Helsinki

Helsinki ©

Daughter of the Baltic

Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Market Square Kauppatori and Kamppi Shopping Centre. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Change things up with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo (about 48 minutes away). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Temppeliaukio Church, take a stroll through Katajanokka, explore the galleries of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and stop by Taiga Colors.

Plan my Helsinki trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Shanghai, China to Helsinki is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. You can also drive. You'll gain 6 hours traveling from Shanghai to Helsinki due to the time zone difference. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Shanghai in December, with highs in Helsinki at 3°C and lows at -3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Wed) early enough to travel to Inari.
