4 days in Beijing/3 days Shanghai

Jump to last reply

I have to travel to Shanghai for work and as it is an opportunity that I will likely never see again, my fiancé is planning to accompany me and we are going to go to Beijing for 6 days (4 full days) after the conference (we can't stay any longer than that :( ) I would like some suggestions with respect to what people consider their must sees and also places to eat I am a vegetarian.
Also, we were going to book a tour/hotel package type thing with a tour company, but again, the comments here have made me reconsider as we don't have a lot of money and I don't want to waste it. Specifically,I've read some of the commentary on here about tours and tipping and overpaying and bargaining and I would like some guidance on that as we have never really travelled and I have no idea how to bargain (suggestions on effective bargaining also helpful). In short, I'd be really grateful for your advice about anything. Also, any suggestions for things my fiancé can do in Shanghai while I'm working (he'll be on his own about 3 full days) would be really helpful too. Suggestions for good guide books also welcome, as I intend to get a few, but real people are always better. Sorry, I ramble, but many thanks!
