The charm of Shanghai is accentuated in the city’s upscale Jing An district, where glamorous malls and skyscrapers stand alongside quaint shops and lane houses.
Jing An Shangri-La, West Shanghai is central to the 450,000 square-metre Jing An Kerry Centre, which integrates prime hotel, retail, office and residential space overlooking a beautifully landscaped piazza.
Shangri-La provides a respite from the city. After an easy check-in, you consider your options for dinner – Cafe Liang for all-day dining or an international buffet, TSURU Japanese Restaurant for traditional Japanese Kaiseki cuisine, Summer Palace for authentic Cantonese cuisine, 1515 WEST Chophouse & Bar for one of the best steaks in Shanghai, or modern Mediterranean dining at Calypso Restaurant & Bar.
After a delicious meal, you head to the Horizon Club Lounge on the 55th floor to wind down. You enjoy a spectacular view of Shanghai through floor-to-ceiling windows. Later, you prepare for bed in your comfortable room while the city glitters outside.
