Is it the first time for both of you to Shanghai? One day Essence city tour would be necessary; they can be Oriental Pearl TV Tower, River Cruise, Urban Planning Exhibition, Shanghai Museum, Yu Garden and the Bund. Also there are many great water towns nearby (1-2 hours drive), Zhujiajiao, Zhouzhuang, Xitang, Wuzhen. If you would like to take nice photos in the evening or early morning time, you may consider staying overnight there for one night to enjoy the peaceful time. Also, Suzhou, called the Oriental Venice" is just 30-60 minutes by fast train, you can easily take one day side tour visit the exquisite gardens.
Wish you a nice journey,
