Shanghai enlightenment

by Confucius

1. Yes, you'll find adequate English speakers throughout Shanghai.
2. Yes. The original Gong De Lin restaurant is in Shanghai.
3. Hot.
4. Suzhou and Tongli are good excursions from Shanghai.

1. Yes. However be warned that most of the people who you'll encounter on the street who speak English to you are scammers, whether you think they are or not.
2. Yes.
3. Hot and humid. Around 25-35 degrees Celsius.
4. Goodness, read a guidebook(s) or online! It's difficult to give a good, suitable answer if we don't know what you're interested in and what you like! One man's meat is easily another's poison.

HI! Yama:

Just a note: Chinese vegetarian is quite different from Indian vegetarian. I had colleagues who dislike them, finding them "bland and tasteless", having used to the spicy (as in lots of spices) version back home.

English is really not that widely spoken - though they are people who speaks them. Do look out for con artists though, as already warned by a fellow VTer in an earlier post.

Suggest that you take a look at the Top 5s for SH in VT? That'll greatly help you I am sure.

RE: RE: Language / food queries

As pointed out by previous posters, English is not widely spoken. In the touristy areas hotel reception staff and shopkeepers will know a bit of English. Also scammers, of course.

And I recently also found that the ticket sales person on the metro station also managed some English. In the metro signs are also in English, so if you know where you want to go there is no prob at all.

But there are also others ways to cope.
1. When arriving in Shanghai, make sure you have the hotel address in Chinese with you.
2.Make use of the business cards available. Most places like hotels and restaurants have business cards with the name and the address on them. Make use of these, especially your hotel's card will come in handy if you want to take a taxi back to the hotel. You can also use this way to get to a place you like, if you have the card for a place close enough for you to walk.
3. Ask the reception staff or the concierge staff at your hotel write down destination names in Chinese for taxi drivers (or for getting help to get to the destination). Also when taking a taxi from your hotel, the concierge will instruct the driver in Chinese.
4. When speaking English, speak slowly and use the most common words, and use your hands to help explain what you mean.

Should you get into trouble, try asking the younger people around, as many of them speak English.

Also do try to learn at least a few words (like thanks and hi) in Chinese as that will really make people happy here and help you get what you want/need.

Enjoy your time in Shanghai!

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Chinese Circus and Acrobatics

by ThomasWolff

Do not miss the magnificent Circus and Acrobatic shows in Shanghai. I saw three of them, ERA in Circus World, Acrobatics Show in Lyceum Theatre and Happy Circus in Circus World. All of them very breath-taking and very different - each one a must to see if you are long enough in Shanghai. ERA more Chinese music, Happy Circus + Acrobatics show more mixed music. Happy Circus takes longest time and also includes stunning animal shows with horses, dogs, bears, lions and tigers. Furthermore I would have liked to look at the Kung Fu shows - but time ran out, not enough evenings available during my time in Shanghai. Quite strange that it was easy to get tickets shortly before the shows - but this was in March and maybe in summer this is different. All these shows would probably be sold-out anywhere else than Shanghai.

Go to the homepage http://www.culture.sh.cn/english/ and then select the item "Acrobatic&Circus" - there you get an overview of the current shows in the different places in the city. Just the pictures given there are far less spectacular than the shows.

Travelling on the Shanghai Metro

by thescene

This is best way to travel around Shanghai. It's cheap, fast and you don't need to deal with the language barrier which you may encounter with a cab or a bus. Just like any multi line metro system, you need to have a map of the whole system which you can pick up at your hotel or at the hotel. JUst know which station you are going to and figure out which line it's on and you are set.

Ticket vending machines are in English and all you need to do is touch the station you want to go on the screen and select the number of tickets you will purchase. Be sure to have coins or bills in small denominations to facilitate quick purchases.

The Metro is usually very crowded so you should be wary of people who might take advantage to pick you pocket so be carefull of your valuables.

Huang Pu Jiang

by sha08ron

Take a slow cruise along Huang Pu Jiang for a good view of Shanghai's beauty. One one side of the river shows its colonial buildings and on the other side stands all the modern build such as Oriental Pearl Tower.

French Parasol Tree

by Amareyui

In Shanghai, if you accidentally bump into a tree, and still luckily have your head intact, please remember that nine out of ten tree in Shanghai is: the French Parasol tree.
Why does a tree that has its roots in Shanghai be named French Parasol tree? A widely believed theory was that the first of such tree was planted in the French Concession, thus began the misunderstanding of the French connection.
The Parasol tree along Shanghai's roads were mostly originated from Kunming, Yunnan. These Chinese Parasol trees have no relation with France whatsoever.
The best looking Chinese Parasol trees, according to the elder Shanghainese, are planted along Hengshan Lu.

"Bund Sightseeing Tunnel"

Tunnel visitors will be transported in the automatic, unmanned, cable-towed, and closed-type carriages of the advanced technology of the nineties. It takes about 2.5 to 5 minutes to make a one-way ride across the River.
