Any idea how should i plan my trip from hk to shanghai?
I am new to VT. Me and a group of friends (all students) are planning our trip to go HK and Shanghai. You all have any ideas what's the most budget way to go from Hk to Shanghai? Can we book our train ticket online? Or should we take a sleeper bus and drop at various stops along the way from HK to Shanghai? How do i book a sleeper bus then? Then where should we go? We most prob wanna shop. haha.. Kindly advise.
Cheap trip from Hong Kong to Shanghai?
First you should check the cost of a one way flight from Shenzhen to Shanghai.
If you can get an airline ticket for less than 600 RMB, then that's probably a better deal than train or bus. You can ask the China Travel Service kiosk at the China Ferry Terminal in Tsim Sha Tsui. They can also book the ferry for you to go from Hong Kong to Shenzhen airport (Fuyong).
Of course you could all just "sleeper bus" your way to Shanghai from Shenzhen, but how much time are you budgeting?
You would start your journey in Shenzhen, where you can get a sleeper bus to Chaozhou for about 100 RMB. From there you can get to Xiamen for about the same price. From Xiamen you can then take the train to Shanghai for about 300 RMB, so that's how you could possibly go from Shenzhen to Shanghai for about 500 RMB.
Travel Tips for Shanghai
Visit the 9 storey pagoda in Suzhou
This temple is supposed to be the tallest south of the Yangtse. It was built in 3rd AD but has since been rebuilt many times.The climb up to the tower is quite steep but it is well worth with its Morrocan style "window" openings. The view is also quite good once you get up although it was pretty windy when we were there.
The gardens around the pagoda are quite magnificent. Go to the back of the pagoda and take a right side opening.
Cost 25 Yuan

Here in Lujiazui, the tall Oriental Pearl Tower stands next to the Marine Museum with interesting displays and activities inside. All over Shanghai now, you find the newest and colourful taxis, including one golden yellow cab on the left corner of the pic here.
The Old Chinese City, to the...
The Old Chinese City, to the south of the Bund, was a walled fishing town when the British arrived in 1843. Modern Shanghai grew up around it. It used to be a maze of tiny alleys, but much of it has been torn down and rebuilt in recent years. The widened alleys are still crowded with tourists, domestic and foreign. The old city wall which once contained it has long since been demolished, but one gate remains on Renmin Lu. The southern portion of the Old City contains sprawling street markets of bric-a-brac and souveniers, while to the north lies the newly constructed 'Shanghai Old Street' with lots of shops selling antiques, both genuine and otherwise.
At the center of the Old City are the Chenghuang (City God) Temple, the Yu Garden, and the Huxining Teahouse, said to be the model for the design on the 'willow-pattern' plates much loved by Europeans in another era. The Bridge of Nine Turns zigzags to make it difficult for evil spirits to get across (evil spirits, as is well known, have problems with corners). The Yu Garden is a classical Qing Dynasty garden with over 30 pavilions linked by a maze of corridors and bridges over ponds.
Western-style hardware Store
"B&Q Hardware Store"
This store is a British chain of hardware stores. There are two (2) in Shanghai.
It look very similar to the HomeDepot hardware stores in the U.S.
They have a security guard guarding the front entrance and they don't permit backpacks into the store. Fortunately they have lockers near the entrance that you can use. It cost about 1 RMB.
They even have the orange work aprons like HomeDepot.
I went to this hardware store to fix our wheelchair. A bolt that held part of the front wheel to the frame came off off when we left Beijing.
I found a replacement bolt at a local shop but it broke off within a day. So I called the U.S. Embassy for advice. The Duty Officer suggested I try this place to get a hardened steel bolt. Unfortunately they did not have a hardened bolt in the size I needed.
But they did have some stainless steel hose clamps which I used as a temporary fix. It help up for the rest of our trip to Shanghai and Guangzhou.
"Orange, just like HomeDepot"
The store layout and orange color scheme is very similar to HomeDepot.
Only difference is that the prices are much lower (like a 1/10) except for imported items. Those were much higher!
