Shanghai Sightseeing –

I returned to Shanghai for my second visit and have put together the following trip report:

Shanghai Trip Report – Sightseeing in Shanghai

I arrived in Shanghai in the late afternoon. After taking a taxi to my hotel. I got situated in the room I decided to go for a walk to check out the area surrounding the hotel.

The Grand Hyatt Shanghai is located in the business/financial area of the city. There were several walkways that were located above street level so you could easily walk in between buildings.

The walkway gave some great views of some of the largest buildings in Shanghai.

There were a lot of people out walking around that evening.

I walked along the upper level walkway for a while and took a few pictures along the way.

The hotel was located near the Shanghai Tower, which is the largest building in China.

I also took a few pictures of the icon TV tower that has become a tourist attraction in Shanghai. At night it is lit up in multiple colors and offers a great view.

The following morning, I did more walking around and saw some of the buildings during the day time.

I visited a park which was located near the financial district. The park offered a lot of green space, water and an area to relax.

I took a ferry across the Bund to the area that offers a long walkway along the river as well as some of the shopping areas within the city.

The ferry was only 2 RNB and it runs frequently. At the time I arrived, I waited about 10 minutes for it.

The ferry itself was just a large room that offered inside standing as well as a smaller area on the outside.

The ride itself lasted about 10 minutes.

Once I exited the ferry I walked along the water and then visited some of the shopping areas in the city.
