How much would it cost?

by laptopshopper

Hi guys,

I will be in SHanghai for a month starting the mid of Nov. My accommodation has been sorted our by the company which has employed me.
I wanted to get an idea about how much would be sufficient for a single guy who needs the basics such as a phone, comfortable travel (in metro), food (mostly out) and few beer outings on the weekends etc.
All advice appreciated

Cost of living for a month in Shanghai

by Confucius

Around 4000 RMB

RE: RE: How much would it cost?

by emmet7

4000RMB is not enough in my opinion; you could definitely survive with no problems on that amount but you would be scrounging some.

To truly enjoy your time in Shanghai try to budget closer to 8000RMB (USD1000); this would not provide for an extravagant lifestyle but comfortable.

I lived in the French Concession there for over a year. Enjoy!

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Chinese Ming and Qing Furniture

by marsistanbul

Classical Chinese furniture developed from ancient times.The change of the habit of kneeling or sitting cross-legged on a platform to sitting with legs pendant on a stool give rise to the furniture of level height.
The Ming furniture is characterized by a simple and elegant structure with fluent lines and appeling proportions.And the Qing furniture in contrast is larger and more imposing with elaborate carving and inlaid decoration.Both types are of great charms in world furniture by their fine materials,special workmanship and high artistic level.

Maglev Train

by we2364

Now Shanghai has the fastest maglev train in the world.

If you want to get to the airport with 7 mins, from the exit of Long Yang metro station, you should take the maglev train. The highest speed reaches 437km per hour. At least, it's a great experience.

It's an image that Shanghai wants to show the world that it is catching up with the world. However, the technology is designed by Germany which they have not tried in their own country.

Price: 50RMB for one way and 10RMB can be deducted as a discount if you have the airplane ticket of the day.

Next to Long Yang Station of No.2 metro.

The Shanghai Museum

by mikelisaanna

The Shanghai Museum is one of China's top museums, with collections of artistic, cultural, and historic items from all over China. Its collections, which are spead over four floors, include paintings, ceramics, bronzes, coins, jewelry and furniture from many of China's dynastic periods. In addition, the museum has a fascinating collection of costumes, masks, and other items from China's ethnic minorities. Some of our favorite sections were the Ming Dynasty landscape paintings, the ethnic cosumes, the Ming and Qing dynasty furniture, and the ancient coins and currency, which inluded paper money from the 1200s.

Admission is free, but is limited to 5000 people per day. Exect to wait in line for at least 30 minutes for tickets. Senior citizens, tour groups, and handicapped individuals do not have to wait in the line.

Shanghai Museum Sculptures.

by Guantanamera

Displayed here, some large white sculptures that you can see right outside the entrance to the Shanghai Museum... They seem to represent some strange mythological beasts known to the ancients such as dragons, gryphons, basilisks or chimera... Or could it be possible that these creatures were attempts by ancient proto-scientists to understand what dinosaur bones were...??

Pearl of Orient

by gigi_huang

I've been living in Shanghai for 6 years. To tell you the truth, I never felt "love" Shanghai till last night when I brought my friends from Guangzhou to Nan Jing Road and the Bund. It's an amazing spectacle. Although usually I hate crowds, at that moment, I understand what prosperity is. For the first time in my life, I felt proud of Shanghai and I see the hope of China.

I'll take pics of the crowds, the neon lights and the bund next week and put them here. come back later...
