trip to shanghai

by mike2873

I'll be in Shanghai for 7 days in July together with my two daughters (11,12 years old). I'm trying to find a nice place to stay. a friend of mine recommended that I stay in the pullman shanghai skyway or the Hong Kong plaza serviced apartments
could you please advice me on which one you think is a good place to stay
thanks

thank you ellyse
what about Grand Hyatt Shanghai is it in a good location ?
thanks

Re: trip to shanghai

I would prefer to stay in Puxi instead of Pudong, but the Grand Hyatt's location is acceptable if you don't mind taking the metro every time you want to cross the river.
Are you looking at these hotels because of points accumulation or something?

I agree, stay in Puxi, the west side of Shanghai. This is the older side, the side with some character. Remember, most of Pudong, The East side of the river, did not exist 15 years ago,it is all chrome and glass.

That said, the places to check out are in the Bund area, Jing An or French Concession. My favorites are the City Hotel and Central View Suites Shanghai in the Jing An District. The latter is especially nice for its Asian decor and relatively low price. There are good Chinese restaurants with English menus nearby. Let me recommend Bi Feng Tang, obe of my favorites.

It is easy and cheap to get a taxi to the many tourist sites in Shanghai. It is also close to the subway, which is cheap, quick and easy to figure out.

Still not a very favourable location, I'd say not much better compared to the other two.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Silky Dreams

by nomadig about Silk King

China is one of the best places to buy silk and Shanghai is no exception. The silk can be bought as a fabric or readymade garment, if you don't know how to make clothes by yourself.

Silk King is a multistorey silk and wool shop on the busy shopping street Nanjing Road. There are several different qualities of silk and cashmere wool available, in all the colours of the rainbow + black and white. The store has also several branches around the city.

Unfortunately, all the material is not what it looks like and some fabrics are advertised as silk, but are something artificially fabricated. If you don't know the difference -- in other words, you are buying for your wife or girlfriend -- be careful. The staff doesn't speak good English, or English at all, so you may end up buying something that you really didn't want to purchase.

If you have more time to spend, I'd suggest to go to Dongjiadu cloth market for better bargains.

Starbucks in Shanghai

by meteorologist1 about Starbucks Coffee

In Shanghai, you're not far from great freshly brewed coffee. There are lots of coffee places, some foreign and some domestic. You can find the familiar Starbucks at the Chenghuang Temple, located among the traditional Chinese architecture as seen in the picture.

The Financial Tower aka "Jin Mao Da Sha"

by xuessium

The building's shape draws on traditional Chinese forms, especially the tiered pagoda.
- The tower is designed to withstand an earthquake of 6 on the Richter scale and the strongest level of typhoon.
- The hotel atrium starts at the 53rd floor and extend upwards to the 87th floor. It has a clear height of 152 meters and a diameter of 27 meters, making it one of the tallest atriums in the world.
- Currently the tallest building in the People's Republic of China and the fifth tallest in the world.

It is unlikely you can enter for a look as security is tight but it is still worthwhile working around the perimeter.

Shanghai

by Steveharley

Had the opportunity to visit Shanghai on two occasions and even manged a couple of days off to play. Stayed at the Sheraton Tai Ping Yang this time
As my last visit was in June I just caught the beginning of the rainy season and Shanghai was pretty drippy. Did some of the obvious touristy things. Bund, Tunnel under the river (peoples tunnel?), Oriental Pearl, bought a kite and and got my camera stolen just coming out of the subway onto Peoples park .....now matter how long you travel you can always do with the occasional lesson! It took some persistance but I managed to get a theft report from the Shanghai Police based in the park - entirely in Manadarin - made my insurance company laugh.

Also met the MOST persistent street trader I have ever met, he managed to clean my shoes as I was walking along despite the NO, NO NO...

Loved the food, loved the little street markets and the chaos of the old town. Can't wait to visit again - next time in the sunshine

"Mag Lev"

This is an experience not to miss. Get a cab to the central Mag Lev station and take this fantastic ride to the airport. It reaches 400+ km per hour and swishes you to the airport in a few minutes. The cost is arround $10USfor a first cass seat - great fun, almost went back into town just to do it again.....
