Trip Report First Asia Adventure 3 weeks!

Jump to last reply

This is my first trip report ever! pls give me advice or ask questions if it seems fit. Reading everybody's report helped me plan this trip so much, i would like to pass on the gift i received.
NYC 3:30pm -> SHANGHAI 6:30pm on the next day. direct flight w. China Eastern.. no movies in the plane.
TIP: Have the address of hotel written in chinese, no taxi driver understands english!
Staying at Les Suites Orient Hotel in the Bund. Super satisfied. Boutique feeling, nice design, great location. beautiful view of the river and all the tall buildings in the financial district.
Restaurant: Mr&Mrs Bund.. good food, little pricey.. NYC style.

first tour day, visited the old city...yuyunan garden, god temple.. all walking distance. then lunch in the french concession neighborhood. Dinner and drinks at Park Hyatt - 91st floor of the SWFC building - stunning views, no need for reservations...

off to bed now :-)
