Book flights to Shanghai from Manchester and prepare to immerse yourself in a true adventure. Officially the world's busiest city, Shanghai isn't best known as a place to relax and rejuvenate - but an early morning trip to the beautiful YuYuan Chinese Gardens will have your body and soul believing otherwise.
Once you're feeling rested, get your senses kicked into Shanghai time with a trip to the three-storey Tianshan Tea Market - your morning cuppa will never be the same again - then throw yourself into Shanghai's intoxicating cosmopolitan culture. From chic bars to street food, luxury boutiques to traditional market places, every side of Shanghai life is waiting to be explored - do it like a local by bike, or reach higher in the Jinamao tower and enjoy a cocktail overlooking the city in one of the world's tallest structures. Explore this fascinating city, with daily flights from Manchester to Shanghai via London, with Virgin Atlantic.
