My husband and I went to the Locals on Tap and, then, the next day, did the Old Shanghai tour. Linda was our guide and she was great. Not only did we get an historical introduction to several neighborhoods in Shanghai, we learned about what it's like to actually live in the city today. Linda was born in China, but... More

I took the locals on tap tour last night and had an incredible time. It was just like hanging out with friends back home, except in Shanghai! We explored some of the French Concession neighborhood and stopped at a couple of places for drinks. I got a lot of awesome tips for more things to do while I'm in Shanghai,... More

If you're new to Shanghai and want to explore the City beyond the major sights that's the right tour to start. Anita, my guide (I was the only one at that date) did a great job to explain everything - from local customs, visiting some backstreets or local markets. If you want to see the top-5 sights this is the... More

Informative and helpful for travelers new to Shanghai/China - suggest that this tour is taken close to arrival time. Our guide Wing was enthusiastic, English very good and had a depth of local knowledge.

Excellent tour. Daniel was my tour guide (and I was the only one so got VIP treatment). Had a lovely late lunch at the vegetarian restaurant by the Temple after which we went for a walk through some of the local area and stopped in a typical Chinese market, tried a 'moon cake' and made an impromptu stop at a...

We spent 3 hours with Joyce learning about the Chinese foods in stores, having samples, and then ending at a VERY popular Dim Sum restaurant. The best part was walking through the stores and having all the foods we had seen explained to us. We went to vegetable and fish market too. The tour started at the Jing-An temple across... More

Our tour guide, Joyce took us to two local restaurants and for a tour of the markets and some local shops. She was very interesting to talk to, very friendly and had a great knowledge of the local area. We felt we learnt a great deal about local Shanghai food and culture.

Staying in The Bund

Neighbourhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
