What to do in Huangpu

Huangpu Hotels

Washing through the city centre, the Huangpu River splits Shanghai in two. On one side, there’s the colossal neck-craning skyscrapers of Pudong, once a barren wasteland and now Shanghai’s big business homeland. On the other, the historic city centre, brimming with colonial architecture, chic restaurants, malls and hotels, and flashing neon lights: this is Huangpu district. A place to immerse yourself in the urban thrum, bump shoulders with financial bigwigs, and enjoy vintage traditions nestled among the modern-day metropolis.

Things to see

From colonial buildings to mammoth malls, renowned museums and top-notch dining spots, it’s hard to know where to begin in Huangpu. Take a stroll along the Bund, Shanghai’s original colonial-era financial centre. This riverside curve of grand neoclassical buildings was once home to big banks and big business. These days it’s a playground of swanky bars, exclusive shops and high-end restaurants. Close by, Nanjing Road hustles for your attention: a cacophony of neon lights, tea houses and thrumming department stores. If retail therapy’s not your thing, dash on through to People’s Square. Hemmed in by looming skyscrapers, this open space breathes fresh air into the city centre, and is dotted with noteworthy cultural spots, including Shanghai Museum and Shanghai Grand Theatre. For further serenity among the metropolis, seek out Shanghai’s French Concession, a tree-lined neighbourhood of Parisian-style boulevards, colonial mansions and pavement cafés.

Hotels in Huangpu

Shanghai’s hotels cater to all budgets and tastes. When you’re feeling flush, opt for one of the 4 or 5-star hotels in Huangpu District, complete with marble-clad reception areas, grand chandeliers sparkling from the ceilings, and sweeping stairways leading to floors of opulent suites. Business travellers may prefer to stay in a more low-key amenity-packed hotel with perks including free WiFi, free breakfast and meeting facilities. Despite the less glitzy finish, mid-range 3-star hotels provide pristine modern rooms decorated in a chic contemporary style. They’re perfect for families, while budget travellers will discover that cheap 2-star hotels, inns and hostels stretch funds much further.

Where to stay

To enjoy riverside views reaching across to the shimmering skyscrapers of Pudong, stay along the Bund. Here you’ll peruse designer stores, get dressed up for dinner in some of the city’s high-end restaurants, and sip on cocktails while rubbing shoulders with wealthy urbanites. Nearby Nanjing Road’s a hectic shopper’s paradise. Stay here and you’ll be thrust into Shanghai’s commercial hubbub. If you fancy immersing yourself in the city’s cultural gems, stay near People’s Square where it’s a short stroll to a number of top-notch museums, while the French Concession in Xuhui district evokes vintage European flair among its avenues, colonial homes, and magnolia-filled Yu Gardens.

How to get to Huangpu

Contrary to popular belief, Shanghai’s metro isn’t always choc-a-block with commuters and city workers. Avoid travelling by metro at rush hour, but the rest of the time it’s the easiest way to get around the city. You’ll find an array of stops across Huangpu District, including East Nanjing Road Station. If you’re arriving into Pudong International Airport, a hi-speed Maglev train will take you to Longyang Road Station where you can hop on the metro to Huangpu. Smaller Hongqiao International Airport is directly linked to the city via the metro. Alternatively arrange an airport transfer through your hotel.
