    Take your Shanghai pictures memories here, the world famous views of pudong can be take. Here. Plenty of good spots to admire the shanghai skyline, take the rivers cruises and walking distance from many touristy places like the bund, Nanjing street and upscale restaurants. It’s a must while you visit Shangai and never regret.

    Unfortunately, the front lawn was under construction, which blocks the full view. Additionally, the gate & doors were not open for regular viewing, but I walked around the exterior to the best of my ability. It is my understanding there is Mass being held on Sunday mornings at 7:00 AM and Sunday evenings at 18:00, but I did not confirm as only learned after my visit. The exterior is rather grand and the grotto can be seen from the fence. The "gift shop" was open. It's worth standing in its presence. There is a tourist information booth to the right of the cathedral when walking down the lane to the front of the gate. The brochure is worth taking and was given to me in English. Easily accessible from Metro, walking, or Didi. Worth your time, if nothing else for a few moments of reflection - regardless of your religious beliefs.

    A great lady to learn about. Her life. Her political career. Her achievements. Her writings. This residence memorial has been done up really nicely with descriptions in Chinese and English. Main house was lovely as well but quite difficult to look around if the crowd is too big. Garden was lovely.

    Probably 1 of the best shopping malls in shanghai in addition to IFC. Unlike IFC, IAPM has many more restaurant and food options. As well as non luxury shops. And a Sephora and Muji. IFC is more luxury focused and a whole floor of cosmetics

    We went last weekend in winter. It was already pretty awesome. Need to come back in Spring to witness the whole garden in full bloom. Great visit. Huge area to cover though! There’s conversatories, and separate gardens in this compound. We enjoyed our visit but it was a looooooooong metro ride for us coming from Pudong!

    This museum is in a building built in 1905 originally as a home, and houses cultural relics. It has modern and contemporary pieces of art that exhibit the culture of Shanghai. There are three floors and pieces on display include paintings, jade, ivory, and wood carvings, needlework pieces and more.

    Some of the pieces were so intricate and gorgeous. Obviously a lot of time and love went into making them.

    There are some live art creation events that happen, with artists there working. Also a gift shop is available to make some purchases, though things seems rather expensive.

    The place isn't overly big, but we did see several pieces that were very impressive. I'd recommend checking it out.

    Most people won't come here even though it's right next to the Longhua temple. It's a park with memorials and sculptures meant to honor those who were executed for being communists. It's a large park with sculptures scattered around. There is a well curated museum in the center where you can learn more of the history.

    The Long Museums are confusing as there are TWO, one on Pudong side and the other on the old Bund side of Shanghai, labelled “Xi’an”.

    There are world class special exhibitions and a very good, well-curated exhibition on Chinese realist art. The labeling has some English translation but help from a Chinese speaker is useful.

    But good heavens it expensive by Chinese standards — compared to typical admission fees of 40 CNY, Long Museum is 250 CNY more than $40 per person.

    I have always wanted to visit this park and finally did so. It is a hidden gem in Xuhui District. It is only 2 rmb or cny to get into the park. It is beautiful with many varieties of plants and trees. I walked around and felt soothed being around nature. At the time I was there were not a lot of people around. I did find that there are many cats there. They are very cute (if you like cats) and calming to look at. It is not far from Guilin Park metro station. If you need a short respite from the city life, this place is very nice to visit.

    It's hardly an 'attraction,' but it's an okay library with foreigner-friendly interface (in certain areas). Computerized book ordering is in Chinese, but the online search has English and there are English speaking interns at the reception. It's possible to wander in some areas without being a member, but most require swiping your card. Registering is fairly easy, interns can help; this will require your passport once. There are places to use your laptop, a foreign books section and a fair selection of English-language materials by request in the reading room. Membership in the Shanghai Library also gives access to Zi-Ka-Wei antique book vault.

    So came here to eat! There are a lot of restaurants - both local and International. Quite a few good name hotels along this road as well. A good place to come at night

    it was cool to see some of the ancient architecture like this still standing and being preserved. This was one of the reasons we came to china was to see structures like this. The tower was cool, wish we could have went up inside it.

    I was more impressed with the Xujiahui metro station. GIGANTIC!!! There are 20 exits in this station. Exit No. 10 will take you straight to Metro City Mall. The mall looks quite exciting. It was crowded as it was a rainy day. This mall is not as spacious as many others in Shanghai so when it is crowded, it is not that comfortable to walk around. Moreover people here do not mind lining up for a long time for food! So, ground floor has the most people there as bakeries and restaurants are there. Food is not a worry in this mall, there’s restaurants on every floor!
