With a nickname like the "Pearl of the Orient," it's not surprising Shanghai offers some of the most rewarding attractions and activities in the Far East.
Kids will enjoy The Bund (Wai Tan) and Oriental Pearl Tower (Dongfang Mingzhu). Step out of Shanghai to go to Suzhou and see Suzhou Garden Museum, which is approximately 1h 50 min away. Next up on the itinerary: admire the natural beauty at Yu Garden (Yuyuan), see the interesting displays at Shanghai Museum (Shanghai Bowuguan), walk around Century Park, and make an unforgettable trip to Shanghai Disneyland.

For traveler tips, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Shanghai online driving holiday planner.

Perth, Australia to Shanghai is an approximately 15-hour flight. When traveling from Perth in December, plan for colder days and a bit cooler nights in Shanghai: temperatures range from 13°C by day to 5°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Sun) early enough to travel to Taipei.

Situated in a basin between two mountain ranges, Taipei appeals to tourists with its blend of Asian cultures, living side by side amidst Japanese-era mansions and Taoist temples.
Family-friendly places like National Palace Museum and Taipei Children's Amusement Park will thrill your kids. Change things up with these side-trips from Taipei: Ruifang (Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street) & Jioufen Historical House), Leofoo Village Theme Park (in Guanxi) and YehLiu Geopark (in Wanli). The adventure continues: buy something for everyone on your list at Taipei 101, take in the dramatic scenery at Shifen Waterfall, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Taipei Zoo, and don't miss a visit to Lucky Art Crayon Factory.

Traveling by flight from Shanghai to Taipei takes 5.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of train, bus, ferry, and car. In January, Taipei is somewhat warmer than Shanghai - with highs of 22°C and lows of 16°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
