SHANGHAI

Your PRIVATE GUIDED TOUR starts at the YU YUAN GARDENS, dating back to the Ming Dynasty. Then, stroll along the Bund, the city’s riverfront boulevard lined with historic buildings, housing, banks, and trade houses. For lunch, stop at a local restaurant featuring XIAOLONGBAO, Shanghai’s most famous dish. These tasty soup dumplings are handmade with at least 18 intricate folds to close the top. The broth is the star so, to avoid wasting a single drop, gently pick up the dumpling, dip in sauce, and transfer to a Chinese soup spoon. Next, make a small hole to release the steam and allow the broth to cool. After it cools, sip up the broth and then swallow the dumpling. The remainder of the day is at your leisure.

Shanghai

Meet one of your Local Hosts in ShanghaiMonograms provides travelers access to a Local Host®, so you will have someone on hand to answer those vacation questions pertaining to Shanghai. No waiting in line at the concierge desk or trying to ask your waitress at breakfast directions to the shopping district. Simply ask your Local Host® about Shanghai and you'll be on your way in no time. Plus, your Local Host® will share local Shanghai insights and share suggestions for getting off the beaten path, leaving you more time to create lasting vacation memories that are yours alone.

Meet a Local Host®

My name is Amy Zhang and I have worked as a Local Host since I graduated from university where I majored in tourism management. I love what I do because I get to learn from my guests while sharing my knowledge and sense of humor. As a native Shanghainese I will do all I can to provide you with a fascinating stay.

Jade Buddha Temple

Located in the western part of Shanghai the famous Jade Buddha Temple makes for an interesting visit. Built between 1918 and 1928, this temple is one of the city’s few active Buddhist monasteries. Here you can see two stunning jade Buddha statues that were brought from Burma in 1882 by a monk named Huigen.

Xin Tiandi

This huge space features a multitude of food and beverage, retail, entertainment, recreational, and residential facilities in restored “shikumen” houses, a form of traditional and unique architecture only found in Shanghai. It is a nice place to wander around for a bit.

Nanjing Road

Nanjing road was one of the first commercial streets that appeared in Shanghai after the city opened as a port to foreign trade about 150 years ago. For decades, it was one of the country’s largest commercial hubs. In the 1930s, Nanjing road claimed the reputation as the retail center in China, gathering almost all the most famous shops, many of which were established in the Qing Dynasty. Today, these century-old businesses continue to draw throngs of customers and despite the ups and downs in Shanghai’s history, Nanjing Road has not lost the reputation as China’s most bustling shopping street.

Tianzifang

This area offers a wide variety of shops from cafes, bars and restaurants to art galleries, craft stores, and studios. What makes this area unique is that it doesn’t not look or feel like a shopping mall area. Tianzifang preserves its distinctly residential feel - with electric cables strung overhead and air-conditioning units perched to the outside of buildings.

Hong Kong

Monograms provides travelers access to a Local Host®, so you will have someone on hand to answer those vacation questions pertaining to Hong Kong. No waiting in line at the concierge desk or trying to ask your waitress at breakfast directions to the shopping district. Simply ask your Local Host® about Hong Kong and you'll be on your way in no time. Plus, your Local Host® will share local Hong Kong insights and share suggestions for getting off the beaten path, leaving you more time to create lasting vacation memories that are yours alone.

Meet a Local Host®

Hi, I'm Alan Hui and as a native of Hong Kong, I have been showing this vibrant city to people from all over the world since 1984. I love reading and good food, which is perfect for a city that has been known for years as “A Gourmet Paradise.”

Temple of Ten Thousand Buddha’s

The name isn’t entirely accurate—there are closer to 13,000 Buddha statues in the temple, as well as countless, larger ones lining the steps to the temple. They come in all shapes, sizes, and sorts—with one even riding a giant blue dog. There’s also a lovely 9-story pagoda beside the temple.

Luk Yu Tea House

A dim sum restaurant serves a wide variety—often dozens—of small dishes and Luk Yu Tea House is perhaps the best place to dive in. Dumplings of all sorts are a typical dim sum offering, as are rice rolls, steamed meatballs and vegetables, spring rolls, and sweets. Try as many types as your appetite will allow, including something unusual.

Hong Kong Heritage Museum

The largest museum in the city, this is a wonderful place to learn about the cultural history of Hong Kong and China. Visitor favorites include the colorful costumes of the Cantonese Opera Heritage Hall and the sculptures and early art of the T. T. Tsui Gallery.

Yuen Po Street Bird Garden

The gathering place for all things bird, you don’t have to be an ornithologist to enjoy a look around the Yuen Po Street Bird Garden. There are dozens of markets selling birds, cages of mahogany and teak, and bird feed. You can watch as purveyors use chopsticks to feed crickets and nectar to their birds. Or sit back and listen to the songs from the birds brought by the proud owners who are there just to hang out.

Kowloon Walled City Park

Immerse yourself in this park to get a piece of history and a taste of modern life at the same time. Once an imperial walled city, Kowloon contains many relics from those days as well as attractive gardens and pavilions in its eight sections. Rise early and you might get to see city elders practicing tai chi here.

Tsim Sha Tsui Waterfront

There are numerous museums in the district, as well as Hong Kong’s famous Clock Tower, but the real reason to venture here is to see the city skyline. The lights and skyscrapers are on full display from Tsim Sha Tsui. As a bonus, the city puts on a laser-light show each night at 8 pm.

Lan Kwai Fong

Looking for an evening full of entertainment? Head over to Lan Kwai Fong, one of Hong Kong’s most popular nightlife hot spots and home to over 100 restaurants, bars, clubs and shops. Depending on the time of year you visit, you may come across one of their carnivals or major festival celebrations.

Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree

The name is a bit misleading, as people may no longer throw their “wish-paper” streamers into the tree. However, the home of the Lam Tsuen tree is still popular due to its history of inspiring people to literally lay out their dreams. You can now buy wish papers from vendors, write on them, and tie them to a rack at the site. There are also fortune-tellers nearby.

Temple Street Night Market

This bustling night market is open from 4 pm to midnight daily. Here you can find all types of bargains including casual clothes and curios. You'll also often see fortune-tellers and professional Chinese chess players. The market really picks up after 7 pm.

Prices are per person, based on double room occupancy. For singles traveling alone, a supplement will be quoted at the time of booking. Single rooms are available at a supplement; triple rooms are available at a reduction.

2019 departures are subject to itinerary and price modifications. Details will be available in August 2018.
