Their itinerary was packed with attractions, shopping, and food tasting.  They visited the Mandarin Yuyuan Garden, People’s Square, Tongrentang, and Huai Hai Road.  They also took pleasure in the sights at The Bund where they saw Shanghai’s waterfront of historical and modern buildings and wharves.  The group’s interest was heightened when they visited the historical sights of Shanghai Old Town, where they were drawn to the buildings and teahouses’ traditional and intricate architecture. The agents also took part in a unique experience, taking a gondola ride along the “Venice of the East’s” waterways at the Zhouzhuang Water Villages. However, the agents’ sight-seeing was not limited to Shanghai’s historical beauties; the city’s more modern attractions also made an impression. A thrilling visit to the 1,535 ft-high Oriental Pearl TV Tower suspended the agents on the 295ft glass flooring of the Space City deck above Shanghai’s busy streets. The agents left the Era Show amazed, where they witnessed performances of cultural stunts and high-tech circus acrobatics.   The group ensured that they did not leave China empty-handed, as they engaged in a  shopping spree at the Kitchenwares Store, Silk and Pearl shops, and splurged on wares on Nanjing Road, the world’s busiest shopping street boasting 58 buildings of Shanghai fashion and internationally known brands. The icing on the cake came with a 300 kph Maglev Train ride that took only eight minutes to get to Pudong and spreads of yummy and famous Shanghainese treats such as Xiao Long Bao, Pata Tim, Roasted Chicken, and other delectable Dim Sum offerings.

Go at the Shanghai Min Restaurant at Xian Tiang Di during the last night in Shanghai.Many joyful moments were captured in photos and videos that both agents and Paramount officers took during the trip, making the trip to Shanghai an impossible one to forget. 

After the trip came to an end; the experience and stories fueled the drive, enthusiasm and expectations of the life agents, and motivated new agents to join the Paramount family.
