    Shanghai Restaurants

    Cloud 9 is located at the 87th floor of Grand Hyatt Shanghai. It is a great place to enjoy the skycrapers at Pudong area with a seat enjoying the music and the drink. Although the drink is quite expensive, it might still be an option to stay comparing the expensive entrance fee of the other observatory at Shanghai.

    Zhujiajiao Local Customs

    “Sticky rice” is a famous food in this part of town. This lady was making them in front of the store, of course, this is just for show and she was making them so fast that I think she can made one in less than a minute.

  • Beware the City God Temple

    Zhujiajiao Tourist Traps

    After paying to get into the City God Taoist temple in ZhuJiaJiao, we were greeted (all too eagerly) by what I thought was a shrine worker. He was a little too quick to try to show us things and around the temple, before dragging me to his desk and beginning a palm-reading (in Chinese, which my friend had to translate). I kept saying I was not...

  • Quirky Knick-Knacks

    Zhujiajiao Shopping

    There're a number of small shops selling kitschy notebooks ("Communist-style" or featuring Zhujiajiao), nostalgic postcards (featuring Zhujiajiao and Shanghai), matchboxes and other little knick-knacks in Zhujiajiao. These are good souvenirs, especially if you need to bring back little keepsakes for people back home -- unbreakable, small and easy...

    Jiading Things to Do

    The Shanghai Chinese Imperial Examinations Museum is housed in the side halls of Jiading's Confucius Temple. The displays are interesting, tastefully presented and the English captions are surprisingly well-written. I'd say this is an off-the-beaten-path gem well worth visiting if you have extra time in Shanghai.The museum is divided into a few...

    Jiading Things to Do

    Jiading's Confucius Temple was established in the southern Song dynasty. There're some old Chinese juniper trees in the compound which look rather artistic, and some ancient steles near the entrance.The main hall houses a big statue of Confucius, and on the roof there're mini statues of Confucius -- my American friend said they were baby Confucius!...

  • Towering Over Jiading

    Jiading Things to Do

    With a history going all the way back to the southern Song dynasty, the 7-storey Fahua Pagoda (also known as Jinsha Pagoda, or Golden Sand Pagoda) is the traditional centre and highest point of Jiading town. It offers a fine view of Jiading: on a weekend I could see plenty of lively family activity in the town square, and to the left were a patch...

    Chongming Dao Nightlife

    At last a bar in Chongming Dao!A small friendly bar where you can sit at a bar and have a beer. The music is not too loud and prices reasonable. Friendly local staff, ( If you know "gate 3" you'll get the picture! )

  • Visit a Chinese Mig

    Chongming Dao Off The Beaten Path

    On Chong Ming, they have a park with an old MIG called a Cheng Liu (Avenger 6) that you can sit in if you pay the old lady 1 RMB ($.13).My Chinese friend told me of a Chinese hero who shot down dozens of American jets in one of these planes during the Korean war. I hated to disapoint him, but no one has ever shot down that many American jets.

    Jin Ze is a typical so-called "watertown" - those villages/towns along canals of the area, crosscrissed by the small canals/rivers, with houses built along the river, some people may live on the boats - their mobile home. Rivers, used to be the main arterials for such towns.

    Rainbow bridge, Pu Qing, was built by Chinese and American engineers (MIT?) to prove that the bridge on the famous Chinese ancient painting, qing1 ming2 shang4 he2 tu2, is buidable.

    The bridge was built with logs (64 of them plus 5 beams under) and bamboo pieces, to form an elegant arch shape. It has no nail or whatsoever: logs are interlocked at the joints. It is 16.18 m long and 4 m wide.

    It was painted in red color, standing out in the old town part of Jin Ze, where overall color is gray: old stone houses, and stone roads.

    The 1999 PBS/NOVA 1-hour TV program about the story of building this particular bridge (that was how we knew about the bridge):
