At Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund, brunch is an event worth training for. The hotel’s Sunday Brunch Tour kicks off at Long Bar, where you’ll fill up on oysters and champagne before moving to Peacock Alley for coffee and pastries. You’ll then wind your way to Grand Brasserie for an astounding spread — a seafood bar, a roast-carving station, a dim sum selection and Western dishes like made-to-order omelets with ingredients like foie gras, lobsters, scallops and truffles. Be sure to try the brioche French toast with caramelized orange. Pace yourself here because you will fill up quickly. Brunch at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel is RMB488 (US$77) per person (plus 15 percent), which includes still and sparkling water, soft drinks, coffee, tea and freshly squeezed juice. Tack on another RMB100 (US$16) for red and white wines and Veuve Clicquot champagne.
