Shanghai travel tips

As with many of China’s metropolitan areas, Shanghai boasts a comprehensive public transportation network, with easy access for most hotels in Shanghai. Primary transportation coverage can be found in the Xinzhuang neighborhood as well as in East Xujing. The Shanghai metro is one of the most popular forms of transportation, running virtually continuous routes throughout the city. Trams, once decommissioned, were brought back in 2010, and have been expanded on since. Trams are recommended for shorter distance travel where Shanghai hotels are found within relative walking distance. There is also a network of busses to get you around.

Where to stay in Shanghai

Those traveling on business might find the Radisson Blu Hotel in Huangpu to their liking. The area into which these, and other areas in the surrounding vicinity, is called Huangpu. It is considered a more expensive area to stay, hence you may want to take serious consideration for booking a cheap hotel in a less central area and depending on the reliable Chinese public transportation system to get where you need to be. For families, one might consider the Parkyard Hotel in the Pudong District. Shanghai hosts great opportunities for those on a budget, such as the Golden Tulip in Changning.

Learn about attractions and sights in Shanghai

Shanghai Circus World in the Zhabei District is one of the bigger tourist draws in Shanghai, with visitors and locals equally enchanted by the high-budget productions that are often compared to Broadway musicals more than conventional circus acts. The Oriental Pearl Tower is another of Shanghai’s most popular sights. Something of a hybrid of the Seattle Space Needle and the Eiffel Tower, located near Huangpu River in the Pudong New Area, this construct was the tallest building in the city at the time of its construction. Although much of its facade is architecturally provocative, the transparent flooring on its observational deck is perhaps the most popular with visitors. The Shanghai Museum is another stand-out tourist attraction, located on People’s Square in Huangpu, it boasts over 120 000 pieces of Chinese art, historical artifacts, texts and miscellanies.

This diversity is reflected in a world-class nightlife scene that thrives across the city. Possibly one of the most popular nightclubs amongst tourists is Monkey Champagne, located near Xinle Lu. The club is famous for top-class DJs but can get a little claustrophobic at peak times. If you were going to pick your hotel based purely on the nightlife scene, you could do a lot worse than to book one of the cheap hotels in this Shanghai area. Near Fuxing Lu, you will come across another staple of the Shanghai nightlife, the Apartment. Something of a conceptual destination venue, the club comprises two dance floors, dedicated to catering for different tastes, and a roof terrace that serves food. Honorable mentions include the Shelter (near Fuxing Xi Lu), Downtown (near Wulumuqi Lu), and Hollywood (near Dongping Lu). All of the areas mentioned offer fantastic eateries, such as the Fu 1088 in Changning Qu which offers a vibrant take on Shanghainese cuisine with a hint of modernity. Yuanyuanis, another Shanghainese restaurant, offering authentic traditional cuisine in Jing’An. Nearly all of Shanghai is easily accessed from any area using the metro.
