Shanghai trip- Mum with 2 kids only

by Seet

I will be going to Shanghai with 2 kids ( 13 & 10) and will be spending 12 days there while my hubby is on business trip there. I would appreciate if sb can advise the following:

(1) What is the weather like from 13 Dec to 25 Dec?

(2) This is the first shanghai trip for both kids, I would like to bring them to some places of interests and as I will be alone with both of them, would it be advisable to join day trips. Where should we go? Should I book it from Singapore (via internet) or book it there?

(3) Is it worthwhile paying Hanzhou a trip over the weekend? is it better to have day trip or at least a night stay and which hotel would you receommend?

(4) Would you be able to recommend some nice hotels which serves christmas eve dinner buffets. I undersand the good one must be booked way in advance. Mid -range price will be good ( around RMB 200)

(5) any other advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Seet

Sure, you should visit Hangzhou. It's my most favorite city in China. I recommend you to stay at least one night. I'll stay more if I were you.
Since you don't 12 days, you can do a lot side travels to Suzhou, Zhouzhuang, Tongli etc.

1. cold for people coming from south.
2. shanghai is a pretty convenient city for sight seeing and i don't think you need such a guide. you may take some day tours at shanghai stadium.
3. definately you are recommended to stay overnight at hangzhou. it' s a low season during the period you visit, the best is hangzhou hyatt hotel but one of the most expesive; or xihu state guest house;
4.usually christmas eve dinner buffet served with shows and lucky draw at nice hotels, therefore price will bu much more than rmb200.

1) Around freezing point, also quite humid/damp (but less so than Singapore).
2) I'll offer to guide you around, if you want. I'm studying here and in my final year, thus I have quite a lot of spare time. What are your kids more interested in? Are they more introvert or extrovert?
3) I'd recommend an overnight stay for Hangzhou. I've visited many times and it's my favourite city in China, out of all those that I've visited so far. What kind of budget are you looking at for a hotel? I presume you need a triple room?
Feel free to ask anything else you need to know. I've been studying here for about 3.5 years and have travelled extensively around China, particularly the region around Shanghai.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Miscellaneous notes

by stmlnyc

Not exactly a local custom but finding an Internet cafe can be a challenge, most are
not on the ground floor and signs are in Chinese. The ones I did see were all packed, was told the rate is about 4-6 RMB an hour. Avoid the higher end hotel business centers if you're on a budget, the charge can be as high as 1 yuan a minute with a 20 yuan minimum.

Also, there s a wide range of prices for many items so shop around for the right price (don t
understand why foreign cigarettes are so much cheaper than domestic ones).

Didn t stay at hostels but 2 decent options seem to be the Shanghai Aster Pujiang Hotel as low as 63 RMB a night and Captain
Hostel---great location near the Bund as low as 62 RMB.

Pudong to Puxi - take the ferry!

by xuessium

Take the ferry if you intend to cross the Huangpu Jiang from Pudong to Puxi - it merely costs 1RMB! It was more of a floating barge than a real ferry - you can actually cross the river with your bicycle! The journey takes only like less than 5 minutes.

There are quite a few points along the river where you can ride these barge ferries.

Temple of the Jade Buddah

by Anjin-san

The Jade Buddha Temple is a Buddhist temple in Shanghai, China. As with most modern Chinese Buddhist temples, the current temple draws from both the Pure Land and Chan traditions of Mahayana Buddhism. It was founded in 1882 with two jade Buddha statues imported to Shanghai from Burma by sea. These were a sitting Buddha (1.95 metres tall, 3 tonnes), and a smaller reclining Buddha representing Buddha's death. The temple now also contains a much larger reclining Buddha made of marble, donated from Singapore, and visitors may mistake this larger sculpture for the original, smaller piece.

During the rule of emperor Guang Xu in the Qing Dynasty (1875-1908), Hui Gen, an abbot from Mount Putuo went on a pilgrimage to Tibet via the two famous Chinese mountains Mount Wutai and Mount Emei. After Tibet, he arrived in Burma. Whilst there, Mr. Chen Jun-Pu, an overseas Chinese resident in Burma, donated five Jade statues of Buddha to Hui Gen, who transported two of them back to Jiang-wan, Shanghai. Here Hui Gen had a temple built with donated funds, and died shortly thereafter. This temple was occupied during the 1911 uprising, and the statues were moved to Maigen Road.

An Abbot by the name of Ke Chen later had a new temple built on land donated by a Mr. Shen. The construction took ten years, and lasted from 1918-1928. Ke Chen also invited Reverend Di Xian from Tian Tai mountain to come and lecture on Buddhism in a magnificent ceremony.

In 1956, a ceremony was held at the temple by the Shanghai Buddhist Association to celebrate the 2500th anniversary of Gautama Buddha's enlightenment.

In 1966, during the Cultural Revolution, the monks made a living by selling handicrafts.

In 1983, Shanghai Institute of Buddhism was established at the temple under the Shanghai Buddhist Association.

In 1985, Monk Zhizhi Xuan and others made a trip to Dunhuang via Xinjiang. Shortly after their return, regular scripture lectures, meditation and other features of temple life were resumed.

Mag-lev train

by bonio

This is the cuting edge of technology, many countries have tried and given up, this is running for 32 Km takes just 7 minutes. 430 Km/h is the maximum speed reached on the in-carriage speed indicator, we think that's around 270 miles an hour. Runs to Pudong Airport, take the trip just for the experience, an unforgettable train journey.

After visiting Shanghai as part of a study tour, I returned a year later when staying in China for my graduation project. Definitely the most western city in China. Not only the European influences in the cities building styles, also the western live styles have been adapted in Shanghai. Not the city to visit when you want to see China, but imrpessive and a good place to stay over for a few days whe travelling for a longer period of time.
