I love Shanghai and will be heading there again in July - hopefully I will also see a bit of Expo while I am there. There are a lot of old areas with original architecture and then there is the new - so much of it.

There is lots of shopping - I did most of mine outside the main CBD and found lots of bargains - music, videos etc. Didn't drink too much coffee then but I am sure there are plenty of places to go - will check them out this trip perhaps as I will be wirth friends for a few days.

There are some lovely walks around the Bund and the parks close to the CBD

Shanghai is a great place but when I compare it with Hong Kong you should know:
pollution is very bad in Shanghai, terrible smell sometimes even in the citycentre.
Be careful with taxidrivers, many of them have no idea where they have to go:
Some friends of mine had a printed paper with the adress of our ship in chinese language, but the driver was not able to read it, drove them around for 90 minutes before they got out of the taxi in order to get another one. driver did not accept any money, so this was not a scam, he simply was unable to find this place and also did not want to "loose his face" !

If you love Hong Kong you should like Shanghai - I think its great!

You will see a contrast in architecture from the old town and Pudong on the otherside of the HangPu River. Walking along the Bund is a great way to see both. Make sure you go at night time to see the lights. There are plenty of places for coffee and to buy souvenirs. Try to get to see an acrobats show - amazing.

What were the comments on Expedia? Sorry, don't have the time to trawl through that at the moment.

Re: Will I enjoy Shanghai as much as Hong kong

by metalmartin

What is was thinking in was the lack of cleaning of the rooms and thin walls... as some complain on...but as all over the world u can get unlucky (working in hotel myself)

I know i dont expect fantastic but for a 2 star in Shanghai how do it compare
to others...

Re: Will I enjoy Shanghai as much as Hong kong

by xymmot

to me 2 stars are like mom and pop, 3 and up goes to major chain. Anytime there is a room that is inexpensive in Shanghai, take it. I spend more time out of the room and just sleep there. There is so much to see and do in Shanghai. Cheers Tommy x

Re: Will I enjoy Shanghai as much as Hong kong

Thin walls are always a problem with a lot of these cheaper hotels, it's not unique to East Asia Hotel.
I would be fine with the price and location.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Jin Mao Tower

by imstress

Jin Mao Building in Pudong is the tallest skyscraper in China and a soaring monument to Shanghai's economic boom.

Jin Mao has 88 floors and an octagon floor plan. It was topped out on August 28 last year and completed on August 28 this year.

The 420.5-meter-tall building is an engineering triumph. Many technological breakthroughs were required to erect it. The builders drove 1,062 steel pipes as far as 83.5 meters down -- the longest steel piles ever used in a land-based building -- and poured a four-meter-thick concrete base 19.6 meters under the ground to support the building.

Jin Mao is sheathed in glass and a framework of aluminum alloy pipes that give the facade a silvery patina. The top level is an observatory deck for sightseers. Two high-speed elevators can send up to 35 people straight to the 88th floor in 45 seconds. Grand Hyatt Shanghai, a five-star hotel, occupies the 53rd to 87th floors. The lower floors are for offices, retail and dining outlets.

Airports

by Sharrie

From the 2 airports, ie. Pudong International & Hongqiao International Airports there are special bus routes to town. It should cost around RMB18. As for taxis, it costs about RMB50 to Pudong from Hongqiao I. Airport.

Subway: 2 lines. Line 1 costs about RMB4 from Shanghai train station to Xingzhuang & line 2 costs about RMB5 from Zhongshan Park to Longyang Road.

The Garden of Peace and Comfort

by Anjin-san

Yuyuan Garden located in the center of the Old City next to the Chenghuangmiao in Shanghai, China, is considered one of the most lavish and finest Chinese gardens in the region.

The garden was reportedly first established in 1559 as a private garden created by Pan Yunduan, who spent almost 20 years building a garden to please his father Pan En, a high-ranking official in the Ming Dynasty, during his father's old age. Over the years, the gardens fell into disrepair until about 1760 when bought by merchants, then suffered extensive damage in the 19th century. In 1842, during the Opium Wars, the British army occupied the Town God Temple for five days. During the Taiping Rebellion the gardens were occupied by imperial troops, and damaged again by the Japanese in 1942. They were repaired by the Shanghai government from 1956-1961, opened to the public in 1961, and declared a national monument in 1982.

Today, Yuyuan Garden occupies an area of 2 hectares (5 acres), and is divided into six general areas laid out in the Suzhou style:

Grand Rockery - rockery made of huangshi stone (12 m high), featuring peaks, cliffs, winding caves and gorges. Thie scenery was possibly created by Zhang Nanyang in the Ming Dynasty.
This area also contains the Sansui (Three Corn Ears} Hall.

Heralding Spring Hall (Dianchun) - built in 1820, the first year of the Emperor Daoguang's reign. From September 1853 to February 1855, it served as the base of the Society of Little Swords (Xiaodao Hui).

Inner Garden - rockeries, ponds, pavilions, and towers, first laid out in 1709 and more recently recreated in 1956 by combining its east and west gardens.

Jade Magnificence Hall (Yuhua) - furnished with rosewood pieces from the Ming Dynasty.

Lotus Pool - with a zigzag bridge and mid-lake pavilion.

Ten Thousand-Flower Tower (Wanhua)

Garden areas are separated by "dragon walls" with undulating gray tiled ridges, each terminating in a dragon's head. It is not clear how closely today's garden resembles its earlier versions.

Riverside Promenade (chinese: 滨江大道)

by sunnywong

The Riverside Promenade runs from Dongchang Road Ferry corssing along the Huangpu River, passing by the Oriental Pearl TV Tower to Taitongzhan Wharf, with a total length of 2,500 m. Standing on the west bank of the river one can see the beautiful Riverside Promenade, called the New Bund of Pudong, which combines a riverside thoroughfare, a waterside terrace, a music fountain and a yacht wharf into an attractive scenic sight. The yacht wharf rebuilt from an old wharf is specially attractive with a giant iron anchor erected high and several mooring columns. The huge fountain spraying water from a hundred fountainheads is fitted with color lights that glitter with brilliance at night. Admission 5RMB (@2002)
