Your private driver and guide will pick you up from Shanghai port. Start your tour with a visit to the Jade Buddha Temple where you’ll see the best collection of jade sculptures from Myanmar. Constructed in the Qing dynasty, the temple follows the architectural style of the Song dynasty. Visit the Shanghai Buddhist Institute, also housed within the temple, and learn about the community of monks who live there.
Next up is the Fresh Water Pearl Gallery where you’ll see the interesting process of pearl cultivation. Afterwards, travel to the heart of the city and stop for a leisurely walk around Shanghai People’s Square. Converted from a former horseracing track, the square is a vast green area with the Shanghai Grand Theater and Shanghai Art Museum located inside. Visit the Feng Shui-inspired Shanghai Museum to see a comprehensive collection of Chinese arts, including paintings, calligraphy, sculptures, jade carvings and furniture. Return to Shanghai port for your cruise departure. Trip ends.
