Packed with shiny towers and totems of contemporary consumerism, Shanghai is an unashamedly modern metropolis. Although you might not think it from the sci-fi skyline, the city retains room for its secret traditions. To get a unique handle on the city, guests can pilot a vintage bicycle for a truly diverse and interactive immersion into the local culture. Following unheralded routes and utilising the knowledge of Shanghai experts, guests can explore a number of themes during the course of a half-day ride. These include history and architecture, most prominent in areas such as the French concession where tree-shaded lanes are lined by historic buildings. Chinese culture is at the forefront in Fuxing Park, which teems with dancers and tai chi masters and offers scope for guests to try the ancient art of water calligraphy. Also prominent in Shanghai is food and guests will round off their ride by sampling some of the famous specialties of the city.
