People have done all kinds of crazy things for the 'gram.
Like climb some very tall buildings and hang off the side like it's nbd.
Rob a bank (yeah, that happened).
Or chill next to a tornado.
So yeah. Some pretty intense stuff.
But there are a boat load of less dangerous (and more delicious) things you can do right here in Shanghai that'll 100% up your Instagram game.
So - here are 10 experiences you'll more than "like".
1. Parallel World 2 Exhibition
They've got glitz, glamour, kaleidoscope walls, and giant cat toys for you to pose with. This exhibition is a photo-friends' playground. With bubbles to pop and flowers falling from the ceiling, this interactive art exhibition is one you really can't miss. It might even earn you some followers.
Super Brand Mall

2. Brunch at Puben by Jeremy Leung
Whether you select one of their many fine wines or go for the tea cocktails (all limitless BTW), between the live performances and the culinary tour of China, you really can't go wrong. Plus you can stroll alongside the Bund after for some extra selfies and to burn off some of those calories.

3. The Color Run
Promoting happiness, healthiness, and community - The Color Run is the perfect way to spend a day getting fit and having fun with your friends.

4. French Concession Bike Tour
Arguably one of the most photogenic neighbourhoods in our lovely city, there's no better way to see it than by bike. Not to mention getting your fixie in the frame adds a little hip-ness to the *~*aesthetic*~*.

5. Shanghai Disney Resort
Nothing says Instagram worthy like Shanghai Disneyland. From their perfectly curated flowers, to the oh so kawaii characters strolling around the park, your camera roll will be full by the time you leave this magic kingdom. Also the castle. And the fireworks. And the Mickey Mouse shaped ice cream bars.
