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.
Shop till you drop at Nanjing Lu (Nanjing Road) and Shanghai Propaganda Poster Art Centre. Get some historical perspective at The Bund (Wai Tan) and Zhujiajiao Ancient Town. Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Shanghai Museum (Shanghai Bowuguan), take in panoramic vistas at Shanghai World Financial Center, admire the landmark architecture of Oriental Pearl Tower (Dongfang Mingzhu), and stop by Xintiandi.

One of east Asia's major cultural and financial centers, Seoul boasts five World Heritage Sites and a huge selection of museums, temples, shrines, palaces, parks, gardens, and glass-and-steel skyscrapers.
You've now added Myeong-Dong Tourist Information Center to your itinerary. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Myeongdong Shopping Street and Dongdaemun Market. Your inner history buff will appreciate Gyeongbokgung Palace and Cheonggyecheon Stream. And it doesn't end there: admire the striking features of Changdeokgung Palace, wander the streets of Bukchon Hanok Village, visit Insadong, and explore the world behind art at National Folk Museum of Korea.

Traveling by flight from Shanghai to Seoul takes 5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of train, ferry, and subway; or do a combination of car and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Shanghai to Seoul. When traveling from Shanghai in October, plan for a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Seoul: temperatures range from 22°C by day to 21°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Kyoto.
