Things to do

With its fascinating blend of time-honoured tradition and innovative modernity, Shanghai has a plethora of family-friendly attractions that cater to a wide range of interests. Here are some top recommendations for your unforgettable adventure.

Zigzag through Shanghai's winding past and explore its diverse cultural heritage at the Shanghai Natural History Museum and the Shanghai Museum. Children will surely love the engaging exhibits and interactive displays, while parents will appreciate the wealth of knowledge, history and fascinating artefacts.

Next, marvel at the remarkable, sky-scaling architecture of the Shanghai Tower, the tallest building in China. The tower's impressive observation deck offersviews that will leave the whole family captivated. Young adventurers may also relish the tower's eco-friendly design and sustainability features. Don't forget to take a family photo to capture this memorable experience!

While in Shanghai, immerse your family in the vibrant, urban atmosphere of People's Square, a hub full of exciting activities, events and noteworthy landmarks. Indulge in some retail therapy, delight in the diverse food offerings, or simply stroll through the lively environment, soaking up the city's unique energy.

Finally, further afield from the bustling city centre, escape to the picturesque water towns and idyllic natural landscapes just waiting to be explored. Let your family unwind and connect with nature while creating cherished memories together. Whichever attractions you choose, Shanghai guarantees a family holiday as diverse and inspiring as the city itself.

When to visit

Shanghai offers a range of experiences for your family trip all year long. The ideal time to visit is during the beautiful spring (March to May) and the pleasant autumn (September to November). You'll enjoy both warm and mild temperatures during these seasons, perfect for sightseeing and outdoor activities.

Spring brings cherry blossom festivals in numerous parks, while autumn boasts colourful natural landscapes. If you happen to visit during the colder, drier winter months (December to February), don't worry! Shanghai still offers fascinating indoor attractions such as the Natural History Museum and the Old City God Temple. As always, we recommend planning your trip around your children's school holidays to avoid any unwanted surprises.
