YuYuan Gardens & The Old City
Shanghai Postal Museum
Housed in the old General Post Office built in the 1920s, the interior is beautiful - it's still a functioning post office. Plus it has a roof garden with a great view of The Bund and Pudong.

The Bund and Sightseeing Tunnel
The Bund, also called Zhongshan Road, alongside Huangpu River was once the financial centre of the Far East. Since 1920, it has been considered the city's symbol and is often referred to as "the museum of buildings", as many different styles of European buildings can be found here. The street is home to most of the top restaurants and brand name stores and the Shanghai Gallery of Art.  
A tramcar runs on a track under the river through a sightseeing tunnel. To the background music you are thrilled with colorful lightbeams, waving puppets and a disappearing movie screen.
On the opposite side of Huangpu river are the modern skyscrapers and the new financial district of Pudong. Most buildings are lit at night providing a stunning view from the Bund.

The Chinese Garden in Huashan Hospital
On the corner of Wulumuqi and Huashan Roads is this former private garden of a wealthy Shanghainese family. Now housed in the grounds of a hospital, the beautiful old Chinese garden (think bridges, lakes and rocks) is full of hospital patients wandering around in pajamas, often pushing around their drips – it’s a surreal sight!

Xin Tian Di
This is a fashionable pedestrian street (car-free) in the centre of Shanghai City and has become an urban tourist attraction holding the historical and cultural legacies of the city. It is composed of Shikumen and modern architecture style, which retains the antique walls, tiles, and exterior of the Shikumen housing of old Shanghai. However, its interior embodies a totally different world of international gallery, bars and cafes, boutiques or theme restaurants, and all of that will give you the taste both of Shanghai in the 1920's and the sonic modern lifestyle of urbanites of the 21st century.

Dongtai Lu Antiques Market
Shanghai's answer to Panjiayuan. "Antiques" market open every day, none of the pieces for sale are actual antiques and it's smaller than Panjiayuan but there are a few interesting shops/stalls including the old guy that restores 1930s radio sets and telephones.
