Here's a list of useful things to bring if you are going to Shanghai:
My favourite is this one:
-Your address written in Chinese characters
That would NOT have ever even crossed my mind, and it is so simple...

Due in large part to the large number of expatriates and multinational corporations based in the city, Shanghai is like no other city in China. With such an international and cosmopolitan atmosphere, it is sometimes easy to forget that you are, in fact, in China.

Despite the many similarities and comforts that life in a big city can bring, there are a few key differences. Being prepared for these will make your trip to Shanghai even more enjoyable. With that in mind, below is a list of 5 Must-Have Items for exploring the city.

*
A small umbrella or a rain jacket

Even if it appears to be a sunny day when you leave your hotel early in the morning, making sure you have a small umbrella or rain jacket with you is a very smart move as sudden rain showers can quickly ruin a leisurely walk around the city. Whether summer, spring, autumn (or even winter), making sure you have an umbrella will help keep you comfortable and prepared for whatever the day might bring.

You really don't need to bring an umbrella. The second it starts raining loads of women selling small umbrellas appear from nowhere!! I bought one for about 0.20 smile.gif

Yeah, I guess that's true, but maybe if you don't want to have to leave it behind, or carry it around, you want to bring a travel umbrella maybe.

I dunno, I would just bring a jacket.

I think the man in the article was saying that Shanghai is different from other cities in China because of all the expatriates...I don't think he was making a judgment on success.
