2. Shanghai Postal Service Museum. The Shanghai Postal Services Museum offers more than just a history lesson on the Chinese postal system. (Whew!) The architecture of this grand 1930s building is quite impressive; especially the newly renovated atrium. But the real highlight of your visit will be the rooftop garden. This 75-year-old rooftop features one of the coolest clock towers in Shanghai and some of the most remarkable views of the city. You can see both sides of the Huangpu River: Suzhou Creek, Pudong, and the Bund.
3. Nanxiang Town. With a rich 1,500-year history, this tucked away gem offers the sparkle of a Ming Dynasty Garden and a reconstructed Buddhist Temple. Don’t leave without trying a tasty steamed dumpling!
4. Moganshan St. Art Galleries. This street was once lined with old factory workshops and warehouses, but today it is home to beautiful art galleries, exhibition rooms, and even theaters. It's an ideal place to meet modern, independent freelance artists and browse their work.
5. Qipu Road Market. Not sure what to bring home from your travels? This is the place to shop for souvenirs for all your friends and family! Everything is negotiable, giving this market the nickname, “Cheap Roead.” With dozens of small shops and stands to browse, you are sure to find something your friends will ooh and ah over for years to come.
