To celebrate their latest sale and competition, Cathay Pacific has shared its top three cultural and historical highlights of the dynamic Chinese metropolis.

- The Bund  -  One of the most recognisable symbols of the pride of Shanghai, The Bund is a mile-long waterfront boardwalk that borders the Huangpu River. A must-see for history lovers and photography enthusiasts, the architectural landmarks encompass Gothic, baroque and Neoclassical styles, showcasing the century-long charm of the city. 

- Yu Garden  -  Bask in the tranquillity of scenic Yu Garden with its exquisite sculptures, elaborate pavilions, sparkling pools, zigzag bridges and impressive rockeries. Built during the Ming Dynasty, the garden is unique in its design and blossoms with fragrant florals in the Spring and Summer seasons. Sitting adjacent is the humming Yuyuan Bazaar and its bountiful restaurants, tea houses and shops.

- Shanghai Tower  -  Experience a panoramic view of the city atop China’s tallest skyscraper. Boasting the world’s highest observation deck at 561m, Shanghai Tower’s slick and distinctive helix shape has been constructed according the recent innovations in skyscraper design. Hitch a ride on the world’s fastest elevator to visit the spiral-shaped tower’s various entertainment venues, shops and public atriums.
