Whichever nickname you prefer "Paris of the Orient" or "Pearl of China" Shanghai captures the essence of new China as well as its centuries of history and culture. Your tour begins with Jade Buddha Temple. It was built during the Guangxu period of the Qing Dynasty A.D. 1875-1909 with its priceless collection of jade statues from Burma. The construction of the temple is in the magnificent architectural style of the Song Dynasty. There are monks currently living in the Temple and the Temple houses the Shanghai Buddhist Institute. Next stop is Fresh Water Pearl Gallery. We may see the process of pearl cultivation. One lucky participant will be presented with a single pearl from a mussel. People Square is a spectacular space in the heart of the city. It is a vast green area including plants and trees and surrounded by great buildings on all sides where you may feed the lovely doves to pray for the world peace.
