Welcome back to Monday! Say goodbye to the weekend. It’s been real, but today is a brand new day with a ton of new things to do. In today’s installment of Dollars & Sense, we have come up with a couple of great things to do in Shanghai, China. The best part is that it’s all free. Check it out below.

Visit The Shanghai Museum

Covering four floors and almost 10,000 years of history, the Shanghai Museum hosts an extensive collection of Chinese historical and archeological material, ranging from Neolithic pottery and Zhou dynasty oracle bones, through Tang dynasty calligraphy and painting, to Qing and Ming furniture.In addition to bamboo carvings, ritual and ornamental jade works, sculptures and traditional Chinese art, the museum also contains sections dedicated entirely to Chinese coin collections.

See The Collections Of London’s Biggest At Collectors

March sees the grand opening of Halcyon Gallery, an extension of the London-based art collectors who boast works from artists such as Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso and Damien Hirst in their vault. For the moment, only a portion of the collection is shown at their new Shanghai space, but if the quantity is small, the names viewable are undisputed art giants.

Financial Tip Of The Day

Avoid Impulse Buying

Make it a habit to avoid impulse buying. Many of the things you want to buy do not seem all that necessary, if you only you wait for a day or two. Also, waiting means you will be able to check prices and make an informed decision to buy it at the best possible price.
