Conveniently situated on one of Shanghai’s important streets, in China’s financial and commercial hub, Le Royal Méridien Shanghai is an ideal gateway to discover this fascinating city. Experience a stimulating juxtaposition of ancient and modern culture in an inspiring setting. A recreational area and shopping paradise, Nanjing Road East is laden with hundreds of restaurants, bars, and stylish boutiques selling everything from designer clothing to Chinese herbal medicine, and arts and crafts. Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport (SHA) is 15 kilometres away and Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) can be reached by car in 40 minutes.

Unlock Shanghai’s major landmarks starting at People’s Square and People’s Park. Both are just a few steps away from our hotel. The Bund is also within walking distance. A symbol of Shanghai since the 1920s, take a wonderful stroll along the Huangpu River and marvel at the sprawling skyline. Appreciate the breathtaking views at the top of the Oriental Pearl Tower, Asia’s tallest TV tower and the third highest in the world. Inspiring panoramas can also be found on the 100th-floor observation deck of the Shanghai World Financial Center (SWFC), one of the world’s tallest buildings.

Engage in other cultural and historical nearby attractions including the 400-year old Yu Garden and Bazaar in the Old Town, the tranquil Jade Buddha Temple, and the Jing’ an Temple. Peruse ancient Chinese art and 120,000 precious relics at the Shanghai Museum. More history awaits at the China National Museum at the Shanghai World Expo. Divided into two parts, it fully embodies China’s culture and history. Meanwhile, the Shanghai Science and Technology Museum offers a unique experience under its “Nature, People, and Science” theme. The storied pedestrian street of Xintiandi is lined with renovated old stone gatehouses called shikumen, and the historic and fashionable French Concession, and the artsy area of Tianzifang are equally stimulating.

Gourmands will delight in Shanghai’s world-famous soup dumplings. Called xiao long bao, they traditionally have 18 folds and are filled with pork, seafood, or vegetables.
