Bast map of Central Shanghai?

by gdeering

Dear all,

I'm looking for a map, preferably in English, that has a detailed layout of central Shanghai. I bought the Periplus map, but I'd like one that is larger and is more detailed (in street names, not places of interest).

On line there is an '90's map that has all of the factories that used to exist in/ around Shanghai, including a "tube" factory, as an audiophile I'd love to see if that still exists (99.999% sure it's no longer there - though the audio tube industry is growing)

Anyway, If a map exists, and it's only available in Shanghai, that's OK.

Thanks,


Gregg

I'm not sure this is what you are looking for but just so happens, one of my shanghai transportation tips has links to several online maps.

One is for the metro with metro stops in English and Chinese. A few streets are also named.

It also has a link for a street map. It has several streets with name in English and Chinese. However many of the smaller streets don't have the names listed.

Once you are in Shanghai, there are many maps you can buy, mostly in Chinese. They even sell them on the Metro.

Thanks Mikeysoft,

I'll probably get one in Shanghai,

For reference this is the one I found from Shanghai's more industrial days (ca. 1991)

It may look small at first, but it's a big map and a long download.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

To buy paints

by bdelphin

If you want to buy some chinese paints, or vases or so one, there are some galleries in YuYuan. Some students will ask you to follow them to visit their gallery. Go!. Most of the time they copy very famous chinese paints. As most of us cannot afford to buy real ones, it's a good way to buy some cheap pieces.
There is also a gallery (i mean there was one in 2000) on the first floor of the big building on the main square. I don't know the name, but this one sell original pieces. It's not too expensive, and the quality is better.

By the way, i like very much this artist. If anybody knows his name, please let me know... Paints, vases 1000 - 3000 yuan

Don't expect anything special...

by Manojb

Don't expect anything special food on the mountain because of the difficulty in arranging for the preparation,Food is expensive and so so,but down the Mountain,in the town or city u can try some delicious dishes,we tried Huangshan Rabbit,Country Chicken soup and some birds,I don't remember.

The Bund

by traveloturc

The Bund is the best-known landmark in Shanghai. On this stretch of Zhongshan Road East lies the most important buildings left from colonial Shanghai including the Peace Hotel, the Bank of China, and Shanghai Gold Exchange. Externally these buildings have been well preserved and stand proud in their original grandeur. Internally they have been renovated to house some major financial institutions as well as Shanghai's most expensive and luxurious hotels, restaurants and bars.

"Shanghai - Xintiandi"

Shanghai - Xintiandi

Shanghai is a city I have been in many times now. I like it a lot and it has its charm, either on a sunny day or whenever when it gets dark and teh neonlight city comes to live.

Here is a picture from Xintiandi, which I manage to visit for the first time ever today.
This area is situated 2 blocks south of HuaiHai (Dong) Lu (Dong = middle) just to the east of the North South elevated.

Xintiandi is a small area, divided into two sections. Its filled with restaurants and bars and seems to be pretty populated most of the day and evening.

I went there to have a dinner at this place in the evening and ended up in a nice restaurant with live music. The singers were really good and my guess is that they were Fillipinos (as many of them are).

Its a nice evening life there and pretty crowded with a nice mix of Chinese and foreigners.

"Shanghai - Nan Jing Lu (Dong and Xi)"

Most tourists end up in Nanjing Lu. Its divided into two sections Nan (west) and dong (east). Nanjing Dong Lu is maybe the most famous walking street in Shanghai. You have a lot of stores here and most tourists end up here sooner or later. The picture is from this street. There are different things to buy here and I could especially recommend buying pearls. About 300 meters from The peoples squareon the left hand side there is something called Pearl City. You take the escalator one floor up and then in front of you, you have a store called Daxi Pearls. (When i was here in April it was renovated so almost all shops were in the same place.) Daxi Pearls have authentic pearls and I have not seen any fake. The price indicated are not of any interest for you more that just showing what is more or less expensive. Expect at least to get 80% discount on displayed price.

One of the negative things about thsi street is taht you have many people tryongto sell you things, bags, watches or simlar. Some offer "ladies massage" and that is nothing more that an offer of buying sex so stay away. If you like massage, there are plenty of good places around with decent and real massage.

If you are a male you may also experience females approaching you and claiming they "want to practice their English". I was naiive the first time to belive that was the case. But then they want to go and have a coffe and then its probably somethning else. If you ask them what they do there they are most likely on Holiday or visiting a friend. Know they only want to provide services of sexual nature.

Nanjing Xi Lu is not a walking street as there are traffic there as well. This street is also veryu long and you have all kinds of shops there. Anything from cheap faked clothes to buying a Ferrari :-)
On 580 Nanjing Xi Lu you have a fake market. You enter the building from the street side and up the escalator one floor and you have all kinds of stuff, Like Armani, Boss, North Face, Peak, Canada Goose and so on. This is one of two places I know. The other market for faled clothes are located in the subway station "Shanghai Science and Technology Museum" on line 2. Its located between the subway level and the ground level on the right hand side if you come from the city with subway.
