Best time to go, Best place to stay

by crayonz

Hi, my friends and I planned to go Shanghai in the first week of July. May I check if July is a good time to go Shanghai, cos I understand that the weather will be quite hot from July-Sep. We also planned to stay in service apartment, was looking at Somerset Grand/Xu Hui or New Harbour. Which is the recommended one? We would like the aparment to be accessible and can accomodate 4pax (2-bedroom). Thanks a lot lot! :)

Hi bund-bnb, thanks for your reply :)
I'm a Singaporean. So I suppose if we visit Shanghai in early July, the weather is pretty much the same as Singapore. It seems like New Harbour is a much better choice than Somerset apartment. But what about the transport, which is more accessible? And is the interior(the rooms) of New Harbour a lot worse than Somerset? How many stars are the apartments? Btw, you mentioned that your two apartments are much nicer than both of them but fully booked until after 8th July. What apartment do you have?

Look forward your reply. Cheers :)

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Fung Pu - The Fungxian ditrict - Dining out

by mcgruff75044

Fungxian is a suburb way on the ourskirts of Shanghai. It was originally a farming community and has some of the best watermelons in the world!!!!!!!!!! And I come from one of the world's watermelon capitols!!!!

But the main street for some reason is home to some of the better restaurants in Shanghai. I should be able to post pictures and names in a feww days or weeks, whenever the cam gets full and I have it put on disk. Until then just wait or contact me for details

Bus is the easiest way

by SLLiew

When you know the bus routes, you will find that the bus is the cheapest way to get around Shanghai. Most of the buses will stop at People's Park.

You just need to know which number and where to stop or change bus.

At every stop, there are signs of the bus numbers and their routes in Chinese. So knowing the name of the place in Mandarin helps. Have a local write it down and you can match.

OK, the buses can be crowded.

There is a double decker bus number 911 which I wanted to ride but never had the chance.

When I feel really tired and not want to stand or wait, I will just opt for a taxi. But the regular buses are real money savers.

-Nanjing Dung Lu (modern street)
After weeks of roughing it out in china, the modern extremes of Shanghai can be as relaxing for one as the quite mountains of Tibet. The above picture was taken at Nanjing Dong Lu, a major street at Shanghai. This modernized street is packed with stores, shoppers, and tourists.

Shanghai, more about...

by angelochka

Were impressed my chinese modern art in Shanghai Art Museum..but of course we visited it after visiting Shanghai museum (Chinese art on permanent display, this is a must if you want a chronological look at art in China, Shanghai Art Museum has artifacts from the Xia, Ming, and Qing Dynasties. There i was impressed by wide collection of national costumes from different small ethnicities, living in China.

Skyscrapers are so different there...

Shanghai's growing wealth and Shanghai's growing buildings...
