      Maglev station

      Shanghai Sep 20, 2015 at 8:49 PM

      Hi everyone,

      Lady Gaw and I are going to parts of China in a few weeks time and although it is more expensive, we want to leave Shanghai city area to airport via the maglev train. We'll get to that station by taxi. I want to visit the maglev museum which I believe is part of the station complex and I'm hoping there is a left baggage area where we can dump our bags for an hour or so while we visit the museum and maybe grab some lunch at a nearby. Does anyone know if there is a left baggage area at that station complex please.

      Thanks in advance

      We want to visit Beijing and other destinations in China. We have kids that are passionate about animal conservation and we want them to come away with a positive view of China. Are there any zoos/acquariums/ conservation parks that would you recommend from this perspective? We have read that Beijing zoo has cramped enclosures and poor practices and want to avoid it - how about the aquarium in Beijing? How about Milu Park (and is that easy to get to?) How about the pandas in Chengdu? How about HK zoo? Any other ideas? Thanks so much. Our kids are 9 and 6

    • Attractions between Hong Kong and Shanghai. Travelling by train

      China Sep 17, 2015 at 9:47 PM

      I asked another question a few weeks ago about itinerary options from Hong Kong to see south China. We can also return home from Shanghai so the question now is: we will be in Hong Kong in May, 2016. We need to get to Shanghai and are thinking of going there by train and visiting Guilin /Yangshuo and Hangzhou along the way. Any other sites worth visiting for a day or two along that route? It doesn't need to be direct (detours are possible) as we have some time for this trip.

      Thank you.
