It receives thousands of visitors and worshipers everyday while keeps its sanctity and charming. Carved from a whole piece of white jade, the sitting jade Buddha statue is translucent with a solemn expression, displaying the excellent skill and extraordinary art of Chinese people.

Yuyuan Garden has a lot of stories for it was severely damaged in the 19th century and was restored in 1961. This garden was first built in the 16th century by provincial governor, Pan Yunduan, in honor of his father who was the then government minister. It has many scenic courtyards decorated with baroque rockery, pools, and flora that are all connected by corridors and passageways. The delicate design and exquisite layout of the whole garden reveals a strong impression of 'garden in the garden, whole in the part.

Shanghai World Financial Center is a super tall skyscraper in Pudong New Area, Shanghai. It is a mixed use skyscraper which consists of offices, hotels, conference rooms, observation decks, and shopping malls on the ground floors. On 14 September 2007 the skyscraper was topped out at 492.0 meters (1,614.2 feet) and became the second tallest building in the world; as well as the tallest structure on mainland China, including Hong Kong.

The Bund ShanghaiThen it comes to the Bund, the showcase with the old buildings of colonial-era leftover along Huangpu River. The renowned waterfront district is the city's most famous landmark. The word BUND is of Anglo-India origin meaning embankment on the waterfront. It is also the popular site to enjoy the night view of the city.

Xintiandi is a car-free shopping, eating and entertainment area of Shanghai, China. It is composed of an area of restored traditional shikumen (stone gate) houses on narrow alleys, a modern shopping mall with a cinema complex, and some adjoining houses which now serve as book stores, cafes and restaurants. Most of the cafes and restaurants feature both indoor and outdoor seatings.

M50 Creative GardenThe Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Center is located on People Square, adjacent to the municipal government building. The Center is a six-story building, with two basement levels, which displays Shanghai's urban planning and development. Exhibitions include models of planned and recent developments, as well as Shanghai history. The centerpiece of the exhibition is a huge scale model of the city of Shanghai, showing all existing and approved buildings. Alongside the model is a small theatre room playing a video about the impression of Shanghai future, with notable locations including some of the Shanghai Expo 2010 pavilions.

M50 is the name of the complex that has become the Moganshan Road Art District in Shanghai. Formerly a set of dilapidated warehouses, the complex, just south of Shanghai Suzhou Creek, has been turned into the premier location for Shanghai modern art movement. You will find all kinds of galleries displaying everything from what has become a much-copied black and white portrait of Shanghai urban development to bizarre statuary made from scrap metal. Many visitors to Shanghai have left the district with a reasonably-priced piece of art tucked under their arm.

Huangpu River is the largest river in Shanghai, and with Suzhou Creek its branch. It is an average of 400 meters wide and 9 meters deep. Shanghai gets most of its drinking water from Huangpu, which thus plays an important part for the metropolis. It divides the city into two regions: Pudong (east) and Puxi (west). When the sun sets, Huangpu River is veiled in the glittery neon lights on its banks. Cruising on Huangpu River in the evening, visitors can experience its silence and landscape on both banks under the moonlight.
