Shanghai, China's largest and most prosperous city, exudes an atmosphere of self-confidence and vitality. For those reasons alone it's worth a visit, even though the city isn't exactly brimming with sightseeing venues. Below are the what to do in shanghai.
1. Take a ride on the Maglev — the world's fastest train

A ride in the Maglev train from Pudong Airport to the city center is a perfect way to feel super-modern Shanghai.

At 431 kph (270 mph, twice the speed of a theme park roller coaster), this air-conditioned, super-clean, magnetically-levitated train covers 30 km (19 miles) in only 8 minutes, though you hardly feel you're moving!

Visit the Maglev Museum to understand the engineering feat and its history. Address: Maglev Longyang Road Station, floor 1. More on the Maglev Cruise along Huangpu River on your way to The Bund

Strolling along The Bund is one of the things you should never miss when on a tour to Shanghai.

The Bund displays Shanghai's classic skyline views of colonial architecture and skyscrapers along the 500m wide Huangpu River, which dissects the city into two.

Located on the People's Square near Nanjing Road, the "glassy" Shanghai Museum has a large collection of rare cultural relics — over 120,000 pieces. An example of artifacts include over 400 beautifully decorated bronzes.

Some exhibits have English descriptions, including the Ancient Ceramics, Ancient Bronzes, and Ancient Sculptures. Read more on Shanghai Museum. 4. Enjoy green spaces at Yuyuan Garden

It has become a city highlight due to its beautiful scenery, characterized by decorated bridges, colorful pagodas and intimate enclaves separated by "dragon walls" — partitions with dragon decorations on top.
