This five-star hotel is one of very few new buildings to be added to Shanghai’s historic Bund in the last 70 years, so you know it’s something special. The Peninsula Shanghai was unveiled in 2009, but its Art Deco design echoes a bygone era, with 235 retro-style suites and The Peninsula’s signature fleet of green Rolls-Royce Phantoms. Foodies will also love the five on-site restaurants, included two Michelin-star eateries.
