Day trips from Shanghai?

Jump to last reply

Long story short: I might have the chance to study in Shanghai for two months!
Regarding tourism, I’d like to stay close to the city since I’m not a confident solo traveller, maybe out for a day trip or something (also accommodation in Shanghai is payed for). Having in mind I’ll be there for studies, I won’t have that much time for tourism unless it’s weekends or after the two months of the scholarship. I already have many things to do in the city, but any recommendations of what I could do around Shanghai?
I’m more interested in seeing things related to Chinese culture and history, so any shrines, castles or temples and the like would be great.

Are these good day trips?
- Nanjing
- Zhenjiang
- Wuxi (I’d like to see Lake Taihu, as well as sights in the city, are a couple of days better for this?)
- Chongming Island
- The water towns and cities I have are Zgujiajiao, Fengjing, Zhouzhuang, Suzhou, Hangzhou, Tonglizhen and Wuzhenzhen. Which ones would you recommend, since I probably will only choose one or two?

And last but not least, I would like to go to Huangshan Mountain (and maybe Jiuhua Shan). How would I go about that?

Thanks! I’ve just started the planning and don’t know much about the place, so please forgive my ignorance :P
