... to justify further investment.
I didn’t find out about two other considerations: does the maglev utilize more energy than a standard train? And what about a comparison regarding pollution?
Oh well, at least we had the opportunity to experience this unique mode of speedy transportation without needing to put on a seat belt and prepare for takeoff.

Hehehe I travelled home with a little symbol hanging from my bag from the tea shop and got a few glances on the subway ride home. I thought it was admirable glances at this super-savvy traveller who has mastered the Shanghai Subway now I know they were all thinking there goes another poor mug!! (Pics 2-3)
... faire philosophies that dominate British political thinking could come anywhere near tackling such issues
I visited two parts of what westerners call the former French concession. These were Xintiandi and Tianzifang. These are classic old buildings largely converted to high end galleries, fashion stores, restaurants and bars. They are pleasant places to visit, but unlike the hutongs of Beijing there is little traditional community left so overall I didnt enjoy them ...
... festival. Best I can figure, this festival has something to do with a woman who swallowed a magic bean that flew her to the moon. Her husband missed her (as he did not have a magic bean to swallow) and so once a year he looks at the moon? Somewhere in there is also a rabbit...who went to the moon with the woman...or something?

TravelPod Member ReviewsHengshan Moller Villa Hotel Shanghai
This is really a place for events, business meetings, or if you are fluent in chinese (or just super easy going). Very few people speak any english and its located far enough out from the main area of the city that it's difficult to find any restaurants/shops/instructions that have any english as well. If you are adventurous and have been studying the language section of your guide book, then this is a great place to stay. You're only .6 miles from the subway and you can get into town within 2-3 stops.
