of Holland Town, Shanghai’s architectural ode to all things Dutch. Take a stroll in the 300-hectare Shanghai Binjiang Forest Park to appreciate its natural beauty, fresh air, and barbecue.
Shoppers can leisurely browse through the Sunland duty-free mall, which comprises an Auchan market, a Xingmei cinema, and numerous restaurants. Minutes away from the hotel by car are approximately 4,000 varieties of imported foods and goods at the Direct Imported Goods Market, Australian Pavilion, and Wine Center.
Take an excursion to see the sprawling skyline at The Bund, an area that has symbolized the city since the 1920s; the storied pedestrian street Xintiandi; the historic and fashionable French Concession; or the artist area Tianzifang.
Back in Pudong, shopping abounds at the Super Brand Mall. Located in Lujiazui, this spacious mall is home to more than 100 international fashion brand boutiques, as well as food and beverage establishments. If you like dumplings, there is no better place than Shanghai. Called xiao long bao, the steamed soup buns traditionally have 18 folds and are filled with pork, seafood, or vegetables.
