Has anyone been to Expo?

Would love to hear of any experiences or thoughts?

We are going in August!

Re: Expo

by ellyse

According to the amount of people going everyday, I think it should be around 1 million visitors by now? I haven't checked recently though.
Erm, not sure what you want to know? Can you be more specific?

Re: Expo

by ellyse

hakunam, please also list what you consider to be the "major pavilions", and what you consider "one day".

Generally I would say come in June or September.
You could get to the Expo site most usually via metro or taxi, or via bus or ferry. Which one you take would depend on where in Shanghai you're starting from, and which entrance you're heading to.

If you already have your dates fixed, why are you asking about when is a good time to come?!
August will be hot and humid.

Re: Expo

by sombat_ch

To be honest.
most of my friends are subject to public holiday. If they couldn't make longer vacation leave then I myself do not need to specific the date on august holiday.
So Thank for your help again.

Thanks for your gratitude, but I couldn't make much sense out of your last answer.

Hi Rabbit,

Been back after a 7-day visit to Expo.

Like what Ellyse said, August may be hot and humid. Don't forget you may need to queue about 1-3 hours or more for the more popular pavilions.

For going there, my suggestion is to alight at Madang station on Line 9. I'm always there by 9:30 and the entry was quite free from crowds. After getting through the security inspections, hop into the complimentary subway Line 13 which can get you to the terminal station 2 stops away. Then take the free shuttle bus to get to wherever you want.

My vote will go to Thailand, Spain, Russia (esp if you have kids), Switzerland (if you wish to take the chair lift ride). I've wanted but could not get into Saudi Arabia, Japan, Taiwan pavilions. Visit the popular pavilions either early morning or in the evening. So shortlist 7 pavilions if you have a 7-day ticket.

Don't miss the night views. It's quite picturesque.

Get the expo maps preferably before going there. I find the perspective maps quite difficult to read and suggest that you draw a plan view of a plan view which will help you to navigate the humungous site. Happy travelling.

Thanks for the info, cannot wait to check it all out in person! Arriving in September.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Shanghai Introduction...

by zqboy

Shanghai Introduction

Throughout the past century, Shanghai has had numerous name tags attached to it; the 'whore of the East', the 'Paris of the Orient' and the 'Pearl Of China'. Images of Shanghai more than any other Chinese city, are bountiful in the west. A visit here therefore, is naturally tainted to some extent, with a preconception of how the city will be.

As the largest and most prosperous city in the nation, Shanghai is the economic, financial and cultural center of China, where Beijing is the political heart. And this image of Shanghai as a fast and modern metropolis is certainly the one that most visitors take away. Those old preconceptions of Shanghai as the home of crime vice and prostitutes are wiped away, as the city successfully projects an image of itself as young, vibrant and cool.

Shanghai is a modern and fast paced city, rich in history and culture and with a wealth of areas and sites just waiting to be explored. One of the nicest aspects of Shanghai is that the crowds here are much more manageable than in a city like Beijing. This is largely because there are no great ancient sites which people flock too. Rather, this is a city to be walked, wandered, explored and discovered in your own time and, in your own style.

What makes Shanghai particularly attractive are the many different styles of architecture and design throughout the city. Shanghai was once divided up into different 'Concessions' or districts and the boundaries of these areas still remain today.The famous, Bund was home to the 'British Public Park' and this boulevard has a plethora of colonial structures to visit, all reminders of Shanghai's days of decadence. The Japanese and the French Concessions too, are fascinating areas to explore. The French quarter is a particularly charming district to wander, and there are many former residences to look at and discover something about old Shanghai and the people who lived here. The area known as the 'Chinese City' is also worthy of a visit. Take a break from the tourists around the Yuyuan and do some serious antique shopping or just lose yourself amidst the old alleys and streets.

But perhaps most of all today, Shanghai is a spectacularly modern city. The pace of development here is unbelievable. Currently, seventeen percent of the world's cranes are in the city and developers boast that the city is changing at a rate incomparable to anywhere else in the world ever. The newest area of the city, Pudong, has just celebrated its 10th anniversary and is almost unrecognizable from the way it was when development began here. Two of the most impressive city structures can be found here, the Jinmao Tower and the Oriental TV Tower.

For any visitor to China, perhaps the most attractive thing about this city is just how fashionable it is. Museums, galleries, restaurants and bars have emerged in the past few years. This cosmopolitan cultural scene which harks back to the heydays of the 1920s and 30s and the new found wealth in the city are helping to reinvent Shanghai as a place with a fabulous and optimistic style and attitude.

Delicious ramen and dumplings

by thescene about Ajisen Ramen

The Ajisen Ramen branch I ate in was in the new Pudong Airport terminal 2. The restuarant was less than two weeks old and sat at the fourth floor overlooking the check in counters. Given the newness of the place it was pretty clean and orderly.

I was looking at the menu and was intrigued with at curry ramen that was listed. I ordered that plus some steamed dumplings. Some Tsingtao beer to wash it down. The ramen was served nice and hot just as I expected. It was not as good as the standard ramen but it was still good and I was able eat all of it. The dumplings were also pretty good. Curry Ramen was pretty good. Gyoza dumplings on the side.

Shanghai Ocean Aquarium

by lilysuzlini

Take kids to this place and I am sure that it is worth going to. I have been to couple of aquarium in the world, but I find this one is the longest. Besides that is what they claim they are. The fare is slightly higher than other places.....i.e. Cape Town, Sydney, Malaysia etc.

Union Building

by Willettsworld

The Union Building (on the right of the photo) at No.3 The Bund, was built in 1922 and was used by a number of insurance companies. The building is in Neo-Renaissance style with a symmetrical facade, but with some Baroque style details. The roof features an unusual domed corner pavilion. In 1997 a private equity fund from Singapore purchased the building, and in 2004 converted it to a "high-class" shopping centre, called "Three on the Bund".
