Shanghai: Places to Explore

Xintiandi and City Center

Xintiandi is Shanghai's showpiece restoration project. Reproduction shikumen (stone gate houses) contain expensive bars, restaurants, and chic boutiques. It's at its most magical on a warm night, when locals, expats, and visitors alike pull up a chair at one of the open-air restaurants and watch the world go by.

Another good people-watching spot is the area around People's Square, which has some magnificent examples of modern and historical architecture and a smattering of museums. The adjoining People's Park is a pleasant green space where it's possible to escape the clamor of the city for a while.
