Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund hosts a slew of holiday events for both Chinese and Western cultures. There’s a Christmas tree lighting ceremony, which is particularly fun for kids and generally has a charity element to it. Mother’s Day and Father’s Day see big brunches to celebrate Mom and Dad, while Valentine’s Day promotions, including meals and special room rates, give you an opportunity to wow your significant other. If you’re interested in celebrating a holiday like American Independence Day or Australia Day, you can ask the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel to help you contact local chambers of commerce, who are always throwing events around Shanghai.
