TAKING a long, hot soak in a big bathtub is a great way to relax and let the mind roam free. The experience is enhanced when immersed in a tub that offers great views.

Many upscale hotels in Shanghai provide some incredible bathrooms featuring deep tubs with views of famous landmarks such as the Bund, Lujiazui or Zhongshan Park.

And in many of these bathrooms, the hotels provide a DVD player, flat-screen television and sound dock so guests can plug in their iPods or iPhones and bop to the beat while relaxing in the tub.

For extra pleasure, rooms can be personalized with a variety of scents that help set the mood, ranging from light and calming to musky and invigorating. Guests can also choose from three kinds of bath salts from the bath menu. After finishing that soak, slip into the plush bed lined with 800-thread-count fine cotton linens.
