by vhaseloff

We are arriving in Shanghai Wed 21 July at 1815 by air.
Staying at Astor Hotel.
Is there a bar on roof top near to hotel where we can get a drink and take in the night views and take some photos after we check in to our Hotel?
We dapart by train Thu 22 July at around 2200 for Beijing.
Is it possible to get a guide and driver for the day?
Any idea of cost?
Any recommendations?
Or should we do an organised day tour?
Are the works on the Bund completed yet?

Appreciate your replies

regards

Vic

I just came back from shanghai in Jan and the construction around the Bund is most complete. They want to get everything finish by May when they open the 2010 Shanghai Expo which I will be attending. Good view of the river at night could be found at the Hyatt, it is along the Huangpu River, but the area has plenty of nightlife to go to. Having just one day in shanghai is not enough. Just to explore the Bund and Nanginj road which is shoppers paradise will take a day to stop and eat and shop. There is a river cruise along the Huangpu River at the Bund southern ferry port. It is about two hours and tickets are cheap I think 50 yuans.There are many people in shanghai and traffic. Keep your day simple and take lots of photos.

Yes, on top of the Grand Hyatt there is a bar call Cloudy Nine, it's said to be the tallest bar in the world. You can view the Band from there. Hoever, lights in Band will turn off at 10pm, so don't be there too late.

Visit Captain Bar for a really nice view of the Pudong skyline. According to some, this bar is the cheapest drink with a view there is in Shanghai but I can't comment on that.

Captain Bar at Captain Hostel (you don't need to be a guest to go to the bar)

Well, I don't know if xymmot and enzhu are talking about the same place, I wouldn't think so. xymmot named the Hyatt on the Bund which's on the Puxi side, north of the Bund; enzhu named the Grand Hyatt which's in Pudong's Lujiazui area, Jinmao Tower. If you don't need a bird's-eye view then the Hyatt on the Bund would serve you fine, and it's also reasonably close to your hotel.
I suppose you're leaving on the T train?
By the time you come the renovations on the Bund will definitely be completed, don't worry.

As for Captain's Hostel (and the bar), I've had such rude service there on more than one occasion that I do not care to recommend it to anyone anymore. I guess this is a typical example of a place gone bad after it went into the Lonely Planet guidebook.
I might be able to help out with the guiding. If you need help, send me a VTMail.

Many thanks to all replies.We will take up your advixce.

One more question

Is the Astor Hotel within walking distance of where we board the T train to Beijing or do we need to take a taxi?

Vic

Re: 24 hours in Shanghai

Certainly not walking distance, unfortunately! Take a taxi and I would expect it to be no more than about 30 RMB.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Go to Zhouzhang - it is about...

by Audrey118

Go to Zhouzhang - it is about 100 km west of Shanghai. Zhouzhang, known widely as the 'Venice of China' and is said to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site (although I doubted it as I believe that only Lijiang in Yunnan is a Unesco Site). Zhouzhang is a quaint, old-style town, with no vehicles allowed in the center. You can however travel to the centre there on trishaws.

There are lots of bridges over the canals and you can venture along the stone walkway and look at the many souvenier shops. There are also lots of artists that would do a quick portrait sketch or some made dough models of yourself etc for a small fee. Or you could get a ride on a gondola. The pier is inside a stone cottage, with winding steel railings. The ride is quite interesting, and you go down the narrow canal, under arched bridges and past many teahouses, small hotels etc. But again, there is one too many of these gondolas along the very narrow canal.

Why do the waiters have to speak foreign language?

by kumpulrebo about T8 Restaurant

Why do they have to speak English? They won't even answer in Putonghua when spoken to in their native language, until the last minute when leaving, then they were all smiles and friendly. Were they being happy that we left finally? Yes, it is not easy for the young waiters to be polite when using English. Manager please note: Let them use Putonghua if it makes them comfortable and relax, especially when the guests speak the same. Aiyayaaaaa, ta ma di ing wen!!! IS THIS STILL IN THE COLONIAL ERA or WHAT!!! Relax mate, if you really would like to portray the easy going nature of an Aussie fine dining.

The food is excellent. However, I would rather have the waiters/waitresses from median priced Ding Tai Fung, Su Che Hui, any Chamate restaurants hijacked and forget about English speaking skills. You're not running a Call Centre to English speaking countries here.

The sour note is on the tepid sparkling mineral water that was offered on arrival. It this mineral water from street vendor at Fuyou Street of Old Shanghai? It was 37 degree celcius during the day, the average Aussies would choked on drinking room temperature water.

Laughing out loud when kitchen crew, Xiang, answers 'Yes, Sir!' to the female order shouter. Those were the relaxed moments for us.

Enchanting experience

by Lionshart

Great place to visit, Full of monks and local worshippers, and guides who want you to buy expensive souvenirs, We opted instead to put money in the charity box. Its open from 8am - 4.30pm. Its an active Zen Buddhist shrine and the temple dates back to 1882. The focal points are 2 white jade buddha statues carved from a single slab of Burmese jade, one sitting and the other reclining. ( pictures and video cannot be taken of the sitting one). you have to pay twice, once to enter, and the other if you want to view the 2 center pieces.

Jing'an Temple

by cheezecake_deli

First built during the Southern Song Dynasty in the early 1200s, Jing'an Temple (previously called Bubbling Well Temple) has been rebuilt and renovated several times, most recently in 2002. It is now marooned along commercial Nanjing Xi Lu, surrounded by upscale shopping malls, high-end office buildings and luxury apartments. The Buddhist temple complex contains the 3.3 metre Peace Bell and a 2.2 metre cow-skin drum. Open daily from 0730 to 1700.
