Big Bus Exploration

Yesterday we had the day to ourselves to do some exploring. We have used hop on hop off buses in many other cities and find them very useful both as modes of transport and a way of getting an overview of the places which we may like to explore further.

We hopped on the Big Bus just outside our hotel. This took us down to The Bund and …

Shanghai, I think I love you!

... closed and locked for reasons I better understand now, and headed to a building close to the Pearl Tower to buy tickets for the high speed train to Beijing. Had Mary Ann not walked us to the door where we were supposed to buy tickets, we would still be walking around Shanghai looking for this tiny closet-like office. Once tickets were bought, it was time for lunch.

A few doors to the left of the ticket office was a restaurant famous for ...

Peasant bag style through the richest city

... interesting experience of being pulled by the arm by an old Chinese man and meeting his Chinese friend who lives in New York…and then I got roped into a conversation about Detroit's economic status. That was awkward. Then, after going to the park we went to the former residence and museum dedicated to Sun Yat-sen. For those who don’t know (I really didn’t know too much about him before going to China either), Sun Yat-sen was the founder of the Republic ...

Retreat to Shanghai

... took a multitude of pictures with our new friends, then random Asians who kept asking for pictures with the striking Americans. The view from the bund, once again, gleamed in the night with thousands of flashing lights, TV screens taking up the entire side of buildings, and heavily decorated boats down the river. The walk is never void of an extravagant display, which always amuses its onlookers. We were then guided along the river to a brightly lit bridge ...

Expo- where Chinese people prove they can queue.

... Belarus, UK seed cathedral. When making our way to leave Belarus an Italian man started to talk to Mary and me. He was standing there with his son and his friend, a chef. I can’t remember how the conversation opened but it soon became uncomfortable and ended up with him trying to get us to go clubbing with his son. The man was Italian and fairly old so his attempts at flirtation with Mary were pretty gross. Example: Mary So what are you doing in China? Man ...

    This is a very well located hotel. It is within walking distance of the Bund and has a Big Bus Stop right at the back door. The rooms are spacious and well appointed and the breakfast buffet is adequate. We found this very congenial.

    Good Room, Basic Service

    We paid for bigger room as we have a child. The room was excellent, very clean, with fast internet. The location is central, not far from a tube station, and near the shopping area, 5 minutes drive from the Bund or 15 minutes walk. The staff was polite, but not very helpful. For example, when we needed medical help they just sent us to the pharmacy. It is disappointing to get such basic service in a very good hotel, where people on the street do not speak a word of English. The food in the hotel was bland and over priced by UK standards (let alone China prices).
