Today, we venture out!
Mom's over the mild bladder infection, I've had my "me-time," and Dad's excited to get going again.
We head for the subway, proud that it had only taken us about 30 minutes to figure out to which stop our hotel was closest and how to get to a couple of key locations. (keep in mind most things are written in …
Sorry, this entry is going to be short and maybe slightly immature
We are beat. Our family has a long standing tradition that the max length of a trip is 10 days. We broke the rule and are suffering the consequences. We are exhausted from traveling all the time, frustrated with the language barrier and out of gas.
We did not …
... to leave Shanghai we had the misfortune of taking the busiest line in the city during morning rush hour. Sardines have it easier. We had 2 large bags and a backpack each and weren't able to get into the first train that came. Waiting for the second train we managed to force our way just inside the door. The people around us were packed so close that we didn't even try to find a handrail to hold onto. When the train accelerated the people in front of you fell backwards into you ...

We found out hostel ok, ye' ol' Captian Youth Hostel. They make you pay for your room daily and the lift doors don't open unless you press the buttons or jump up and down a little, but in all a good place to stay.

The People's Park had many parts to it - and I loved all the scupltures. The Captain's Bar overlooked The Bund, and was a perfect place for a meal and drink, watch the boats cruise up and down the river, and enjoy the night lights of the city.

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.
