Ideas for additional five days after package tour ends in Shanghai

Jump to last reply

My wife and I (57, 63) are going to China for the first time in late May, 2013. We are taking a Gate 1 Discovery Tour for 14 nights which ends up with two nights in Shanghai. We always like to stay another 3-5 nights before returning to the US, so we would like suggestions for what to do for the 5 nights before leaving PVG for LAX late morning.
We usually like to spend the last two days at a very nice hotel not far from the airport so that we don't have to travel far before the flight. I have a lot of SPG, Marriott and Hyatt points so I wouldn't mind using them. We would be open to taking a 2-3 hour train trip to get to wherever is suggested. I would rather not have to fly.
We like gardens, seaside resorts or beautiful landscapes (I take a lot of pictures). We also like to discover small cities. Thanks.
