    Travel Brochures and Hotel Business Card

    by yellowbell Written Mar 2, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Pick your travel brochures from the hotel lobby and ask the receptionist to write the places you're interested to visit in Chinese characters. The translated brochures come in handy as you can show them to the cab driver.

    Here are useful brochures:

    Ten Leisurely Streets of Shanghai - Nanjing St (high-end shopping), Doulun st (modern art), Hengshan (for outdoor cafes and tree lined avenue like Ho Chi Minh), Old Shanghai St. (Yuyuan Bazaar), The Bund (Gothic and Baroque architectures)

    Feel Shanghai (acrobat show)

    Fondest memory: Cab drivers do not leave unless they understand the place where you want to go and they even issue you receipts! Show your brochures with Chinese characters and pictures and off you go!

    Eat some Dragonfruit

    by ATXtraveler Written Aug 14, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: During the conference, we enjoyed many different Asian cuisines, most of which I had tasted at some point before, but one that hit my palate for the first time was the Dragonfruit.

    Dragonfruit is actually warm climate cacti, and is commercially grown all around the world these days.

    I actually could not verify whether these originated in China or not, but with a name like Dragonfruit... it is a good guess.

    Neon Lights at Night!

    by ATXtraveler Written Aug 14, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Shanghai is actually a very interesting city. The city has 19 million people living there, which is relatively the same population of Australia and New Zealand combined, yet it has twice as much neon as ANZ as a whole!

    During the day, most of the buildings look dull and boring... but at night the town really comes alive with lights!

    There is plenty to do and the town definitely goes all night long, but make sure you get most of your shopping done by about 10pm.

    Yu Garden

    by Bonita80 Written Jun 11, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Yu Garden is another place worth visiting. The Yu Garden is characteristics of the architectural style of the Ming Dynasty. It is a private garden in the southeast of Shanghai, with a history of more than 400 years. The Garden, reminiscent of those in Suzhou, features more than 30 halls and pavilions.

    Architecture of Modern Buildings

    by victorwkf Written Dec 10, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I find that the architecture of the modern buildings in Shanghai is quite interesting, especially some of the buildings are of shinning colours, as well as innovative shapes such as the Oriental Pearl TV Tower. Also, the modern buildings in Shanghai are being built at a very fast rate, especially in Pudong area. This city is really growing and modernising very fast !

    Xujiahui Cathedral

    by victorwkf Written Oct 8, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Near to the Xujiahui shopping area, there is a large and impressive cathedral worth visiting. This cathedral resembles those commonly found in Europe. I was lucky as I managed to witness a wedding outside the cathedral !

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: When you are at the Bund, do visit the simple but historical Waibaidu Bridge across the Huangpu River. You will find some street vendors selling items on this bridge. This bridge is located near to the Monument of the People's Heroes at the Bund.

    View from top of Oriental Pearl TV Tower

    by victorwkf Written Oct 8, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The view from the top of the Oriental Pearl TV Tower is simply amazing, as you can see 360 degrees of the entire city and huangpu river. The fee going up is about RMB$60 but it is really worth it.
