InterContinental Shanghai Expo seamlessly blends business and pleasure to create an environment where tourists can enjoy exploring the city and business travelers can thrive in the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s productive working environments and sumptuous lounges. The outdoor villas and gardens here are particularly welcoming. They create a place where you can stroll or lounge while drinking a fine lager on the porch at the Liquor Factory, the onsite English pub. Pleasure is a must here, as the Four-Star spa is spacious and extravagant with signature treatments like the detoxifying thalasso body wrap and the unconventional milky spa bath. Though the InterContinental was built for the 2010 World Expo, the hotel is now situated in the heart of Shanghai’s growing Pudong district and has stunning views of the Huangpu River so you can watch the barges roll by.
