Day Time Things to Do in Shanghai

by kumakuma

Hi, I'll be flying in with several friends but are there actually things to do in the daytime out side of usual (buy fake stuff, the garden+old city, museum). Does anyone know of anything similar to the tricycle tour in Beijing where they take you to the back alleys of old Shanghai?

Sadly, there isn't such a service in Shanghai. In fact, even getting around the city on bicycle is problematic. Some streets do not allow bikes and some streets have bike lanes in only one direction.

Even so, I would heartily recommend visiting a bike shop or bigger supermarket. You should be able to get set up for 500 yuan, including a lock. A bike will give you access to most of central Puxi in about an hour (only the more expensive folding bikes are allowed on the metro).

As for the "things to do" part of your question, this will depend a lot on your personal interests. There's a lot to see and do, although some things are more difficult to find here than elsewhere...like a place to throw a frisbee, or a non-smoking coffee bar.

As soon as you arrive, pick up any of the English-language magazines, such as City Weekend or That's Shanghai, and sift through the listings.

I find Shanghai to be an up front place with not much hidden character. But, of course, what I like, what you like and what the next guy likes are sometimes three very different things.

The concept of old Shanghai is nearly gone. As is becoming true for almost all of China, little remains of the old residences. Beijing holds on better than most cities because their older hutongs have become such a money making attraction. Citizen groups have protested often in several cities about this leveling of historic neighborhoods in favor of high-rise buildings but they have no effect on the powers that be.

Yes, get one of the expat magazines if you want to find a list of weekend entertainment events.

You didn't ask about riding a bicycle but you got a reply about it anyway. Let me mention that Shanghai has the most unruly and crowded traffic I have seen in any city in China. I dare say the one-way lane designation means nothing to most SH motorbike and push bike riders. They even use the footpaths/sidewalks at rather high speeds. You should be an expert at dodging other riders and have nerves of steel if you want to ride any vehicle less than 4 wheels here.

I usually take visitors for a walk in the streets of the French Concession area near school, and so far the response has been pretty good. :)

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Electric Bus

by herzog63

The super long electric buses seemed to be the People Mover of Shanghai. They were always packed with people. I rode them quite a bit myself. The bus system is very extensive and cheap. If you get yourself a good bus map it's also fairly easy to use...the tricky part is knowing when to get out!! hahaa I missed several stops but I was never to far from my intended destination.

New Cross-river Bridge Opens to Traffic in Shangha

by zqboy

The Lupu Bridge spanning the Huangpu River in Shanghai opened to traffic Saturday.

The bridge, the first steel-arch bridge linking the Pudong New District to Puxi, is Shanghai's fourth bridge spanning the Huangpu River.

The six-lane highway bridge is 3,900 meters long, with the main bridge 750 meters. Its 550-meter span is the longest of the world's steel arch bridges.

The construction of the bridge combines the techniques used in the building of stayed-cable bridges, arch bridges and suspension bridges, said Lin Yuanpei, chief engineer of the bridge project.

Construction of the bridge began in October 2000. A total of 35,000 tons of steel were used in the project, equivalent to the materials used in building three 74,000-dwt vessels. The project was built at a cost of two billion yuan (US$240 million).

Qi Pu Lu

by justagirlinasia

There's a wholesale center at Qi Pu Lu... where the basement is full of shoes. So if you're keen on getting shoes.. check out this shopping center. Prices are cheap but if you're a tourist try bring a local friend with you. Go early in the morning i.e. 7am because the chinese are very particular about closing their first sale of the day so you will get a good deal.

bargain. even though the prices are low... try going at 60% of their opening price. get a local, they're more apt at bargaining. if they don't budge, just walk away. they're plenty of stores around.

Bund Sightseeing Tunnel

by Travelchili

This was one of the most unexpected 'modern things' that I came across in Shanghai. When I heard that there is a Bund Sightseeing Tunnel, I imagined a tunnel with some photography or art exhibition on the walls. But I didn't expect to find a little, strange Disneyland down there. OK, it was not quite like that, but we were put into a small transparent compartment and driven through the tunnel while there were millions lights flashing around us. I think it'd be a fun experience for children, but I am not sure about the adults though... unless you've just had a few too many drinks :)

One way RMB 20, roundtrip RMB 30.

Love Shanghai

by WTTWBB

Shanghai is a morden city, developing every second.
Here you can see many beautiful ladies and great scence.
You can enjoy the shopping, and night life is also a shining point of the city.
I love it!
Welcome!
