Fujian Oolong Tea in Shanghai
Shop owner and shop assistans are quite friendly, offer free tasting and are good companions for small talk good quality fujian oolong tea ask for discounts and don't try to buy cheaper if they have different price range for same blend..buy most expensive ( it is anyway NOT so much expensive). Always taste what you buy!

The best part is that it is made exactly for foreigners. i guess. coz most people there were non-chinese. there was this duck thing. really cant recollect the names. im posting the pictures of the dishes for your info. it should help you to decide.
contact VTer cecilia for more info. she is a great guide for this place
Enjoying Shanghai at Night
During my short business trip to Shanghai, I was only able to visit a few places--and I only go to visit them at night. I spent my last night admiring the Shanghai skyline on one of the bars on a building along the Bund.
Pardon me if I don't supply the name of the bar or the building, I was a bit inebriated and taking down notes (and names) was the last thing on my mind.
It's a great place to spend a night with colleagues/friends, drinking and just plain admiring the view. Just remember to take a shawl or a coat with you during those cold, crisp nights. It's best to admire the view from the outdoors, but which you can't do if you're freezing cold.
I would discourage you, however, to walk along the esplanade across the Bund at night. There simply are too many gawking tourists and too many traders just begging for attention. It isn't the best way to enjoy the skyline on both sides of the river.
I came here on a wet day and so, it seemed, did everybody else as it's a superb museum. Expect a lot of queuing and waiting around just to get inside. Anyway, the museum was opened in 1996 and is located in the middle of People's Square in the heart of the city. Designed by a local architect, the museum building is designed in the shape of an ancient, bronze, tripod cooking vessel called a ding. The museum has a collection of over 120,000 pieces, including bronze, ceramics, calligraphy, furniture, jades, ancient coins, paintings, seals, sculptures, minority art and foreign art. It has eleven galleries and three special temporary exhibition halls.
Open: 9am-5pm every day. Admission: Free.
