Day 2: Shanghai
City Sightseeing (B,L)


Today will be spent touring the sights that make Shanghai one of the word’s great cities. After breakfast in the hotel, our first stop will be at the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Hall. If you’re stunned by Shanghai today, go see how it will look in 2020. The centerpiece is an enormous scale model of the city centre that takes an entire upper floor. It shows current and future development, and it’s mind-boggling. There are raised walkways for viewing the model from different angles, and the detail is fascinating, showing clearly what’s planned, and what already exists. City planning is a hot topic throughout the world, and the centre is themed around "City, Human, Environment and Development", which concern city dwellers from any country. The glimpse of present and future Shanghai can provide much food for thought, as well as enjoyment and a good overview of this often overwhelming city.

Then we will go to get a bird’s eye view of Shanghai at the Shanghai World Financial Center. Shanghai World Financial Center is the highest building in Shanghai, as it creates a new Shanghai landmark along with the Oriental Pearl TV Tower and Jinmao Tower. It takes about 1 minute from first floor to 95th by the elevator with a speed of 10 meters per second. In the 100th viewing pavilion, visitors can see the peak of Oriental Pearl TV Tower and Jinmao Tower. In the 55 meters long viewing gallery, visitors can see the moving cars and passerby clearly through 3 transparent glass floors. The observation bridge atop the building will be the highest outdoor observation deck in the world.

We’ll next see Shanghai’s most famed and iconic site, the Bund. The Bund is a famous waterfront and regarded as the symbol of Shanghai for hundreds of years. It affords marvelous views across the river of the Pudong district and its numerous towers. The most famous and attractive sight which is at the west side of the Bund are the 52 various buildings of different architectural styles including Gothic, Baroque, Romanesque, Classicism and the Renaissance.

It will then be time for a leisurely stroll through Yuyuan Garden. Yuyuan Garden is a famed classical garden, and even though it may be small, it contains numerous pavilions, halls, rockeries, ponds and cloisters, and all have unique characteristics. There are six main scenic areas in the garden: Sansui Hall, Wanhua Chamber, Dianchun Hall, Huijing Hall, Yuhua Hall and the Inner Garden. Each area features several scenic spots within its borders.

After a lunch of Shanghai cuisine, we’ll go to the Jiangnan Silk Museum, to see how silk is produced from the cocoons of silk worms, and turned into the beautiful fabric we all know and love. Silk is an extremely important trade in this area of the country Silk filled duvets are excellent value, and the showroom offers everything from small souvenirs to larger items. The beauty of real silk is that it's so light, and packs really easily.

We’ll then return to the hotel, and you are free to spend your night further exploring Shanghai on your own.

Day 3: Mt. Huangshan (B, L, D)

After breakfast in the hotel, we will drive to Yellow Mountain, the premier sight of Mt. Huangshan. With a height of 1873 meters (6145 feet), is the highest peak of the Mt. Huangshan Scenic Area. At present over 500 kinds of animals and 1500 kinds of plants live on the Huangshan Mountains. UNESCO listed Yellow Mountain as one of the World Natural Heritage sites in 1990. In order to get up the mountain, we’ll take the cable car, which is included in the price of your tour.

While on Yellow Mountain, we will see some curious sights, such as the Strange Pines, which re seen in every corner of Yellow Mountain. You will be amazed by their vitality and strength. The seeds fall into the crevices where they take root and grow with great vigor. The uneven terrain prevents the pines from growing upright. Instead they become crooked and even downward. Another feature of Huangshan pines is that many trees grow branches on one side only. Some notable ones that we will see include the Guest-Greeting Pine (in front of the stone lion of the Jade Screen Pavilion in the Jade Screen Scenic Area), and the Guest-Goodbye Pine (to the right of the Jade Screen Pavilion).

We’ll also come across the Jade Screen Scenic Area, and this scenic area has Jade Screen Pavilion as its center and the Lotus Peak and the Heavenly Capital Peak as the main body. This is the Front Mountain as people usually call it. Along the road you will find Peng Lai Three Islands, 100-step Scaling Ladder, the Thread of the Sky and the New Thread of the Sky. "Splendid is the landscape", handwritings by Chairman Mao Ze Dong, are inscribed on the Jade Screen Peak.

We’ll on the peaks of Yellow Mountain, we’ll see the numerous seas and mists of clouds that hover around the mountain. At sunset, the glistening clouds assume every hue from red to purple. You cannot help marveling at this gift from the Creator! You will be struck by the beauty when all the red leaves are floating on the white clouds in autumn, when the clouds gush between the peaks like a raging river while the red leaves flutter delicately in the breeze.

After the sunset, we’ll drive back to Huangshan city where we will spend the night night in the same hotel as the evening before.
