Need opinions on Shanghai Itinerary

by aznaphrodite

I will be in Shanghai for one full day and have a flight home at 4:10 pm the following day. I've made a list of things we would like to do based on previous topics and reading reviews.

Can you give me your opinion on the following itinerary? Do you think it is a reasonable about of time to see everything on my list? Any suggestions on changing the order? Is arriving at the Pudong airport 2 hours prior to my flight enough time?

Day 1:
- Yu Garden, Yu Yuan Bazaar, Teahouse, & Old Town
- Nanjing Lu Pedestrian Mall (goes from Bund to People's Square)
- Bund (Peace Hotel, see Fodor's)
- Bund Sightseeing Tunnel (ride from Bund to Pudong Side)
- Oriental Pearl Tower
- Jade Buddha Temple
- 7:30 pm: Shanghai Acrobatic Troupe at Shanghai Center Theater

Day 2:
- Shanghai Museum & People's Square
- Xintiandi & Shikumen (Stone gatehouse) Museum
- 2 pm: Pudong Airport to fly home

Thanks in advance!!

I would add one thing to your itinerary. Take the Maglev train from the Longyang Road Maglev Station to Pudong Airport. It is the fastest train in the world, and your literally float on a magnetic field (the train has no wheels). We hit a top speed of over 430 km/hr.

It is a busy schedule and maybe a little tight. I would cut the Jade Buddha. The temple is not very impressive. Be sure you are AT the airport at 2PM, and do take the Maglev.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Pudong Airport

by ahoerner

If you take the MagLev train just for curiosity and fun, you will end up at the Pudong Airport... so get off the train and take a walk in this modern and beautiful airport...

After that you can take the MagLev back to the city.

By Boat ...

by Tal_A

By Boat --------------------------------------------
Boats running between Shanghai and Hong Kong (2 1/2 days) and Shanghai and Japan dock at Waihongqiao Harbor (1 Taiping Lu). Tickets can be booked through China International Travel Service (CITS; Guangming Building, 2 Jinling Lu, tel. 021/6321-7200).
Most domestic boats leave from the Shiliupu Dock (Zhongshan Dong Lu just south of the Bund) for such destinations on the Yangzi (Changjiang) River as Wuhan, Chongqing, Nanjing, Wuhu, and Jiujiang, as well as for such coastal cities as Guangzhou, Qingdao, Dalian, Ningbo, and Fuzhou. Overnight boats for the outlying island of Putuoshan leave every other day; a faster boat leaves daily, but the overnight boat is more practical. All domestic tickets can be purchased at the foreigner ticket booth on the 2nd floor of the Boat Ticket Booking Office (1 Jinling Dong Lu), as well as at China International Travel Service (see above). River passenger transportation information can be obtained by calling 021/6326-1261.

There's a wide range of boats, although most domestic boats are not luxurious. They do, however, offer different levels of berths, the most comfortable being first class.

take a walk at the bund.

by D_major

The symbol of old and new Shanghai, the Bund (officially known as Zhongshan Lu) is Shanghai¡¯s most famous landmark. The ¡°Bund¡± is from an Anglo Indian term meaning the muddy embankment on the waterfront, and it is the Huangpu River which helps create the uniquely colonial feel here and provides a feeling of space and openness which is lacking elsewhere in the city. Four kilometers long, the Bund has long been one of the most important areas in Shanghai. In the 1930s, the row of buildings was host to the city¡¯s financial and commercial centers and the world¡¯s greatest banks and trading empires established a base here.

At the North end of the Bund and just over Waibadu Bridge and Suzhou Creek is what was formerly the British embassy. Also here is a large and atmospheric blue painted building which is the Russian Embassy, sitting precariously on the bank of the river. In colonial times, the Bridge was guarded by Japanese and British sentries marking the boundaries of territory.

On the ¡°British side¡± of the bridge is the entrance to Huangpu Park. More of a pedestrian walkway than a conventional park, this area was also under the control of the Brits. The British Public Park (as it was once known) was forbidden territory to Chinese people for years, unless they were accompanying employers. Today, the park is free and open to all and is a well- maintained walkway providing excellent views over the river to Pudong and down river to the old Customs House and other colonial relics.

On the west side of the Bund tower various buildings of different architectural styles including Gothic, baroque, and Romanesque. The combination of these creates a unique boulevard, which resembles the Liverpool Docks and 1920s New York.

Today, the Bund is still home to many of the city's hotels, bars and banks. The nature of the area has not changed so dramatically either. Huge western banks and office buildings dominate the horizon of the Bund, emphasizing the role the city plays as a commercial and financial base.

Eastern Pearl Television Tower

by Amareyui

I don't know if the construction of an observation/television/tourist multi-purposes tower has become a trend or not, but why can't the designers come up with some object that's easier to the eyes?
I know a tower has certain limitations such as what shape it can be, be the one thing it doesn't have to be is a concrete stick with three pink round shape "pearls" being pierced through it. At the very least, colour the concrete part so the tower doesn't look mostly grey.
As much as I don't like this tower, an astonishing fact that can't be denied is that many people do, especially the locals. They embrace it and announce the symbolically good fortune "Eastern Pearl" as the logo of the new Shanghai. In response to its supporters, everyone has to pay at least $50RMB just to get inside. To anyone who just wants to take a peek inside and doesn't care about going up to the observation decks, listen to what the entrance personnel has to say, "You have to pay to get inside. Period."
It is a shame that the Effiel Tower, which is built more than a century ago, looks more modern and artistic than this sad looking stick. Come to think of it, the Shanghai government should order the construction of a similar looking tower by the "Eastern Pearl" side, and collectively names them the Chopstick Towers instead.

Price list:
50RMB- To the second observation deck
70RMB- To the second observation deck plus the exhibition halls
100RMB- To the third observation deck (the highest one), and all the other decks and halls
