[Shanghai] booking train tickets

by Piotrek84

Hi!
I'm arriving in Shanghai Pudong Airport on 20th July at 7:10am and I want to catch a train T211 from Shanghai to Shenzhen at 12:34pm, thanks to maglev and metro getting to railway station on time shouldn't be a problem.
The problem is the ticket. I'm afraid that there will be no hard sleepers left when I get there. Is there any way I could book a ticket and pick it up at the railway station or somewhere else?

Correct time should not be a problem.

If you read Chinese, you could try piao.com
If you speak Chinese, you could try calling that company:
(010)64669968 64669978

Otherwise maybe a friend in Shanghai could help you buy the ticket in advance?

For sure I don't think there would be sleeper tickets left! Have you settled your ticket problem already?

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Visiting Shanghai when Typhoon Morakat was near

by Spookysg

Things have changed in Shanghai, they are preparing for their World Expo next year.
Alot of promo, education of people's behaviour and enviromental too.
Shopping mall is every where and things are not cheap
alot of construction, renovation and new building coming up.

Things to watch out on...

When you can.. try to take the subway. Is easier, clean enough, and safe enough.
compare to taking the local cab, is more exciting with the way the driver drives.
I have 2 closed call when i was on my way to airport.. Once a truck and another time a car.
so if you have a weak heart.. try to skip the cab if you can

Cheap goods in Nanjing Road

by lindyz about Shanghai Underground Markets

We discovered this smaller underground market on Day #1, and went back several times over the week. We actually made friends in here, thats how many times we went back! Seriously, the guy we bought our sunglasses from and another guy I bought my soccer shirts from, every time we would go back, it was like "Hello my friend"

Easy to find, in lower Nanjing Road, closer to the Bund at No. 61 Nanjing Road. Prices here were very reasonable and they were happy to bargain hard. These markets are open from 10am-10pm every day.

Blarney Stone

by mke1963 about Blarney Stone

Around the world there are Irish pubs. It's like a theme....the Dublin McDonalds, as Irish as Boston St Patricks Day bright green beer. Wherever a bloke can find a set of old Guinness posters and get hold of imported Kilkenny, an Irish pub springs up.
In most cases, the tack and Irishness is so crass that it says "this is not how an Irish pub looks" or "This is an Irish Theme Park".
The Blarney Stone is a bit different. Sure (to be sure?) there are plenty of Guinness and Kilkenny adverts, lots of "this is Ireland" kitsch. But this is also a place where you see grumpy old bastards in flat caps sullenly mulling over the days events over a pint. This is local Irish lads, on the up or on the down, playing cards and eying up strangers as they come in from the cold. The floor is grubby, the seats ridiculously overholstered. A iPod plays out all kinds of junk through a huge sound system.
A sad looking man sets up his guitar. The landlord sits with his mates near the TV, looking the unhappiest man on the planet.
You could have walked off the streets of Dundalk on a wet, windy November night and into a local. The Blarney Stone is a very different overseas Irish pub: it looks, feels and is the real thing.
You want service or cherries on a stick in a cocktail, go elsewhere: this is a piece of Ireland dug up and set down in Shanghai. Just the place for a few pints, read the paper and muttering darkly about why doesn't RTE have a worldwide TV news service (ENN?). The steak and kidney pie. Oh yes. Definitely. Vast quantities of gravy in a huge bowl. Expect ten and twenty blackbirds in this one.

Shanghai Museum..underwhelming

by Mez77

The Shanghai Museum is touted to be one of the best museums in the world. Having heard such great things, I couldn't wait to check it out. I'm a big fan of museums and all things historical.

However, I must say I was underwhelmed. It had some very interesting exhibits, but not enough depth. There were whole floors dedicated to calligraphy, or stamps, or coins, but I wanted some real meat...you know..the real history of China in all her Glory.

Perhaps I was expecting too much, but I must say I have enjoyed other less-famed museums much more.

Bustling Shanghai

by trisanna

Shanghai is definately one of the world's most impressive cities. The city is a mix of old and modern architecture that will easily impress you. We spent two days here on our way to Xi'an and wish we had another day or two. Walk along the bund with views of ultra modern Pudong is breath taking. Or take a stroll through the impressive Yuyuan gardens and bazaar.

What i recommend:
-Take a walk day and night on the Bund. Marvel at the archiecture of the past and the future in Pudong.
-Get lost in Yuyuan gardens and bazaar. Sample some yummy local cuisine.
-Study the past in the Shanghai museum
- For the bizarre, take the tourist tunnel from the bund to pudong or vice versa. Also a fast way to get to the other side of the Huangpu river.
-Walk the streets of the French conession area and see the famous European inspired buildings. Look out for some tudor homes and a few with chimneys.
