Accommodation in Shanghai
Luxury on The Bund
Arguably the most famous attraction in Shanghai is The Bund, a two-kilometre stretch of stunning buildings lining the banks of Huangpu River that showcase various architectural styles including Gothic, Baroque, Art Deco and Romanesque. Along the shores stands a collection of lavish hotels famous for their spectacular views, including the exclusive Peninsular Shanghai, a glamorous retreat boasting an open-air rooftop bar with panoramic vistas.
The multi-award winning Waldorf Astoria on the Bund is sure to impress with its spectacular neo-classical architecture and unparalleled luxury, while Hotel Indigo On The Bund also delivers an outstanding experience with individually-styled rooms and fine-dining restaurants.
Convenience and attractions in Pudong
Making up the dazzling Shanghai skyline is the district of Pudong, a bustling metropolis of towering skyscrapers and popular attractions. Sprawled across 140 hectares is the impressive Century Park, set within the heart of Padong. You can stay mere steps from this popular attraction at the convenient and upmarket Kerry Hotel Pudong Shanghai or the Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel Shanghai.
Closer to the river stands the fascinating Shanghai History Museum and Shanghai Ocean Aquarium, which have a few hotels nearby including the lavish Ritz Carlton Shanghai and the more affordable Oriental Riverside Hotel.
Elegance in the French Concession
Known for its picturesque tree-lined streets, historic villas and boutique shopping, the French Concession is a highly sought-after neighbourhood that has retained classic elements of its Parisian history. Many of the hotels capture the old Shanghai period including the boutique Mansion Hotel, a beautifully-restored heritage landmark presenting elegant rooms and a rooftop restaurant overlooking the district.
Housed within an enchanting Norwegian-style mansion is Henshan Moller Villa Hotel, offering a fairy-tale escape with dreamy guest rooms, elegant dining venues and beautiful gardens. Taiyuan Villa delivers a similar experience with its charming British Colonial architecture and deluxe facilities.
