To the first time traveler visiting Shanghai, it may seem like there isn’t much to see except skyscrapers and gardens. A deeper look into Shanghai can find great activities to enjoy with your partner or your family. So instead of booking a short two-day stay add a few days more!
The Shanghai Ocean Aquarium
A great indoor activity for the whole family. The aquarium is known for its 120-meter tunnel filled with swimming sea life. A fun time for children of all ages as they walk through the tunnel and experience watching the marine life swim by.

Shanghai Wild Animal Park
This park is fun for both adults and kids. Hop on the bus for a tour so you can see the bears playing in the grass or the tigers running through the fields. After you hop off the bus, you can walk around the park and see pandas and other wonderful animals. We recommend arriving there in the morning to avoid the crowds.
Open from 8 am to 5 pm (check times as they are seasonal)
