Over the past few years the Chinese city of Shanghai has experienced an incredible boom in both business and tourism and has become a highly popular vacation spot among foreign tourists, all of them eager to experience the fast pace and sophisticated nightlife which characterises this sprawling metropolis. If you want to sample Shanghai’s many delights for yourself book a Shanghai boutique hotel with HotelTravel.com.

In the Huangpu area, offering easy access to the lights and glamour of the Bund, you will find The Langham Yangtze Boutique Hotel which epitomises lavish 5 star accommodation and is popular with HotelTravel.com customers. In Xuhui, in the elegant setting of the Former French Concession, the Shanghai Imperial Palace Club Hotel is a 5 star hotel which gives you a flavour of the colonial grandeur of Old Shanghai and is one of the finest boutique hotels in the city. Finally, in Luwan, the Mansion Hotel Shanghai provides sumptuous 5 star accommodation with a unique heritage slant, opening a window into the city’s past while providing you with stylish eateries and spacious well-appointed guest rooms.

There are countless fascinating places to visit and explore in Shanghai, some more obscure than others. For a charming shopping and dining experience delve into the warren of boutiques, stalls and restaurants that make up Tianzifang arts enclave and purchase everything from colourful shoulder bags to embroidered traditional dresses and Tibetan jewellery. Finish off with a signature Kommunist coffee and a slice of cake at Kommune café or stop off at one of the many coffee houses-slash-bars for a cold bottle of beer to beat the rising summer heat.

To savour some of the chic style of the Bund, head to M on the Bund and enjoy a round of cocktails in the Glamour Bar or even book a highly popular M on the Bund brunch and, in between courses, wander out onto the terrace to enjoy sweeping views over the river and some of Shanghai’s most iconic buildings.

If you want to escape the bustling streets and skyscrapers for a while take a scenic stroll in one of the city’s spacious green parks, such as Century Park in Pudong or Gongqing Forest Park, which offers horse riding, rock climbing and zip-lining as well as the chance to reconnect with green open spaces.
