Cosmopolitan Shanghai is situated on the estuary of the Yangtze River and is China's biggest and most prosperous city. Rich in history and oozing vitality yet rivalling New York and Paris in terms of modernity, Shanghai is a wonderfully unique fusion of east and west.

Shanghai is undergoing one of the fastest economic expansions in the world. Soaring skyscrapers reside next to gleaming shopping malls, luxurious hotels and prestigious arts centres, while underneath it all is the world's longest subway system. Yet old Shanghai has not disappeared and its charm can be found amongst the tree-lined streets, the imposing colonial buildings of the Bund and superb array of places to eat and drink.

The magnificent riverside Bund is one of old Shanghai's must see places. The mesmerising collection of grand colonial edifices, many of which house major banks and financial institutions, as well as many restaurants, bars, galleries and designer boutiques. It's a popular place to amble and enjoy the scenery of the Huangpu River, to watch early morning Tai Chi or relax at one of the restaurant or bar terraces whilst taking in the spectacular night view.

Another highlight of Shanghai is Yuyuan Gardens, which lie in the centre of the old city. Dating back to 1577, there are six main scenic areas which include shaded alcoves, glittering pools, ponds, cloisters, halls and pavilions. Other sights include the Shanghai Art Museum, Jade Buddha Temple and Xin Tian Di, a fashionable pedestrian street with restored Shikumen traditional houses, bars, restaurants and shops.

Across the river from the Bund is the new Pudong area, where Shanghai's reinvention first took hold in the early 1990s. The futuristic buildings are the main draw, including the Shanghai Tower, Jin Mao Tower and Oriental Pearl Tower, where you can ride to the top sphere for 360º views of the city. The Pudong also has its own riverside promenade, which while not as atmospheric as that across the water, does offer beautiful views of the Bund.

New in Shanghai for 2016, is Shanghai Disneyland Park, which opens in June and will bring an array of attractions and entertainment for all ages.

The premier shopping street, Nanjing Road, runs for over three miles and has over 600 outlets offering countless famous brands, upscale designer boutiques, traditional stores and speciality shops along with open-air bars and fast food outlets. International and Chinese cuisine is widely available throughout the city and is renowned for its lively nightlife scene, with a wide choice of pubs and clubs.

There's absolutely nothing ordinary about the "Land of the Rising Sun". In fact, it's very extraordinary. It's impossible to pigeonhole a country which has 21st century soaring skyscrapers and a high-tech bullet train sitting alongside traditional Geisha and the rituals of the tea ceremony. And then, there's the fact that this "tiny" race loves Sumo wrestling, where some of the "biggest" men on the planet compete. There's perhaps nowhere in the world that blends the old with the new quite like this intoxicating country.

Tokyo is a sophisticated, larger than life city that simply dazzles. Busy with a capital "B", as you'd expect from one that is home to 13 million people, the over used word "contrast" is entirely apt in relation to Tokyo. The entertainment district of Shinjuku is filled with soaring skyscrapers, garish neon lights and crowds of people wearing way-out fashions; but, turn a figurative corner and you'll find stillness in the Senso-ji temple in Asakura or tranquillity in the Hamarikyu-en Garden.

To the west of Tokyo lies the Hakone National Park with Mount Fuji, at its heart. It's said that a wise man climbs Mount Fuji once in his life, but only a fool climbs it twice. On a clear day you can drink in the imposing views of this iconic mountain and savour the spectacular scenery as well as perhaps, enjoying the chance to soak in a soothing hot spring. Whilst in Hakone stay in traditional ryokan accommodation during which you'll dine on a sumptuous multi-course meal whilst wearing a kimono before bedding down for the night on a futon.

While Japan's former capital, Kyoto, is a modern city it's where your view of traditional Japan will be fulfilled. Crammed with grand palaces, decorative shrines and glorious gardens, it's also where Geisha hobble down lamp-lit streets and young Japanese girls come to start their six year Geisha training as Maiko. Visit the Gion district to see them.

Despite it's tragic past, a visit to Hiroshima will not be a sad one, as a vibrant metropolis has risen from the ashes of the nuclear bomb which was dropped in 1945. Be sure to visit the Peace Memorial Park and the Cenotaph, under which the Peace Flame burns.

Osaka is Japan's commercial centre and also known as the City of Bridges - no surprise when you learn that it has almost a thousand of them, which are needed to cross the many miles of waterways. The most visited attraction is Osaka Castle, which although a replica, does afford amazing views from the top. Osaka is also one of Japan's great food cities with many restaurants and food stalls found particularly in the entertainment district of Dotonbori. The modern city of Kanazawa is best known for Kenrokuen, a castle garden dating from the 17th century. Six elements comprise the perfect Japanese garden and this one is a prime example!

Further insights to Japan's traditional side are found in Takayama, a charming old world town lying in the midst of the northern alps' snow-capped mountains. Alternatively visit Koysa-San, which is the mountain home of the Shingon sect of Buddhism. Home to over 100 temples it is one of Japan's holiest sites and to spend a night in one of the temples is the quintessential Japanese experience.

Nara, Japan's former capital, belongs to an era before Zen gardens and tea ceremonies. It's greatest draw is the monumental bronze Buddha of Todai-ji as well as the tranquil expanse of the surrounding deer park.

Wherever your Japan holiday takes you, a fascinating experience awaits you, so let Premier Holidays create the perfect holiday for you….
