TripAdvisor Reviews Golden Island Hotel Shanghai
Travel Blogs from Shanghai
The trip here from England was quite painless. We flew for about 11 hours, in style on British Airways once again to Hong Kong. Another two hours on Dragon Air and we are in Shanghai, China. It is bloody humid here. It has an atmosphere of a rain forest without the trees, but as our son Travis has first hand experience in, it can get down around freezing point here in winter. What a city of contrasts and not just in weather terms either. I think that our hotel room ...

... to get to a famous statue of the city's first mayor and learn three phrases in "Shanhainese" as well. Our group took off in a mad sprint immediately. We used the Shanghai subway to find the statue. A total of about twenty minutes of running in swelteringly humid 90 degree tempreatures later, we were the winners. For winning, we got to pick from a goody bag of pseudo-Chinese coin purses and folding fans that probably came from ...
