Trip Report Shanghai, Seoul, and Beijing -- trip report

Jump to last reply

1 week - late Feb - early March 2010

I don't have much time, but I hope to do a quick trip report for what was a quick but fantastic trip. We covered a lot of ground in one week, so I'm happy to share what I learned and answer any questions. We didn’t use a travel agent or anything, just booked it our selves (like we do all trips!) with great help and tips from fodors friends! Thank you!

Travelers: We are a couple in our mid 40s. First time travel to Asia (mostly enjoy travel to Europe). We love food, culture, history, shopping.

Itinerary:
This was a very quick business trip for my husband and I tagged along:
2 nights in Shanghai
2 nights in Seoul
2 nights in Beijing


Airline: Air China
We chose Air China because of the low fares. It was like flying on a low-budget airline – but on an overnight flight across the Pacific! It was tough – one movie screen for the whole cabin, which was completely blocked from husband’s window seat (because of an awkward curtain that was blocking the seats in front of us) and partially blocked for me. Movie was blurry and black and white, anyways. Thank god for ambien, as I was able to sleep for several hours. (Needless to say we were traveling coach. Business class looked VERY nice!)

Airline: Korean Air
This flight was WAY too short (Shangai to Seoul). (I'm pretty sure I’ve never said that about a flight before!) Huge cabins with high ceilings and amazing service. Personal TVs with current movies. Great food. AWESOME!

First stop…
SHANGHAI
