People's Square, Huangpu, China, 200000
Yu Garden - This is the traditional Chinese garden, a very large garden. The feel is very zen. Again, I went there in pouring rain, but still very pretty. There are other major sights that you should go once in Shanghai: 1. The Cheng Huang Temple...

It can be difficult to orient yourself on the ground in Shanghai. A map will help, but an aerial view of the city will show you just how awesome this city is. You could charter a helicopter, but a far cheaper option is seeing the...

One of my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATIONS for drinks is the Grand Hyatt Shanghai. The Grand Hyatt occupies the top 36 floors of the 88-story Jin Mao Tower in the Jetsons-looking Pudong district, so at sunset (or anytime) you have a stunning view (with no...

There are many acrobatic shows to choose from in Shanghai. One, Eros, boasts, "If you miss this, you miss Shanghai!" but it looked very high-tech, more like a Cirque du Soleil, and I wanted to see a traditional show. Well, this was it. It's most...

If you didn’t know that the “Core of the Earth” happens to lie a few meters under the Huangpu, then jump on the Bund Tourist Tunnel for a five minute ride you won’t soon forget. More of a bizarre tram ride under the river than journey to the...

The Hyatt has it in spades when it comes to top views of the city, but while most flock to the Hyatts hidden in the JinMao Tower and World Financial Center (or the “Bottle Opener” as it is affectionally known), it’s the Hyatt on the Bund that...

Lin Jiang Da Sha ( Zhong Shan Nan Lu ), Huangpu Qu, Shanghai Shi, China, 200085
