Discover a special perspective on Shanghai when you explore after dark—and travel both on foot and by boat—during this private, two-in-one tour. In the evening, meet your guide directly at your hotel and set off. First, hop aboard a yacht, and, thanks to your VIP tickets, enjoy prime views of the city’s skyline as you chart the Huangpu River. Then, transfer to Shanghai’s Old City, where you explore its heritage bridges and architecture. Finish your tour in the vibrant Xintiandi area.
