yixing teapots

by sobresaliente

Could anybody recommend a good shop for buying yixing teapots, where the quality will be good and the prices will be good as well?
I've seen everything from pots for 10Y on the streets of Suzhou (which I assumed were fake) to 1,000Y pots in the arts and crafts museum here in Shanghai, which I'm assuming were the real deal, but that's certainly a lot more than I was hoping to spend!
(Is bargaining permitted here in the arts and crafts museum, by the way? Saw lots of nice stuff there, but all with very high price tags.)
Thanks!

Thanks for your kind offer. I don't think I will have time to make it there, though, before my trip ends.

I am just looking for one authentic yixing teapot, with a nice design, to use for brewing tea when I return back home.

I am hoping there is somewhere here in Shanghai where I can pick one up.

Hmmm. No particular recommendation but you might want to try the Tea Market on Tianshan Lu.

The director of the International Department at East China Normal University is a very serious collector of teapots. I am ashamed to show him the 25 that I have collected. He prefers a connoisseur's market that is about 2 blocks west of the Zhong Shan Road Metro station. I can't give you the exact building name but I'm sure if you get a taxi near that stop, the driver will know where it is. You'll need Mandarin skills or an interpreter as this is not a tourist spot.

I should have said Zhong Shan Park Metro stop.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

The Shanghai Metro

by goglobe

Just about 5 years ago, Shanghai has been served with a convenient and user-friendly metro system. Clean, cheap, efficient and fast, the 2 metro lines reach all four directions of the city, including Pudong area.

Notice though the last service is sometime around 11 pm. Here I'm waiting stupidly for a service before realising the last train had just gone.

For north east region communter, they are further served by an open air Light Rail system, currently serving 5 stations connecting the Shaghai Railway Station.

Cool Local Bar/Restaurant

by cheezecake_deli about People 7

If you tire of Xintiandi, this is a good place to go for nocturnal drinks (alcoholic or otherwise) and nibbles. It's slightly difficult to find, and the entrance is deliberately discreet and cryptic - you'll have to solve a puzzle to get in. Once you've found the solution, the front door opens magically to reveal a multi-room bar/restaurant. Drinks and food cost roughly the same as the bars in Xintiandi, and it's less of a "meat market" compared to Xintiandi. The loo doors can be equally confusing to work out. I shan't spoil your fun, but think airlines! Smart casual.

Shintori Restaurant - Ying3 Qi1

by imstress about Shintori Restaurant

Be sure to get the passcode for the day when you make your reservation to Shintori Restaurant. (passcode for that day was 69 - we have to put our hand into 6 & 9 before the correct door to the restaurant opened. Else the other side of the door opened and you will bang right into the mirror if you walk that way)

And did I mention that you must go to the toilet as soon as you get the urge. By the time you find the toilet door and attempt to open it, you may have a big surprise of your life awaiting you ;p

Shintori is a "chain" of seven restaurants - 4 of which are located in Taipei and 3 in Shanghai.

See MaosRedArmy Restaurant Tips, because we went there together with we2346. Thin sliced fish in special sauce

Aspragus

SHangHAI

by Sobe-A-Rush

My very first 3 days in China were spent here in this city. I did not see much of the city in those 3 days as i spent most of the time in and around the hotel getting used to things. In August 2005 I spent 5 days here and got to see bits and pieces of the city. Not as much as i wanted to.

A very busy city with everything to offer, from great shopping to a great night life. Definitly check out the harbour at night time when you are here.

Our flight from Shanghai to Beijing got delayed by 24 hours because of the typhoon coming through. Over all im pretty happy that it did happen as i had to experience my first typhoon. Here are some Typhoon Pics

And a few Random pictures from around the city.
