Meet your tour guide at the Ocean Terminal to begin your tour to the Sam Tung UK Museum. This is a restored 18th Century Hakka walled village built in 1786. A temporary exhibition on Chinese education in the exhibition hall and full commentary will bring everything to life.

Continue on to Tai Po Old Market that provides a small remnant of its traditional past in the midst of modern town planning. You can find fish, fruit, vegetables, meat and household goods at this market.

We will then make a stop at the Man Mo Temple in Tai Po.

Our final stop will be Lo Wai Walled Village. This is the first walled village built by the Tang clan. Built on a small hill, it is enclosed by brick walls on all four sides. The narrowness of the entrance was meant to facilitate the defense of the village. In 1997, Lo Wai was declared a monument. Today, it remains the cradle of clan activities and houses the family’s descendants.

Transfer back to Ocean Terminal.

Shanghai Highlights with Lunch at the Whampoa Club - Shanghai - 2018 ( 7 Hours )
Shanghai, China | 18 Oct 2018

  • Meals: Lunch
  • Recommended Ages: All Ages
  • Activity Level: Moderate
  • Experience(s): Sightseeing • Food & Wine • Culture, History & Arts

Shanghai as a whole encompasses a huge area, but the city center is a relatively small district situated by the Huangpu River in what is called Puxi (west of the river). One boundary of the city center is Shanghai's waterfront boulevard also known as the Bund. Wai Tai (The Bund) combines the best aspects of the city's pre-1949 era and its future-oriented focus. In the early 1920s, the Bund became the city's foreign street: Americans and Europeans built banks, trading houses, clubs, consulates, and hotels in styles from neoclassical to Art Deco. The municipal government has renovated the old buildings.

We begin our morning with a first- hand look at the Shanghai of old with a walk through the city’s old Chinese quarter to the lovely Yu Yuan garden, a 16th century Ming Dynasty private garden and residence. Despite Shanghai’s crowded streets and teeming masses, the garden remains an oasis of tranquility. Its deceptive size, laid out with many corners and breezeways to give one the illusion of size, houses in exquisite harmony the essential elements of a Chinese garden – pavilions, water, vegetation, rock formations, and bridges. The Old Town refers to the original Chinese city that flourished in the Ming dynasty. The architecture of the area has been restored to the original Ming period style.

Next, we will visit the Shanghai Urban Planning Museum. This new landmark memorizes the past, records the present and previews the future. The 20,000 square meter exhibition hall contains the remarkable past of this great city and focuses on the unbelievable changes the open-door policies have caused.

We will then enjoy a lunch of local cuisine at Whampoa Club, a throwback to the 1930's of Shanghai, beside the Huangpu River.

After lunch we will take a short drive around the French Concession district, one of the original European settlement areas, to view the many fine examples of 19th and early 20th century architecture gracing the streets and alleys before returning to the ship.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Casual with comfortable shoes. Moderate walking.
