Pre-paid SIM card

by althea1028

Should I just wait until I get to Shanghai to buy a pre-paid SIM card?

Re: Pre-paid SIM card

by MikeySoft

I would wait until I get to China

From my 2007 trip, I expect they are similar now. SIM cards were very inexpensive. They cost between 50 and 100 RMB, include 50 RBM of minutes.

You will need an unlocked GSM phone. Unlocked means other SIM cards will work in your phone, not just ones from your provider. In the US, your provider will give you the unlock code after you own the phone for 3 months. You can also search the internet for unlock codes.

The phone should support 900 and/or 1800 mhz. 900 is better but 1800 is ok for big cities.

The price of the card depends on the phone number. 8 is a lucky number in Chinese, so lots of 8s will be expensive. The Chinese word for number 4 sounds similar to death, so a number with lots of 4s will be less expensive. I say the numbers in English so any number is ok with me.

Yes, Buy in Shanghai. As stated the cards are cheap and come with minutes. You can easily get more in any department store and many other places. They will also put the codes into your phone for you to add minutes. This helps you avoid trying to understand their phone system.

Thanks guys! I'll definitely get it there once I land. I'm assuming it also includes SMS messages, right? Do they have English instructions on the pre-paid card packet?

I don't remember, I got mine a long time ago. If you use it on a regular basis, you keep the same phone number. Usually the person selling it in a departmant store will load it for you. All you do is pay.

Re: Pre-paid SIM card

by MikeySoft

yes, it supports SMS messages. Now sure about English. The saler will activate the card in your phone.

Re: Pre-paid SIM card

by gaolei

All cards support SMS. This is the primary means of communications in China.

They really aren't difficult to recharge. I would let the seller set it up for you. To recharge you can usually get the seller to do it for you otherwise it is a matter of ringing a number and following the prompts -some will be in Chinese but will say 2 for English so then you just press 2 and the rest is in English. The only trick is the # key. In Australia it is known as the hash key (as we used to have pounds currency with its own symbol) but Americans call it the pound key. So when they tell you to press the pound key that is what they mean.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Shoushang Stone

by albaaust about See card

While we were in Shanghai we watched a progamme about the "magnificence" of Shoushang Stone and the high regard it is held because of its rarity.

When we went to the Yu Yuan Gradens there were a number of shops that seemed to specialise in Shoushang stone, camel bone carvings, jade and other types of sculpture.

One such place that we thought was worthwhile was the Fujian Shoushang Stone House.
I am including a scanned copy of the card advertising the shop.

Even if you don't go here there are a number of other shops selling similar wares that are worth a visit.

Big beers with view of the Bund

by WesHK about Paulaner Brauhaus

Go when the weather is good and grab an outdoor table; you will be treated to a fantastic view of the Huangpu river and the Bund. We went on a weekday and were surrounded by German businessmen in suits meeting with their Shanghainese counterparts.

The beer obviously wonderful, but it is a little expensive. Luckily it is 50% off during happy hour - 4-7pm. The regular price for 1L of lager is over 120RMB. All the usual German favorites are here and are they are authentic. Weiner Scnhitzel, Sausages, Rouladen, etc.

Watery Jade and the Gardens

by nomadig

Yuyuan Garden is a cramped rock garden that host several classical Chinese buildings and the watery jade, a large piece of jade rock that was shipped to the imperial court in Beijing, but got sunk near Shanghai. The rock itself is a small disappointment, as it doesn't look like jade at all, but the garden itself is charming.

The garden has a lot of curvy paths in middle of the rocks, and several ponds, some of them populated with carps. The whole place is very photogenic, and not too crowded. Several garden buildings have exhibitions of Chinese art.
