Don't miss out on any of the family fun Shanghai offers! Here are our picks for this week's events:
Pediatric Tuina Massage (Chinese Pediatric Massage)
If your child is a “fussy eater” you face daily challenges in giving your child sufficient nutrition. Not only can it be stressful to know that your child is not eating healthy, but a lot of time and money is also spent on preparing meals that never get eaten. Your child may actually have a poor appetite because of an imbalance in their digestive system, which is something that should be paid attention to. This class will teach you pediatric tuina massage methods that can help your child’s appetite. Reservation is necessary.
Shanghai Future Tour
Take a tour at the Urban Planning Exhibition Centre and explore how Shanghai and China is expected to develop in the coming years. Here, you can see the biggest scale of a city in the world, a panoramic virtual flight around Shanghai plus a speed boat simulator ride to the Yangshan Deep Water Port. Demographics, economy, pollution and future challenges are some of the topics you will learn about.
