The day begins with a pampering massage at the hotel’s spa. The masseuse’s expert techniques invigorate your mind and body. You are now in excellent shape to begin exploring this European-inspired coastal city.
Zhongshan Road, just minutes away from the hotel, marks your first stop. You marvel at the hundreds of shops and put your bargaining skills to the test, selecting a few memorabilia to treasure. At the beach in the cool afternoon, you contemplate the deep blue horizon amidst merrymaking families and young couples.
Back at the hotel, you head to Shang Palace –Shangri-La’s signature restaurant – for dinner. The restaurant represents elegance with a dash of panache and is matched by outstanding service. With a menu as majestic as the hotel itself, you enjoy a delicate meal handcrafted for the discerning few.
The day has been enchanting, and you return to the unsurpassed comforts of your room. Outside the window, the dazzling spectacle of mountains in the distance takes you on a wondrous journey into the timeless realm of a classical Chinese painting. You smile in contentment as you drift off to sleep.
