Excellent location and price! The location was the best thing from the hotel, you could anything you need just walking and you can easily move to other places because it has " Dashijie" metro station just in front of the hotel.

The accepted theory of word's origin is that it comes from the Chinese city of Shanghai, a common destination of the ships with abducted crews.

... wilting in the heat, the locals smoking on the stairs of these wonderful cliches. Impressive, Vegasesque modern buildings were dimmed by the crumbling shacks and rubble on either side. Families lulled in derelict shells of structures I hoped were not homes. Each extreme of the country; the exuberant flashy towers and the humble vender stalls stood side by side, and I did my best to drink it all in on the first night of my ...
