      I will have an 8 hour layover in Shanghai and I have couple of questions. Do I have enough time risk free to go for a quick tour and come back and reconnect to my flight, or is it risky? Is there any short tours from the airport that do that? I know there is in Kuala Lumpur.
      Finally, with a US passport, do you need a visa if you are only in Shanghai for 8 hours and on your way back home?

      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

    • Hostel or Hotel near Jing'an College

      by firefly0 Online Now Jul 18, 2015 at 8:13 AM

      Hello dear travellers,

      My fiancée is in Shanghai at the moment to take a language class at the Shanghai Jing'an College, 601 Jiaozhou Rd, Jing'an, Shanghai. She still needs a place to stay, where she can sleep and study. Can anyone recommend a hostel or hotel or anything alike that is close to the college, or at least easy to get there?

      And it should be cheap enough to afford a one month stay.

      Thank you very much for your effort.
