      Airport, Accomodation, Itinerary

      Shanghai Shi Apr 1, 2014 at 1:48 AM

      First time visiting Shanghai with 2 pax, around 7D6N during end of May 2014. Wish the itinerary won't be that compact and change hotel so frequent, also not very interested to musuem and gallery. Can please advice me how to arrange this 7D6N itinerary?

      Since I yet buy flight ticket, which Shanghai airport is more nearer and convenient for tourist? Pudong or HongQiao?

      For accomodation, my budget is around 600yuan per night. clean, near subway and nice location. Any suggestion?

      What would you suggest to be the best way to get around in Shanghai with a group of 4 adults and 2 children (3 & 4.5)? I'm mainly afraid of getting separated. And would the 3 year old need a stroller to get around? Can you also suggest housing please, close to the city center?

Need some suggestions regarding some nice places where I can see culture, which offer free observation like chinese martial arts training centers or other places. I'll be staying for 3 days this time as well.

      Shanghai Dec 25, 2013 at 8:16 PM

      WE will be in Shanghai for 8 nights and want the best advice on hotels, I think I would really like breakfast included and if possible exec lounge access of a nightime for a drink. I have been looking at Sofitel Hyland near Nanjing Road, anyone know much about that place or do you have any recommendations for hotels around $250 (Au) per night inc breakfast and or lounge access. Also being close to a metro would be good. Other hotels I have looked at are : Les Suites ( near the Bund) Grand Central Hotel, Yangste ( ex Langham) New World Hotel and Howard Johnson Plaza...any advice would be great and Happy New Year

      Can any member recommend a tour guide for our first day in Shanghai (think we will know better & quicker if guided on first day)
      Do not want to use agency ---- perhaps there is someone doing such guides part time or are students
      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.

      Hi members, I am going to travel again and seek your knowledge and great advise
      I am sorry to start with hotels as almost one in three posts are about hotels!
      I am heading to Shanghai and wish to spend a week there (maybe go outside for a night or two) and wish hotel advise
      my requirements are
      1. must be clean & tidy. 2 reasonable value ($80 daily budget) 3. wifi access 4. near metro to tour the city
      From reading the notes I think Jing An district, People's Square near metro would be a good central location and would get better value than closer to Bund,

      Hey guys!

      I'm spending 3 days in Shanghai over Thanksgiving break (visiting a friend who moved there for work) - I've never been to China before and don't know that much about Shanghai (the other two destinations on the trip, Tokyo & Hong Kong, I've been wanting to visit forever!) - what are must-dos and sees in Shanghai in a 72 hour window? I'll be staying in the Jing-An district, if that helps shape your answers!

    • 7 days in Shanghai

      Shanghai Sep 7, 2013 at 5:21 PM

      Hi ...we are booked to be in Shanghai for 7 days over Easter in 2014. Have never been before and looking for accommodation hopefully with exec lounge acces on Nanjing Road or close at a reasonable rate. Some say the French Concession area is the place to stay. Our budget is around $200 au per night and can go up a little. As first time visitors would love some hints on what to see over those 7 days, I know it seems like a long time but wanted a change from our normal rushing around and do things hopefully a bit more slowly. We love shopping too and would be interested in at least one market. I am busy studying all the forums but if there are any experts out there. Also I am allergic to MSG in foods, how do I say " No MSG" in the corect language. Thank you
