  • The church is currently under construction but the mass itself is very nice. With a beautiful choir that make it even better experienced.
  • This is a beautiful Cathedral with its two towers facing the street. Make sure you go inside as well.
  • Was unlucky to come during the renovation time, and in a late evening. Managed to see only the chapel inside the Rev's chaplaincy. Wish i would travel back to this place on another day and see the church in its full glory, but sad that i'm thousands of miles away....!
  • Came here with my mother-in-law for mass. Great service and all but kept getting distracted by the tourists coming in and gawking. Go take your wedding picture somewhere else!
  • Great Architecture and very accessible within Shanghai City Proper.

Where to stay in Shanghai

As one of China's top commercial cities and tourist destinations, Shanghai offers accommodations that range from backpacker-friendly haunts to five-star hotels in futuristic skyscrapers. Few world cities can rival Shanghai in terms of room variety, services, and prices, and all types of travelers can easily find suitable options based on their preference and budget limitations. Puxi and Pudong remain probably the best options for most foreign visitors, as these areas offer both modern hotels packed with amenities and older establishments loaded with traditional charm.
