Welcome to China. Your MSC Cruise will take you to Shenzhen, in the province of Guangdong, not far from Hong Kong. Fifteen million people live and work in this 24-hour city, with its hot, humid summers and mild winters.
There are many places of interest and tourist attractions to explore in Shenzen, starting with an excursion to the OCT Loft Creative Culture Park. Here you can browse the many shops which offer the latest trends in fashion, design and of course art. Try a cold drip coffee at the Gee Coffee Roasters, which is inside the OCT park, or take a look round the OCAT, a former two-storey warehouse that houses temporary exhibits.

An excursion will take you to admire the art at the Dafen oil painting village. Located in the city district, for over twenty years this cluster of houses has been known for the work of thousands of artists specialised in reproducing copies of western works of art, also on commission. For example, if you want a wallet-sized Mona Lisa, you can buy your mini-reproduction of a Da Vinci at a reasonable price, then sit and admire it while sipping tea in one of the many cafes in the village.

There is also an excursion to the Windows of the World Theme Park, in the western part of the city, where you can see miniature reproductions of one hundred and thirty of the most famous monuments in the world, including the Eiffel Tower, the Pyramids, Sydney Opera House, Mount Rushmore, the Taj Mahal and the Palace of Versailles. A world tour in just a few hectares. There are also indoor ski slopes and a cable car.

A spectacular cityscape
As you will discover during your MSC Grand Voyages cruise, Hong Kong Island is the heart of the whole territory, its administrative and business centre and site of some of the most expensive real estate in the world.

Development is concentrated along the island’s north shore, a 6km-long strip of financial, commercial and entertainment districts overlooking Victoria Harbour.
At its core, Central sprouts an astounding array of high-tech towers, edged to the west by Sheung Wan’s smaller-scale and traditional Chinese businesses. Behind this the land climbs steeply to The Peak, wherever you get them from, vistas are stupendous, down over the island’s intensely crowded north shore, across the busy harbour to a lower-rise, unspectacular Kowloon and the green peaks of the New Territories. Man Mo Temple is one of the oldest in Hong Kong, waiting to be value on an MSC Grand Voyages cruise excursion.
It dates to the 1840s and was originally founded as a charitable institution; the central atrium beyond is hung with great spiral incense coils suspended from the ceiling, filling the interior with eye-watering, aromatic smoke. Back along the harbour and moving east through Wan Chai and Causeway Bay, the emphasis shifts from finance to wining, dining and shopping. The south side of Hong Kong Island straggles into the sea in a series of dangling peninsulas and islets. The attractions here are separate towns such as Aberdeen and Stanley, with a flavour of their own, and also beaches, the best of which fronts the little outpost of Shek O. East of the Aberdeen expressway, Causeway Bay forms a knot of lively, seething streets packed with restaurants, accommodation and shopping plazas, its eastern part is dominated by Victoria Park, an extensive, open space containing shady paths, swimming pools and other sport facilities.

When your MSC cruise brings you to Shanghai it is easy to understand that after years of stagnation, this great metropolis is undergoing one of the fastest economic expansions the world has ever seen.

As Shanghai begins to recapture its position as East Asia’s leading business city, a status it last held before World War II, the skyline is filling with high-rises – there are well over a thousand now.
Gleaming shopping malls, luxurious hotels and prestigious arts centres are rising alongside, while underneath everything snakes the world’s longest subway system. Shanghai’s 23 million residents enjoy the highest incomes on the mainland, and there’s plenty for them to splash out on; witness the rash of celebrity restaurants and designer flagship stores. MSC Grand Voyages cruises also offer excursions to the Bund – Shanghai’s original signature skyline –, a strip of grand Neoclassical colonial edifices on the west bank of the Huangpu River Pudong on the opposite shore – a backdrop domestic visitors queue up against to have their picture taken.
Named after an old Anglo-Indian term, “bunding” (the embanking of a muddy foreshore), the Bund’s official name is Zhongshan Lu but it’s better known among locals as Wai Tan (literally “Outside Beach”).
By whatever name, this was old Shanghai’s commercial heart, with the river on one side and the offices of the leading bank and trading houses on the other. Jinmao Tower is a beautiful building, an elegant tapering postmodern take on Art Deco, has an observation deck on the 88th floor. An ear-popping lift whisks you up 340m to the top in a matter of seconds. The spectacle of the city spread out before you is of course sublime, but turn round for a giddying view down the building’s glorious galleried atrium. Shanghai Museum is one of the city’s highlights, with a fantastic, well-presented collection.
