Shanghai offers the visitor a comfortable fusion of Eastern and Western styles in everything from its fashion to its cuisine. When it comes to shopping Shanghai is second to none, with several large retail areas on hand supplying everything from freshly caught river fish to designer jewellery. Having recently hosted to 2008 Olympics Shanghai is now gearing up to host the 2010 World Expo.

Shanghai is not a very expensive city; at least if you have toured several western cities, you will find that a trip to Shanghai is much too economical. Of course, there are various five star hotels and such here too, so you can decide your own upper limit of spending. But, the bottom line is, if you want to have a budget trip to Shanghai , you can do so quite easily.

Shanghai Travel

The locals in Shanghai are quite friendly, and they are conscious of the appeal their city has with foreign tourists. They will make you feel at home. Language could be a problem, though. But in most places that matter, you will find that a healthy amount of English is spoken. You need not be worried about your dress as such, being a tourist, but very overt physical expressions are not accepted in some sections of Shanghai.
