5 Days in Shanghai

by avarnil

Hi all,

My trip to Shanghai has been confirmed for 5 days, from 23 Mar to 27 May.

Basically I will reach shanghai on 23 Mar at 6 plus in the morning.

Planning the following:

23 May Fri
- Cheng Huang Miao
- Yu Yuan

24 May Sat
- Pearl Orient
- The Bund
- People's Square
- Xin Tian Di

25 May Sun
- Nanjing Lu
- Any advice?

26 May Mon
-Hangzhou (Westlake Area)

27 May Tue
- F& E

Any advice on the above?
I heard Qi Pu Lu is not worth going. Anyone's been there before?
Any other places that I should slot in maybe on the last day cos my flight is in the afternoon.


Re: 5 Days in Shanghai

by honestjohn

why not stay Hangzhou for at least 2 days. I strong recommend Hangzhou, the west lake and west mount area, tea plant garden...
Shanghai is very suitable for living, but not worth to stay for long time for travlers.

Seems comprehensive enough of a schedule. The only one I don't see are the museums that are in the city. Just one advice: start early especially with the more popular sights like the Oriental Pearl Tower since these usually have long lines. Also try to visit The Bund and Nanjing lu in the evening to see the place light up.

Sorry to say that I don't think your itinerary is a wise use of time. I presume you meant arriving on 23 May not 23 Mar!
What are your sightseeing interests/preferences?

Re: 5 Days in Shanghai

by avarnil

Hey hey,

Those are the places that i intend to touch.
I'm meeting my shanghai friend on the 1st day, hence the itinerary was suggested by her.
The next 2 days will be with another couple staying in Shanghai, and then Monday would be Hangzhou cos i was advised not to go during weekend.

Any take?

Re: 5 Days in Shanghai

by ellyse

Ok, so you have an explanation. However still no information whatsoever about your own sightseeing interests and preferences. How are we supposed to know what would be worth your time visiting? Your itinerary is hardly organised geographically logically either. What time do you fly out on 27/5?

Re: 5 Days in Shanghai

by avarnil

Well, i'm returning on 27 in the afternoon, i gotta leave shanghai probably by 1 or 2pm.

Seriously, i have not much preferences, what I want to do is to really go to places worth seeing, and maybe do a bit of shopping.

I don't know what YOU would consider "worth seeing"! I'm not you...

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Forgot your handphone charger? Fret not...

by xiao

One of the most amazing thing I found in Shanghai. Can be found at the Tourist Information Centre next to Lu Xun Park, as well as at the departure hall of Pudong airport. Can't recall how much it cost, but definitely cheap.

Ren Min restaurant locates on...

by tierneyli

Ren Min restaurant locates on the west part of NanJing st., number 226. It was founded many years ago and provides very authentic Su Xi flavor meal. The service is not very good, but the food is very worth your money. (Salt Chicken)Ñξּ¦ AÅÌ20Ôª

Yu Yuan Gardens

by bellatrix

The Yu Yuan, or "Yu the Mandarin's Garden", is characteristic of the architectural style of the Ming dynasty. It is a private garden in the southeast of Shanghai, with a history of more than 400 years. The Garden, reminiscent of those in Suzhou, features more than 30 halls and pavilions. It is divided into six parts, each separated by a white brick wall, the top of which forms and undulating gray dragon. Each part of the park, although divided, has a balance and harmony creating a unity of expression.

Paul2001's Four Fascinating Days in Shanghai

by Paul2001

If you want to see Modern China in it's making, then you should need to go no further than Shanghai. This city is the epitome of the 21st century China. In fact if some economists are right in there predictions of China's role in the global economy, a visit to Shanghai may be a glimpse into the future. Shanghai is the engine of the new and booming Chinese economy.
The city is so modern in it's recent developments that it is hard to think that it does have a past. However the past is very visible in places like the Bund and in its magnificent Shanghai Museum. However as interesting as these attractions are, it is modern Shanghai that dazzles. The skyscrapers and towers here are amongst the tallest in the world. The subway/metro system is the finest I have ever traveled on. It has the best nightlife of any of the cities in China that I visited. Finally the shopping here is almost incomparable and certainly amongst the finest that you will find in the world. It all comes at a cost. Shanghai is more expensive than other Chinese cities. Also like so many other Chinese cities, the historical past as been flattened for the sack of progress. The result is that the city can be somewhat sterile. It is still fascinating just the same and I do not think that you can leave China and really get a complete idea of how it's developing economically and socially without visiting Shanghai.
