I will be spending 3 days in Shanghai next month. What am I in for? Any tips? Also general Shanghai thread.
Download wechat. If you are into clubbing my friend is a promoter there and can get you a table. Other than that go out and see the sights. Eat some weird street food and have some nice seafood at a rich restaurant. Go to the bund and see the sick skyline. If you go with your gf take the 100rmb boat ride. Its really beautiful at night and under $20. There's also a lake town thing south of Shanghai that you can take the bus to. Go on a weekday and it won't be crazy busy. Its got lots of tourist traps, but it is pretty cool. Downtown with city hall is nice to visit before going for dinner.
Interested in this as well, I will be there for a month-ish on business this summer.
What are some good places to visit that are not main tourist areas but are still nice to see?
THanks for the info!
Do you live there or just have traveled there before?
Bumping up to catch the attention of more contributors.
>my friend is a promoter there and can get you a table
this shit is so common, how do they make any money?
I meet promoters all the time that are trying to get us into their club. meet them at clubs or on wechat etc. but those clubs usually suck like myst/m2/diva. would be alright if you get a good crew together
you wanna hit up Eddy's, thats a fun joint. Lucca is good too, or Studio if you like it seedy
I've never heard of it, where is it?
doesn't matter shanghai is bangin wed/thurs too
not him, but i fucking love it. my general health is not great due to air/smoking/drugs/partying but its fun as fuck here, good people and chicks and money and food and transport. ive been around most of asia and its the best big city to live in if thats your thing
pic related, Bounty Bar on Yongfu Rd, one of my favourite joints
There are still many areas away from the large cities where it's breathtaking, I completely agree though.
wed is ladies night, thursday is almost the weekend. There are busy places but I don't go out much midweek anymore
how the fuck do you get your own tutoring clients in SH without an agency? I've tried and tried asking chinese girls to help me but it seems impossible. people here are fucking retarded.
one of the negatives about the city. also it's getting more expensive and more crowded. takes one hour on the subway just to go to 3 stations, subways are always jammed packed with fucking farmer peasants from 8am - 8pm
