Budget trip

by mayt

We are a group of 12 who plans to visit Shanghai and Beijing for a period of one week. (3 days Shanghai, 3 days Beijing, plus 1 day allotted for train travel from Shanghai to Beijing). We are on a budget since only 2 people will shoulder for the expenses and our group have 8 children ages 5 to 15 but these kids have already experienced staying in hostels or backpakers place in different countries that also include the 5 year old kid. We are looking for a clean hotel, hostel or backpackers place. Airconditioned room and elevated toilet is a must (not those kind of toilet that is flat on the floor since the children are not used to this kind and they refuse to use it). Our budget is about US$40/room that is near bargain shopping markets, near to MRT and attraction places, in short, City center. We have experienced travelling to China but not Shanghai and Beijing and the US$40/rm per night in Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Dongguan, Zhuhai, Zhongshan,Xiamen, are already good hotels.

There are lots of budget hotels located in downtown area in Beijing and Shanghai. Usually a standard room costs abt $20/night, it's clean and safe. The most renowned ones are Jinjiang Inn, Home Inn, Super8, Motel168. They do have branches located in the center of the city, quite convenient.

Check out their web sites:

Thank you so much for your fast response.

I will take into consideration your suggestions except for the motels. I don't want to book in motels since we have children. Backpackers place for me is a decent place than motels. That is only my opinion. I know that there are 3 star hotels in Shanghai that will only cost about US$40/rm. I just don't know the names and if it is the proper location.

Again, many thanks for your help.

Jinjiang Inn seems a nice place based on the photos that I have seen. Their rate is 289 for twin and 359 RMB for Suite. This is the Shanghai Bund. Sounds good to me. Is this a good location?

I would suggest Shangfu Holiday Hotel, on Nanjing Lu. Otherwise Etour IYH and Hiker IYH. All are well-located.
Please choose somewhere that's close to a metro stop, or else you'll all have trouble trying to take taxis everywhere. You'll have to split into 3 taxis and that can be expensive and inconvenient since you only have 2 adults.

Thank you so much.

Re: Budget trip

Is there a website where I can see information details with photos of the Shang Fu Holiday Hotel?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: Budget trip

I have some candid photos of the hotel exterior and also of one of the rooms -- went in with one of the travellers whom I helped to get a booking at the hotel.
Sorry, don't have time recently to put them up as a tip on my VirtualTourist Shanghai travel page, as I don't like half-baked/rushed work. But if you want, email me at and let me know you want them. Do put "VirtualTourist" and your own username (eg mayt) in the subject line, thanks.

Also the cheapest double bed (1 double bed) room is usually around 250 RMB; twin beds (2 beds) around 280 RMB.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Nostalgia 1 - the old horse-racing ground

by goglobe

People's Square, today an attractive landmark in modern Shanghai, is actually an expansive horse-racing ground similar to the Happy Valley in Hong Kong in the heydays a century ago. Instead of punters and jockeys, now you only see lovely white pigeons dotting the area.

You can still trace the remains of this historic leisure-seeking site, just look at the clock tower behind the Opera House to the right of the pix. This stylish superstructure used to stand proudly on this very large and wide horse racing ground, in full glory.

Gifts from Shanghai

by nomadig about Old Street

If you're interested to bring items that are typically Chinese, go to Shanghai Old Town, Central Fang Bang road that contains remodelled old town shops selling all kinds of touristy gimmicks.

The street is a little tacky, but it can be great fun to browse the shops and try to figure whether some wood carving would fit over the fireplace. Remember, that the items are not antique, only recently made and antiqued.

The street life is also fun to watch, as the cars and scooters are blowing horns to cyclist and walkers, and the whole traffic looks like a chaos to a Westener. There are some restaurants and cafes nearby, including also the omnipresent McDonald's and KFC. The best way to get there is to take a taxi.

Top "all you can" eat Japanese food

by Bob_Shan about Yin (Cherry) Japanese restaurant

Very good quality Japanese food, CNY 198 per person for a "all you can eat" dinner.

The chain has two other branches, one in Shanghai, one in Hokkaido, Japan (see attached picture for details address) All dishes are great

Shanghai Tower

by al2401

The Oriental Pearl is the name given to the Shanghai TV Tower in Pudong. It was built between 1990 - 4 and standing at 468m was the tallest structure in China until the Shanghai World Financial Centre was complete in 2007.

The tower has fifteen observatory levels with the highest at 350m. It is known as the Space Module. The second highest level is in the smaller of the two large spheres located at 267m. There are two main viewing decks in theis sphere. The lower level is at 263m and boasts of a glass floor.

The Oriental Pearl Tower hosts approximatley three million visitors each year.

I am not a great fan of towers - a totally illogical fear, as I can go up in a hot air balloon with no fear at all. I only went up to the 2nd sphere and the view is amazing even with the sun going down on a hazy day. To get the lift for the return trip you have to go down a flight of stairs to the second level at 263m - the one with the glass floor! After conquering my panic and having my photo taken sitting on the glass I returned thankfully to earth.

For all normal people this is a great thing to do while in Shanghai
