You will have the chance to try some shengjian (fried plain buns) in a Michelin-starred restaurant, and experience the most popular way to order takeout in China.

Board a public ferry with the locals, cross the Huangpu River to Shanghai's Pudong New Area, and take the fastest elevator in the world to the top of the city in the Shanghai Tower.

Day 3Shanghai Disneyland

This day is for family fun! We know people don't like time limitations in Shanghai Disneyland so, to guarantee the best experience, we haven't arranged a private transfer on this day. You can have fun in Shanghai Disneyland from the morning until the evening.

Your personal tour guide will help you to reserve a taxi in advance. If you prefer, you can also try the metro or a bus as the public transportation is very convenient.
