  • Your date begins at the luxurious Sunset by Yannick AllΓ©no, located in the Raffles City complex. Enjoy contemporary French cuisine with a panoramic view of the cityscape as your backdrop. After dinner, head to the Bund waterfront area, which is beautifully lit in the evening and is a perfect spot for scenic photography. Your partner will appreciate the photo opportunities. Finish the night with a slow stroll along the Huangpu River, captivated by the stunning Pudong skyline.
  • Capture the magic of the night with memories framed against the city's iconic landmarks including the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, Shanghai World Financial Center, and Shanghai Tower. A September evening in Shanghai promises a moderate climate and typically clear skies, perfect for your outdoor adventure.
  • Bear in mind that in the midst of the bustling city, a serene stroll along the Huangpu provides an opportunity to connect and share intimate moments. It's a romantic haven in the heart of this rapidly pulsating city.

Preparation steps:

  • Reserve your table at the Sunset by Yannick AllΓ©no in advance, preferably during the sunset hour to catch the city transforming from day to night. Opt for cozy comfy clothes which would be suitable for dining and for a leisurely stroll afterward. Inform the restaurant if any special arrangements are needed, like vegetarian options or allergies.
  • Ensure your camera or smartphone is fully charged to capture the magical moments. You can also consider bringing along a portable charger. Pack a light jacket as a precaution in case the weather cools off in the evening.
  • Check the weather forecast closer to your date and rearrange if the weather could interfere with your plans. Hiring a taxi for the evening might be desirable to avoid relying on busy public transportation and to keep the mood relaxed and romantic.

Some tips:

  • Ensure you check the restaurant's dress code before you go. Sunset by Yannick AllΓ©no is quite chic so dress to impress. However, make sure you're comfortable for your walk along the Huangpu River afterwards.
  • Consider hiring a professional local photographer for a couple of hours if photography is not your strong suit. They can capture high-quality, spontaneous and candid moments, while you enjoy the experience. This could be a pleasant surprise for your partner and might be worth the investment.
  • Try to coincide your visit to the Bund with the daily light show that happens from 7 pm to 10 pm. It can be a spectacular visual treat with the city's iconic buildings glittering in myriad lights.
