The rooms were great (assisted by an upgrade). When we arrived back from Huangshan at 7:30am we were able to check into a room and no problem getting late checkout.

The temple had some interesting statues but probably the most entertaining thing was a …
Today's attractions were Shanghai's TV tower and a trip out of the city to the nearby canal town of Zhujiajiao. Our Lonely Planet book describes the place as a charming tableau of Ming- and Quing- dynasty alleys, bridges and old town architecture. Yes the place is very photogenic but it is also busy with tourists even though we are here mid week. …
It's moving day today so nothing exciting to tell you about so I thought you might appreciate some of the Ching-lish we have seen. 'Do not caper', we think this means do not run or climb . 'Step ladder', this was the sign for the stairs at the hotel, well that's what I think it was but it may have been an actual step ladder. 'Experimental …
