Ho(s)tel advice for a 4-night-tourist-stay in August

by Johannes_S

I will be in Shanghai from 7th to 11th of August. So far I don't have any plans, I guess I will do the typical touristical stuff, as I don't have friends over there who can show me the secrets...

Now I need to book a ho(s)tel room. The requirements are
- air condition
- private room (shower can be shared, no problem)
- good location (arriving and departing with Maglev to PVG-airport)
- price shouldn't be higher than 25 Euro / night

I would prefer a hostel with some activities (bar, tours, clubbing etc.), however, I will be more than happy to follow your recommendation for a good hotel!

Thanks in advance,
Johannes

I believe there are not may activities around where the Meglev to the PVG airport is, especially for tourist. If you are only 1 person, you can change to the Metro near where the Meglev is. I believe across the street from the Meglev.

It you are two or more people or have lots of luggage, a Taxi from the airport will be better.

Sorry, I hope someone else recomends a good ho(s)tel and give you directions how to get there.

by Johannes_S

MikeySoft, thanks for your answer!

Maybe I have to clarify: It is not necessary, that the ho(s)tel is near to the Maglev station. I will travel with light luggage, so I'm rather flexible with the location. It is more important that the ho(s)tel is near to the main attractions.

Something funny's going on in Shanghai August 10-12

by Confucius

I can show you the secrets! (Check out my Shanghai page travelogue.) There is a very special annual event taking place in Shanghai during the last 2 days of your visit.

Consider the Pujiang Hotel for your accomodations.

Would a hotel room that's located close to a couple of lively, centrally-located hostels fit your bill? Drop me a VTMail if you're still looking for a place to stay.

ellyse, you have got an email :-)

Travel Tips for Shanghai

When to go?

by rabbit06

Next time we will be spending the month of May in Shanghai as Shirley reckons this is the spring time. We have been in October-November which is the Autumn, really nice weather with a couple of hot days along with a couple of really cold ones and some light drizzle. Our recent trip was September which is the end of summer and so very hot with some great tropical storms to cool things down.....thank you, thank you!!
You may find a Restaurant or two to check out on my pages, but what ever you do, GO explore this magical city and have a great time!!...!!!

Go to a Movie !

by herzog63 about Movie Theater

Check out a Chinese Movie even if you don't speak chinese! There are English movies being shown also,. You can see the Huge Hand-painted Movie posters. I thought they were pretty interesting. Chinese language movies are very , very inexpensive and the snacks are cheap too!

Missing the USA ? Try McDonalds instead.

by MaosRedArmy about Hard Rock Cafe (CLOSED !!!! HOORAY !!!)

UPDATED:

The Hard Rock Cafe has officially closed and been replaced with a Gucci and a Marc Jacobs boutique........This is music to a Shanghai gastronomer's ears becuz the food was haaaaaaaaaaarable and extremely overpriced...... Head to MALONE'S around the corner for the best burgers in Shanghai.

-------------------------

THE ORIGINAL REVIEW:

Compared to Hard Rock Cafes in the States, the food at the Shanghai branch is below average.

Also, the prices are ridiculously high for what you get. Lunch for 4 of us was almost US$100 and all we had was a couple orders of Fajitas, a quesadilla, nachos, and soft drinks (one person ordered 2 cocktails).

I won't ever go back again, as there are way too many better places in Shanghai to eat for a much better price.

If you are absolutely missing the USA, and want to go someplace familiar, then head to the Hard Rock Cafe. Otherwise, it is not worth the visit. Fajitas were OK, but nothing special.

Bund Sightseeing Tunnel

by cheezecake_deli

At the northern end of the Bund is the Bund Sightseeing Tunnel, a 647-metre tunnel under the Huangpu river and a psychedelic way of travelling between the Bund and Lujiazui. Glass capsules transport visitors through the tunnel, with strobe lighting, sound effects and surreal props! A single journey costs RMB40 while a return journey costs RMB50 (2009 prices).
