How to enjoy Shanghai

There’s a sense of excitement running through the heart of Shanghai that is so palpable you could almost hold it. Whether born from the pace of change, or the shiver-point of ancient and modern colliding, it tastes delicious

  • Culinary secrets from the royal kitchens are on the menu at Shanghai’s most exclusive restaurant, Family Li
  • Whether you regard it as kitsch or stylish, Shanghai’s iconic pink rocket, Pearl Tower, has amazing viewing platforms
  • The first public museum of contemporary art in mainland China, the Power Station of Art, can be found in the former Nanshi Power Plant

Ask your concierge to book an evening at the exclusive M1NT for breathtaking floor to ceiling city views and the chance to dance the night away with an ominously large shark tank. A real one, not a euphemism. For a truly exceptional wine experience, speak to the sommelier at the House of Roosevelt. From the Sky Bar and Restaurant to the Wine Cellar, the entire building and everything in it is so remarkable, you’ll be forever grateful for our recommendation.

For a leisurely stroll away from the bustle of the city, find your way to Yuyuan Garden. The largest of Shanghai’s ancient gardens, it features picture-perfect pagodas from both the Ming and Qing dynasties, hidden courtyards and carp-filled streams. One of Shanghai’s favourite pastimes is shopping. For stylish big-ticket items explore the stores of the Bund or the Shaanxi Road. For a flattering fusion of East meets West, discover the emporia of Shanghai Tang.
