Full description
This one-day bike tour aims to show you the classic sights of Shanghai at a leisurely pace. You will casually pedal through a number of "must-see" attractions and other locations you may miss on your own. The tour runs rain or shine and will be in the company of a local guide who will take you along streets such as the Taikang Road and to the antique market of Dongtai Road. Discover China’s electric city as it wakes from its revolutionary doldrums and sets the world on fire. You will cycle the city, taking in attractions such as the magnificent Shanghai Museum, where you can uncover 5,000 years of Chinese history, and the Taikang Road, set in a series of traditional longtang alleyways. You will explore old and new streets, stopping to enjoy a typical Chinese lunch and allowing some time to explore the shops. You will pause at People’s Square and visit Cite Bourgogne to see the stone houses of the Shi Ku Men style. Discover why Shanghai used to be called the “Paris of the Orient” and learn about its exotic past of opium dens and cotton production. You will be witness to a city coming alive in the 21st-Century with an energetic building program and streets that teem with life. But you will take it all at a human pace, and on that classic mode of Chinese transport, the humble bicycle.

    Deep insight into Shanghai life today and yesterday

    Ellen is a great guide. Driving through the smallest ways in the old city. And not only the frontsides, but also the backyard of the houses, where the people live. Answering every question with her vast knowledge. This gave us exactly, what we were looking for. A nontouristical view. Paired with a lot of humor made it a wonderful day for us as well as our 14year old Son. Thank you very much and go on this way.

    Super Tour um einen Einblick in den Alltag der Menschen zu bekommen.

    Wir hatten das Glück, dass wir auf der Tour mit unserem Guide Ellen alleine unterwegs waren. Zunächst hat sie uns nach unseren Interessen und "Vorkenntnissen" gefragt und auf dieser Basis haben wir dann gemeinsam eine Route vereinbart. Neben dem reinen Sightseeing haben wir viele interessante Infos zur Geschichte und der rasanten Entwicklung der Stadt bekommen und wie sich dadurch auch das Leben der Menschen verändert hat. Als Tourist ohne Begleitung durch einen Local würde man diese Einblicke sicher nicht bekommen. Noch eine Anmerkung zum Thema Fahrradfahren in Shanghai: Überhaupt kein Problem! Unsere Räder waren modern und gut in Schuss. Der Verkehr ist zwar manchmal recht chaotisch, aber wenn man sich an die Anweisungen des Tour Guides und die eigenen Augen offen hält, kann eigentlich nichts passieren. Uns hat es viel Spaß gemacht!
