Shanghai is abuzz with a festive atmosphere and more than ready to celebrate the holiday season. In addition to Shanghai’s regular iconic tourist attractions, this winter brings additional holiday activities and offerings, including the following:
Merry KissMas at Shanghai Xintiandi: The renowned Xintiandi section of Shanghai will be aglow with Christmas-themed art installations, including a special lighting installation that is activated by kisses from people viewing it. Xintiandi will also host a series of exciting performances, from puppet shows to stilt walkers to dance performances.
