1st Time To China - Price of Silks & Others

by Azri_Azmi

Hi, I will travel to Shanghai on this coming September. Date is on the 20th. Well, some of my family member here begins to ask about buying them the China Silks or Korean Silks if any.

Just wondering how much will silks cost there in Shanghai? Is it really cheap? Worth buying? Type of silks wanted are those that can make dress, like 3 to 5 metres. How much it cost per meter?

Also would like to know the best and cheapest place to buy souvenirs that indicate China trademark.

Thank you.

Shanghai Suzhou silk souvenir shopping

by Confucius

I would advise you to make a short trip to Suzhou before buying any silk in Shanghai. It is easy to make a day trip there by train. I am not a silk trader, but have heard from those familiar with silk that Suzhou is one of the best places in China to buy silk.
You can buy souvenirs at Yuyuan Bazaar in Shanghai, but you should also check prices at Suzhou's Shiquan Street near Renmin Road. (Renmin Road is also where you will find many of Suzhou's bigger silk shops.)

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Happy Circus in Shanghai Circus World

by flyer31

Although this is more meant for children, starting typically at 14h00 on Saturday / Sunday only (and only in some months - when the troup is "at home" Shanghai), this circus from my point of view include the nicest acrobatics in Shanghai and with extremely high quality. I see it nearly every year when I come here, and it always changes. Typically it includes several very impressioning clown-artistic points, very nice and funny dog shows, they also had two nice bears this time and a small dancing horse and 3 great young white tigers plus two great young lions, and a very impressioning praerie horse riding with acrobatics on the back of the horses. All the presentations are more intended to bring you to laugh also and the animals look very perfect and are handled nicely. Typically the presentations seem to be never sold out (which is strange - they really have such high quality). So you can just go there and buy a ticket before the presentation starts - it is not in the big dome, but in a smaller tent-type theater called "Medium theatre" in Shanghai Circus world (on Metro line 1). The image enclosed is a bit misleading - the strongest attraction are the clown-acrobats as to be expected for a Chinese circus, but all the animal presentation really also are world-class.

Information about presentation times is available at under "Acrobatics and Circus".



Cheap and convenient, gets crowded during the peak times though.
Currently there are 3 metro lines, 1 pearl line and 1 magnetic line which connects podong centre with Pudong Internatioanl Airport.
More lines will be built in the near future.

Recapture Shanghai's past glories at The Bund!

by xuessium

The old Shanghai in new Shanghai. Come and see all the old colonial buildings left behind by the British and French when Shanghai was a very International City back in the 1930s where foreign powders rubbed shoulders in Shanghai. The panaroma of architecture is stunning. Take a stroll along the Huangpu River bank and admire the Pearl Tower across the river at Lujiazhui, Pudong - the new downtown of Shanghai and marvel at the faces of Shanghai, old and new.

A harbour cruise

A harbour cruise was definately the call. After spending 5 months in northern China and being
the avid sailor that I am, I had to get out on the water. This is the lighthouse where the Huang Pu river meets the Yangzi River.

Jade Buddah Temple

by traveloturc

"Buddha Statues"

The two precious jade Buddhist statues are not only rare cultural relics but also porcelain artworks. Both the Sitting Buddha and the Recumbent Buddha are carved with whole white jade. The sparkling and crystal-clear white jade gives the Buddhas the beauty of sanctity and make them more vivid. The Sitting Buddha is 190 centimeters high and encrusted by the agate and the emerald, portraying the Buddha at the moment of his meditation and enlightenment. The sedate face shows the peaceful mood of Sakyamuni when he left this world.
The Sitting Buddha is in the Jade Buddha Tower

"Lying Buddah"

The Recumbent Buddha is 96 centimeters long, lying on the right side with the right hand supporting the head and the left hand placing on the left leg, this shape is called the 'lucky repose'.
In the temple there is also another Recumbent Buddha which is four meters long and was brought from Singapore by the tenth abbot of the temple in 1989.

"the Temple"

Although the history of the Jade Buddha Temple is not very long, the old-time and classical architectural style makes the temple unique and inimitable in this modern city.

"the wishing pot"

The giant wishing pote is situated in the courtyard of the temple

"Wooden carves"

The Jade Buddha Temple is a good place to go whether you are a Buddhist or not, the peaceful and transcendent atmosphere adds a kind of richness to our busy modern society.

"Inside the Temple"

Furthermore there are many other ancient paintings and Buddhist scriptures distributed in the different halls of the temple.
