To help their freshmen from overseas have a better understanding of Shanghai, the International Exchange Center of Shanghai Normal University organized a one-day trip for the new students on Sept 13 -- which fell on China's traditional Mid-Autumn Festival.

A total of 83 international students attended the trip, which included visits to several must-see attractions in the city, where antiquity meets modern civilization.

The tour started from the Chenghuangmiao, City God Temple, that retains the traditional Chinese architectural style. The temple was decorated with colorful festival lanterns to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival, a glorious sight that prompted students to stop and watch.

Students had a look at the creative cultural products displayed in the old buildings, tasted must-try Shanghai snacks and learned about the time-honored tea culture.

At the China Arts Museum, Along the River During the Qingming Festival, one of the best-known ancient Chinese paintings, presented to the students a wonderful panorama of flourishing urban life in the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127).

At the Shanghai Urban Planning Museum, high-tech exhibits provided clues to the city's developments. The students also experienced the high-speed maglev at Pudong Airport.

The night scene on both sides of the Huangpu River gave the students taking a cruise ship an overview of the city of Shanghai.
