How To Use This E-Book

This Explore Guide has been produced by the editors of Insight Guides, whose books have set the standard for visual travel guides since 1970. With top- quality photography and authoritative recommendations, these guidebooks bring you the very best routes and itineraries in the world’s most exciting destinations.
Best Routes
The routes in this book provide something to suit all budgets, tastes and trip lengths. As well as covering the destination’s many classic attractions, the itineraries track lesser-known sights, and there are also ex cursions for those who want to extend their visit outside the city. The routes embrace a range of interests, so whether you are an art fan, a gourmet, a history buff or have kids to entertain, you will find an option to suit.
We recommend reading the whole of a route before setting out. This should help you to familiarise yourself with it and enable you to plan where to stop for refreshments – options are shown in the ‘Food and Drink’ box at the end of each tour.
Introduction
The routes are set in context by this introductory section, giving an overview of the destination to set the scene, plus background information on food and drink, shopping and more, while a succinct history timeline highlights the key events over the centuries.
Directory
Also supporting the routes is a Directory chapter, with a clearly organised A–Z of practical information, our pick of where to stay while you are there and select restaurant listings; these eateries complement the more low-key cafés and restaurants that feature within the routes and are intended to offer a wider choice for evening dining. Also included here are some nightlife listings, plus a handy language guide and our recommendations for books and films about the destination.
Getting around the e-book
In the Table of Contents and throughout this e-book you will see hyperlinked references. Just tap a hyperlink once to skip to the section you would like to read. Practical information and listings are also hyperlinked, so as long as you have an external connection to the internet, you can tap a link to go directly to the website for more information.
Maps
All key attractions and sights mentioned in the text are numbered and cross-referenced to high-quality maps. Wherever you see the reference [map] just tap this to go straight to the related map. You can also double-tap any map for a zoom view.
Images
You’ll find lots of beautiful high-resolution images that capture the essence of the destination. Simply double-tap on an image to see it full-screen.

Recommended Routes For...




Architecture
Shanghai is a city with a fabulous range of architecture, from wonderful Art Deco ( routes 5 and 6 ) to lane houses ( route 6 ) and dramatic modern skyscrapers ( route 11 ).
Ryan Pyle/Apa Publications



Art enthusiasts
The main draw is the inspirational M50 Art District ( route 9 ). For a more systematic viewing, art fans will want to see the Power Station of Art and the China Art Palace ( route 11 ), which showcase the country’s high-profile modern-art scene.
Ryan Pyle/Apa Publications



Children
Across the river from the city centre, the Pudong district ( route 11 ) has a cluster of child-friendly attractions. Kids will also enjoy trips out of town to the gardens of Suzhou ( route 14 ) and the beautiful ‘water town’ of Tongli ( route 13 ).
Ryan Pyle/Apa Publications



Food and drink
There is a vast range to choose from in what is one of the world’s great culinary centres. Try authentic local food in the Old City ( route 5 ), or refined international dining on the Bund ( route 1 ).
David Shen Kai/Apa Publications



Museums
The Shanghai Museum on People’s Square ( route 3 ) is a great place to learn about China’s long history, while the Jewish Refugees Museum ( route 8 ) is well worth going out of your way to see.
