Cheongsam Tailor

by Nissanmit

Hi, I am dropping by Shanghai in early Dec. Most prob staying at the bund area. I would like to tailor a few pieces of cheongsam. Any one has a good, honest and reasonably priced tailor to recommend? Preferably in town or accessible by metro.Thanks

Re: Cheongsam Tailor

by TheNanyangChinaman

Cheongsam is the term used in HongKong and maybe in Guangdong.
Elsewhere in China it is called the QIPAO.
Sorry I do not have any tailor to recommend, try several tailors to guage the fair price to pay.
Regards.

No specific recommendation, but you should try at the South Bund Fabric Market, at 399 Lujiabang Lu (junction with Nancang Jie). The nearest metro stop is Lujiabang on line 8 (blue). Look on http://www.exploreshanghai.com/metro for an interactive map of Shanghai's metro system.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

The Renminbi (or Yuan)

by machomikemd

the currency of the People's Republic of China. the latest series of Banknotes of the Renminbi are for ¥1, ¥5, ¥10, ¥20, ¥50 and ¥100. The Latest series uses the portrait of Mao Zedong on all banknotes. the coins are 1 and 5 jiao and 1 yuan. Yuan in Chinese literally means a "round object" or "round coin". During the Qing Dynasty, the yuan was a round and silver coin. they are widely available and a caveat, you cannot take out more than 1,000 yuan outside china and the yuan is not an exhangeable foreign currency in countries outside China! the current exchange rate is $ 1 to 6.85 Yuan.

Shopping for traditional Chinese items

by simcard about Shanghai Old Street

If you are looking for some local gifts to bring home for friends and family.. this is probably where u want to go. You can plan this shopping trip on the same day u visit the Yu Garden as the shopping area is right outside of the garden. Here u can find traditional Chinese items such as tea set, Chinese paintings, Chinese dresses, etc.. Make sure you negotiate the price though. I usually cut into 1/10 of what they offer.

Zen and the Art of Eating

by nomadig about Zen

Zen is one of the stylished restaurants in the Xintiandi cluster of upscale restaurants. The interiors are ecletically dark wood and white tiles, and the uniforms of the staff reflect this theme.

The food is somewhat cross-kitchen Shanghainese and the prices are much higher than in most of the Shanghai restaurant. Compared to Europe or the USA, the meals are still cheap. Our portions were okay; nothing was special, but everything tasted good and looked palatable.

The experience suffered a bit from the open door policy of Shanghai -- I've never felt so cold than after leaving this place. If you're visiting on winter, be sure to have enough clothes on you.

The Bund

by xiquinho

Running from Nan Suzhou to Jinling Dong Lu, along the Huangpu River, the 2km-long Bund takes in such famous buildings as Customs House and the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank. Once a towpath to pull barges of rice, the Bund is now a key attraction.

A promenade between the Wusong River and The Old Town. The area bears testimony to Shanghai's great importance earlier in the century when it was a key financial and trading center.

Shanghai

by bsfreeloader

At first blush, 20-million strong Shanghai seems to be a city of two faces: “Old Shanghai,” which is epitomized by the Bund, and “New Shanghai,” which is epitomized by the Pudong cityscape. Like people who are two-faced, Shanghai further seems to be patently dishonest. Whether walking the streets, enjoying a drink along the Bund, or taking in panoramic views of the city from the Oriental Pearl Tower, Shanghai made me feel as if I were a player in a giant shell game. Rome may not have been built in a day, but the Chinese appear hell-bent on building New Shanghai nearly that fast. It’s almost as if Shanghai has an inferiority complex, perhaps spawned by its relative lack of history and recognition as a great world city in comparison to Beijing and Hong Kong. This inferiority complex in turn leads the city to present two faces which fail to accurately capture the city’s essence. That essence lies neither in the superficial glitz of Pudong nor in the manufactured nostalgia and romance of the Bund, but in the backstreets and alleyways of the real Old Shanghai. And by pretending to be something more than it is, Shanghai comes across as something far less. Then again, perhaps the Bund and Pudong do accurately capture the essence of Shanghai as a place where a select few get filthy rich by exploiting the masses and then shamelessly flaunt their wealth.
