Sometimes, the same old sun holidays get a bit tiresome and you just fancy heading somewhere for a whole new experience! Somewhere with bright lights and a whole new culture. Somewhere like…China! This trip I found for you to Shanghai is an absolute steal from expedia.ie as it includes a hotel and flight! And not just any hotel, the Regal Plaza Hotel and Residence which has a 90% rating on Trip Advisor and some great reviews from previous guests.
Leaving Dublin on November 6, you better make yourself comfortable as you have a 15 hour flight ahead of you. Once you land however, you have a fun-filled few days to look forward to.
What is so fascinating about Shanghai is that it is not your regular tourist trap. Rather than paying big money for some so-called must-see monuments or spending hours walking around a museum you don’t have much interest in, everything important can be found by simply roaming the wonderful streets. Go explore and create your own adventure. Be warned, the city is fast and not a place for lounging around. Allow yourself to get swept up in the moment with everything that is on offer.
Walk down The Bund, which translates as embankment along a muddy waterfront, where fabulous architecture from Gothic, Baroque, Romanesque, Classicism and the Renaissance, graces the street. On the People’s Square you will find a rather unusual, smart musical fountain. Yuyuan, is the most famous garden in Shanghai, located in the heart of the old city. It is here you really become acquainted with Chinese culture as there are many food vendors selling their products to tourists. Yuyuan is a place of peace and comfort to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and is called this because “yu” means “peace and health”.
Catch some acrobatics or sail on a river cruise, admire the artsy streets and the unique way of life here. Whatever you do, it will be a trip of a lifetime.
