Go to the Jade Buddha Temple
The Jade Buddha Temple is situated in the Anyuan Lu district of Shanghai. It’s home to statues that monk Huigen brought from Burma and includes the beautiful Hall of the Kings of Heaven. The hall features sculptures carved from jade that stand nearly two meters high.
Wander around Longhua Temple

The temple is still used for Shanghai’s regular Buddhist ceremonies and features five large halls you can explore. Keep an eye out for the Bell Tower that’s home to a two-meter tall bell from 1382.

The Best Time to Visit Shanghai
The best time to visit Shanghai is during fall. From October to November, the temperatures are mild, and it’s the season with the least amount of rain. If you’re planning your trip during the first week of October, you’ll need to book your Shanghai flight and accommodation package well in advance as it’s a popular time to visit the city. Another excellent time to travel to Shanghai is between April and May. The short spring season sees Shanghai turn into a blanket of cherry blossoms, but expect hotel rates to go up. There are numerous festivals and holidays that take place over those months. Peak travel season is between June and September, but the weather is not the greatest. There’s a high probability of typhoons in the late part of summer.
