What are the top five must-see attractions in Shanghai?

I'm planning on taking a trip to Shanghai this year and would love to know what you think the top five must-sees are. I love interesting architecture, great walking streets, museums, shopping as long as it's independently owned stores (not interested in seeing H & M in China), and great people watching. Not a big foodie, but if there's a restaurant you think is a must-see I'll check it out! I'm also OK with major attractions as long as they're really worth it. I'll be visiting a friend but sight-seeing on my own--I'm pretty adventurous but I probably shouldn't venture too far out from civilization. Thanks!

Here are my top 4! I was totally jet-lagged in Shanghai and didn't do nearly enough, considering I was there a week!

1. People's Square - the heart of the city where you can catch a moment of peace among the trees and ponds

2. The Bund as seen from across the river - the 'money shot' of Shanghai, beautiful by day or night (though the pollution will be less obvious by night)

3. The City God Temple - once you make it past the homeless and hawkers, a really spiritual place to learn about the history of the country

4. Tianshan Tea City (No.520 Zhongshan West Road, Changning District, Shanghai, China) - perfect for exploring and learning about everything tea related

Also, it's worth checking out the Air Quality Index app before you go, so you know what days will be good for being outside.
