Shanghai City Day Tour (SWFC & The Bund at Night)

6-days winter solo backpacking in Mainland China
january 26 -  february 01, 2013 saturday to friday

Shanghai City day tour (yuyuan and S&T museum)

Shanghai World Financial Center (SWFC) was the second-tallest building in the world and the tallest structure in Mainland China. It also had the highest occupied floor and the highest height to roof, two categories used to determine the title of "world’s tallest building". The SWFC opened its observation deck 30 August 2008 as the world's tallest at the time of its completion, offers views from 474 m (1,555 ft) above ground level.

The SWFC will be exceeded in height by the adjacent Shanghai Tower, which is due for completion in 2014. SWFC, Shanghai Tower and Jin Mao Tower will form the world's first adjacent grouping of three supertall skyscrapers.

how to get to SWFC Observatory;
just take metro subway bound to lujiazu station which is almost 400 meters away to the building. Entrance fee cost 150 cny with opening hours from 0900H-2000H.

The Bund Sightseeing Tunnel is one of Shanghai's top five tourist atrractions and it's also one of its strangest. Bizarre, trippy audio-visual effects play as you travel in an automated car 'into the core of the Earth' under the Huangpu river.

how to get to The Bund Sightseeing Tunnel;
walk passed the Orient Pearl TV tower which is almost 300 meters away. Entrance fee cost 50 cny with opening hours from 0900H-2000H.
I intentionally put the shanghai city center tour in later part of this day-tour due to much awaited nightscape shots in The Bund and skyscrapers over the Huangpu river. So from 1400H going to SWFC Observatory, passing through Jin Mao tower and the Orient pearl tv tower, then going to the other side of the river through The Bund sightseeing tunnel around 1800H.
