Local Attractions

The Bund
Distance from hotel: 50 m 
This area is home to a myriad of European-styled buildings that face the Huangpu River. A hot spot for chic restaurants and shopping opportunities, the Bund is a must-see destination when visiting Shanghai. Architectural styles include gothic, baroque, Romanesque, and renaissance. Locals say the best time for a stroll through the region is after dark, when the beautiful buildings are lit against the scenic river view.
People's Square
Distance from hotel: 1.7 km (10 min by car)
Once the home to the city's racetracks, the region today is a center of culture and the arts. The main focus of the area is the impressive Shanghai Museum. Other interesting sites include the Grand Theater, Exhibition Center, People's Park and Shanghai Art Museum.
Old Shanghai City
Distance from hotel: 1.9 km (10 min by car)
This region of the city was once the site of surrounding walls and many historic buildings. Today, it's dominated by narrow streets and hidden alleyways that hold a treasure of interesting sights. The city is currently undergoing massive restoration and gentrification with many historic and traditional buildings being torn down. If you want to catch a glimpse of Old Shanghai, better soon than later.
Yu Yuan Garden
Distance from hotel: 1.3 km (5 min by car)
In the center of Old Town, just southwest of the Bund, the Garden of Peace and Comfort offers and escape from the fast pace of the surrounding city. With 30 pavilions spanning over 5 acres, this 16th century garden can be explored for days. Of the many temples and halls, the Grand Rockery is the most popular. Two thousand tons of rare yellow stones are combined with rice glue to form a massive sculpture that stands 46 feet high. 
Xujiahui Cathedral
158 Puxi Rd, Shanghai  
• 21-6438-2595
Distance from hotel: 7.2 km (30 min by car)
This famous Shanghai attraction was once better known as the St. Ignatius Cathedral. Founded by Jesuits in 1848, the brick-red Gothic structure has served numerous purposes over the years: the headquarters for rebel forces during the Taiping Rebellion, a missionary seminary, orphanage, college, library, publishing house, and observatory. Now restored, mass held at the Cathedral every Sunday.
