Creative and charming. The apartment is crammed with eclectic, colorful and fun artworks. The vibe is bright and elegant with many items collected by the owners during their travels. The owners say: “We love our home and have taken great care to select everything that is in it. We will do the same for any place we stay.” We love the bookshelves in the living room that form a vibrant backdrop to the room, the bold and exotic Moorish-style tiled patio in the tropical garden, not forgetting the superb location that is ideal for exploring this fascinating and ever-changing city.

Step into the future

Shanghai looks like the city of the future: glittering skyscrapers, a magnetic levitating airport train, and acrobats that can do the impossible, all laid on for your amusement. It’s the sight of a true family adventure - walking along The Bund and admiring the architecture, visiting exceptional toy stores and viewing the city like the birds do, from the 88th floor of the Jin Mao Tower. There are gentle adventures to be had too, from eating hand-pulled noodles from street vendors to taking river cruises down the Huang Pu River and meeting Giant Pandas at the zoo. Hone your chopstick skills before you touch down.
