    One of Shanghai’s most captivating attractions, Jade Buddha Temple is known for its impressive collection of statues and resident monks and can easily be explored on a 48-hour visit. Learn about its rich history, as it was originally built to house two jade statues brought in from Burma. Over time the collection grew and lured in travelers wanting to marvel at the jade buddhas. Start your visit in the Grand Hall to see the golden Buddhas that represent the incarnations of Buddha, then head to the Heavenly King Hall and Hall of the Reclining Buddha, which houses a Buddha statue carved from a single piece of white jade.

    Even if you’re in Shanghai for a short visit, the region is known as the “Venice of Shanghai”, or Zhujiajiao is only a short taxi ride from the center. Marvel at the picturesque waterways that are rich in history, as this ancient water town was popular during the Ming Dynasty as a commercial hub. Tour the numerous canals with bridges that lead you to charming narrow streets and alleyways lined with cafes and souvenir shops and visit historic landmarks, such as Kezhi Garden.

    While it might seem strange to put a train ride on a must-do activity for a 48-hour visit, the Shanghai Maglev is a unique transit option. It’s one of the fastest passenger trains in the world, traveling at about 270 miles per hour. Although it’s a quick journey, it will help you make the most of your trip, as passengers on this train are blasted between downtown and Pudong International Airport in about seven minutes. You’ll fly past 18 miles, plus there’s a museum at the Maglev Longyang Road Station dedicated to exhibiting the history of the train and engineering feats required to build it.
