    • Art exhibitions in Shanghai

      by scotty_m Online Now Dec 11, 2014 at 4:49 AM

      Hello guys, I arrived in Shanghai some weeks ago and will stay here for a couple of months to do a student exchange. Anyway, I recently walked through the Bund and passed by a hotel/art exhibition at the 'Swatch Art Peace Hotel'. They currently have a very nice exhibition, I guess it's called 'Faces & Traces'. My place is very near to the campus of the Fudan university. Do you know by chance any similar interesting museums or art exhibition in that area?

      My wife and me land at Pudong airport on the 5th Nov. at 9.55 am. Or we can take a flight landing at Hongqiao airport on the 4th Nov. night at 11.15 pm (Cheaper). which will be better and easier as we want to stay in a city hotel?

      Our flight home from PVG is at 10 pm on 6th Nov.

      Where to stay in main city areas? What all can we see? Can we visit the water villages?

      Hello everyone!

      Hope you are well, I'm just looking for some advice if anyone could possibly help me out. I'll be traveling to Shanghai for a few days next month and am keen to get stuck in. I'm just trying to find out which would be the best district to stay in. In terms of entertainment like eating/drinking, shopping nightlife etc plus some where that's a good base to travel around (if it's possible to have it all :)) would French Concession or Huangpu be the go?

      Thanks in advance, kindest regards!

      who can assist with basic tour to understand areas and subways in city area. Further it would be good to have a contact should we need to go to an area or need a translator. Tour / assistance will be for me and my girlfriend only.
