  • Shanghai Landmark Tour

    Located in the center of Shanghai south of middle Huaihai road, Xin-Tian- Di has become an urban attraction which illustrates the historical and cultural legacy of the city. It is a fashionable pedestrian street composed of both Shikumen (Shanghai’s traditional residential buildings) and modern architecture. Nearby is the historical meeting site of the First National Congress of the Communist Party of China, considered to be the birthplace of Communist China.

    The Huangpu River is the mother river of Shanghai. The Bund, the famous and attractive waterfront along the west bank of the Huangpu River, has been regarded as the symbol of Shanghai for hundreds of years. There are twenty-six diverse buildings of different architectural styles, including Gothic, Baroque, Romanesque, Classical and Renaissance. The Bund is a must-see landmark site in Shanghai. The night scene is beautiful beyond description when lights are focused on the World Architecture Exhibition on the Bund which spreads along the 1000-meter-long embankment of the Huangpu River. The most bustling section includes the well-known urban landscape of Shanghai. Taking a boat cruise on the Huangpu River is also a traditional tourist attraction in Shanghai. Cruising the river allows a panoramic view of the urban landscape on both banks. The east bank of the river is the newer district of Shanghai, its financial and commercial hub, named Lujiazui. It is now one of Shanghai’s most charming places. It provides the most substantial cross-section of cosmopolitan Shanghai. Lujiazui boasts not only an “outdoor museum of global architecture,” but also frames the skyline of modern Shanghai with its modern skyscrapers.

  • Beijing

    API students will tour the capital of China, where they will be visiting such treasures as the Great Wall, Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Temple of Heaven, Olympic Center, and the Silk Market.
