As part of the hunt we also had to visit raffles city, malls, and other venues in the area. One of the malls was huge! I couldn't imagine how big and of course you had all your american labels.
Also, during this week we met up with the young student group from Shanghai at Hannah's Cafe.

The first 4 (of 14) hours passed large, ugly engineering projects, eating into the hillsides, the ferocious rapids of the now brown Danba river angry at the disruption. After the lunch stop (where I’d had a mountain of indistinguishable meat & was sure I’d heard the guy behind me say 'Chihuahua’) we munched on our sour red fruits bought at ...

Hilton Shanghai Hotel
I had arranged for an Airport Transfer before my arrival as my airline would arrive at Pudong International airport early in the morning. The price was at RMB800 NETT for a buick van which I find it rather reasonable for a 1hour journey. The guide was at the airport carrying the Hilton Shanghai Sign and we were then escorted to the Carpark where the hotel driver was there waiting for us.
The Buick van was huge and comfy for the one hour ride we were going to have! We were given cold towels and mineral water (Which Conrad Hong Kong did NOT provide). The ride was smooth and comfortable with just a minor jam. We finally arrived at the hotel and the bellboy was there to assist us with our luggages. At the same time, Erica was at the front door waiting for our arrival. She told us that our check in would be done in our room.
As I had requested for a NOR1 upgrade at a very good price, I had gotten the executive Panoroma suite room which is situated on the 23rd floor, room number 2324. Honestly, I expected a higher level as it was executive. But as we entered in our room, I was surprised by the size of the living room and the bed room. It was fairly large and had comfortable spacing. Each of the rooms had a LARGE PLANT literally! The living room toilets was a first to me, as it had also a bathtub which ables you to bathe in there.
The bedroom toilet was huge with a separate bathtub and shower area . The toiletries are "Peter Thomas Roth". This is my first time seeing this brand and also in Hilton, I don't know if it is just for the executive levels or every floor but I find the brand to be very good. The bed was very comfortable and big. The only minor problem I had was the TV volume. At Volume 35 .... I couldn't even hear anything especially the English channels. Other than that, everything was fine, the room made me feel at home (I think its due partly cause of the plants)
The executive lounge is situated on the 38th Floor of the hotel. As I enter, the décor was very homely and the size of the lounge is surprisingly huge with the view overlooking Nanjing Road and Pudong from afar. The service here is extremely amazing, service staff "Suki" especially I would like to compliment her. Her smile and the will to do her work really brighten up everyone's day. The food wise it's kind of mediocre which surprise me. The quality wasn't like other Hilton club floors I have been too.
Had breakfast at the new atrium café, the variety was great and so were the staff. It was a nice atmosphere. The doorman and bellboys were very pleasant and helpful. Overall, I had an awesome stay. Kudos shanghai Hilton. Location wise, I cant complaint as it wasn't situated in the popular shopping districts but the Jing An Station is just 5-7 Mins away from the hotel so it's not so bad.
Rating Overall: 8/10
