W Insider Says...
Shanghai is a city of contrasts, and an ideal day in the city would incorporate racing from modern to traditional; experience street food and craft cocktails. It’s these captivating contrasts that give the city a sense of excitement that make it feel like a frontier town, always thrumming with electrifying energy.
An ideal day in Shanghai would have to include taking in the grandeur of The Bund and the ultra-modern Pudong skyline (from our WET® Deck, of course). But going east-ward from the Huangpu River, Shanghai quickly recedes into a more intimate scale, from the French Concession’s intimate, leafy streets to the restaurants and bars tucked discreetly in the shikumen houses of Xintiandi.
