Young artists and designers have turned Shanghai into China’s capital of cool, but art history lovers will also be intrigued here.

Where to Stay // JIA Shanghai
Rooms at this boutique hotel are works of art in themselves: All 55 come kitted out with custom furnishing and pieces by local artists.

Morning // Shanghai Museum
See China’s decorative past at this museum holding 120,000 works of art, including calligraphy scrolls, jade statues and Ming dynasty furniture.

Lunch // Museum of Contemporary Art
After exploring the works at this museum, visit its evolving Art Lab Restaurant and dine on creative fusion dishes in a high-design setting. 

Afternoon // M50
Don’t miss this district of former warehouses-turned-galleries along the Suzhou Creek—it’s ground zero for Shanghai’s flourishing arts scene. 

Dinner // Jade on 36
It’s hard to say who is the headliner here: the glam, Adam Tihany-designed dining room on the Pudong Shangri-La’s 36th floor or the picture-perfect creations from chef Fabrice Giraud.
