Attractions near the Holiday Inn Downtown
Stepping back in time
If you only visit one museum on your trip to this vibrant city, the Shanghai Museum is definitely one to pick, housing more than one million treasures. Primarily a museum of ancient Chinese art, the permanent collection features artefacts from a broad range of categories including bronze, ceramics, calligraphy, furniture, coins and jade. The Museum also hosts rotating exhibitions that showcase the ancient cultures of other empires.
There’s a cafe for those who feel a little peckish, but the real food highlight is located on the second floor, where you can find an authentic teahouse that maintains traditional Chinese architectural style.
Exploring ancient beauty
You can take in the beauty of a classic temple located just five minutes’ drive from the hotel. The Jade Buddha Temple is a popular spot for tourists and locals, who visit to pray and take traditional classes.
The Temple and surrounding area are charming, but there's more to see inside: two stunning statues of Buddha expertly carved from a single piece of white jade. There is also a fascinating series of artefacts to see at the nearby Jade Buddha Tower, which houses around 7,000 sutras (ancient writings).
