Total Solar Eclipse Trip to Shanghai

by aadil

Any one going to Shanghai for the Total Solar Eclipse on 22nd July 2009? I am thinking of going there with a small group of amateur astronomers from Mumbai, India. Would like to know which good travel agencies in China to contact for travel plans, accomodation, etc. Would like to know from locals in Shanghai if there is an active astronomers group organising something from the centerline of the eclipse South of Shanghai. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for any replies.

Cheers,
Aadil.

I've been thinking about it. I've also been thinking of going to India on a different trip.

For astronomical observations, Shanghai is not the best place. The high summer humidity and air polution keeps the sky hazy or obscured much of the time in the summer. If you want to sit and have a cocktail while the sky darkens, this is as good a place as any, just don't expect to see a corona except in a bar.

Where would you suggest then Ray?

Re: Total Solar Eclipse Trip to Shanghai

by gaolei

Not sure what I would recommend. I have not seen any information about the eclipse. The delta region surrounding Shanghai and along the ocean and bay is very humid. The humidity is exacerbated by the pollution I was also inland about 150 km south of Hangzhou during the summer. It was also extremely humid. I think all you can do is see if there is something online that gives more information, or maybe someone here can help.

What is the path of the eclipse?

Re: Total Solar Eclipse Trip to Shanghai

by MikeySoft

There was a map on the internet I saw a year or so ago. I can't find if now but I'm sure google will fine it if I keep looking long enough.

I think it said it is the longest eclipse in the 21 century. Meaning it's path is very long but some of it will be over the pacific with out land to watch it.

Ray is correct the high summer humidity and air polution will keeps the sky hazy. Perhpas out in the rural area or even Suizhou. Have you tried contacting the local astronomer clubs?

As for travel arrangement Shanghai is relatively easy to get around so once you know where you want to "set up camp" you can book the hotels online. Check some of the sites such as Travel China Guides "http://www.travelchinaguide.com/cityguides/shanghai.htm"
As a group apartment hotels will be a good choice, they have 2-3 bedrooms and you can keep the costs down by sharing the apartment.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Shopping in China's most important shopping St.

by Nemoa about Nanjin Road.

Nanjing Rd is one of the longest shopping streets in the world. 3.4-mile-long road starting at the Bund in the east and ending in the west at the junction of Jingan Temple and Yan'an West Street.

It is a historical landmark too. After the Opium War (1839-1842), Shanghai became a treaty port. Nanjing Road was first the British Concession, then the International Settlement. Importing large quantities of foreign goods, it became the earliest shopping street in Shanghai.

Today is lined with all sort of fashionable shops and restaurants.

I made some good shopping myself here.
V. recommended. Although in my opinion it does not beat the Hong Kong shopping markets and streets. Clothes, shoes, you name.
Anything can be found here. As little or as much as you want!

If you miss REAL coffee...

by alsonamedbort1 about Starbucks Coffee

My first few days in China were stressful... and I am a coffee addict. I was craving something familiar and I happened upon this starbucks. Well, it's sad to say but it made my day. I have worked part time at several coffee shops during my college career and I know a good cappuccino. Maybe because I was homesick, maybe because of the different milk, but the cappuccino here was the BEST! So rich and creamy, with the perfect proportion of espresso, milk, and froth. The staff was incredibly kind and considerate, the store was clean, and they had air conditioning on a hot shanghai day! Cappuccino-- as I described before!

oh, and I wanted to take a photo but on the door there is a sign that says "no photos"--I even asked the barista, but she said that it wasn't allowed. but we all know what a Starbucks looks like, don't we?

The m/v Oriana

by MacKiwi

The Oriana was one of the worlds great ocean going passenger liners owned by P&O. In March 1986 Oriana was withdrawn from service and shortly thereafter sold to Japanese business interests. The intention was to use her as a floating hotel, museum and conference center in Oita near Beppu; a resort on the Japanese Island of Kyushu. Her funnels were painted a hideous pink. By 1995 the business venture had failed and she was sold to the Chinese government. She was towed to Chinwangtoa where she was used as a government-owned 'accommodation center'. In November 1998, she was purchased by the Hangzhou West Lake International Toursim Culture Development Co. Ltd. for $6 million. She was again under tow and taken to Shanghai. She underwent a refit in Zinghua Harbor and was billed as a floating tourist attraction. The refit cost $3.5 million and in February 1999 Oriana was opened to the public. A little over a year and a half later, in August 2000 Hangzhou West Lake International, 85% owner of the liner, announced it would be placing it's stake in the ship up for auction in September. Oriana, despite half a million visitors in 18 months, had not shown expected profits. The Hangzhou based Song Dynasty Town Group succeeded in netting the 85% stake at a price of US$7.25 million at the auction. Huang Qiaoling, a member of the board of directors, revealed that the future operation of the liner will focus on its features as a 'British culture and a palace at sea.' In Dec 2001, The World Ship Society's December news letter reports that the liner is to be moved yet again. This time to the Chinese port of Dalian, having been sold for approximately US$4.5m. She is to be refitted to become a floating theme park, museum and banquet hall. Long may she last!!

Longhua Pagoda

by Willettsworld

Standing outside the Longhua Temple in the south of the city, this 40-metre high pagoda is the only remaining pre-modern pagoda in Shanghai. It has an octagonal floor layout spread over seven storeys that decrease in size from the bottom to the top. The pagoda consists of a hollow, tube-like brick core surrounded by a wooden staircase. On the outside, it is decorated with balconies, banisters, and upturned eaves. These outer decorations have been reconstructed in keeping with the original style. Although previous pagodas existed on the same site, the current brick base and body of the pagoda was built in 977 during the Song Dynasty, with continuous renovations of its more fragile wooden components on the exterior.
