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: an international buffet spread at Café Liang and mezzanine, succulent steak at The 1515 West, Chophouse & Bar or South-Eastern Chinese cuisine at Summer Palace.
After a delicious meal, you head to the Horizon Club Lounge on the 55th floor to wind down. There is a spectacular view of Shanghai through floor-to-ceiling windows. In your comfortable room, you prepare for bed while outside the city glitters.
