What a Typical Tourist Does in Shanghai

Ok, let me list what a typical tourist will do in Shanghai.


1. 城隍庙
Entrance fee RMB10. It's just a small temple, visitors go in to really pray, unlike me, I was just there to look around.
Advice: Don't do it unless you really want to pray!

This guy traveled alone and so he's doing the typical "shiok sendiri" thingy. He was taking a picture of the jostick he just put on.


2. 南京路步行街
Every China city has a 步行街 and I always like it. If you really like shopping, it's really a nice place.
Advice: Go.

3. 南翔馒头店

As I've mentioned earlier, this is no doubt very cheap. 20 Xiao Long Bao only costs you RMB20, but it doesn't worth any of my life time queue-ing for it.
Advice: If you don't have enough time touring Shanghai, skip this. If you really want to have it once in your life time, go there before 9am, before the crowd starts everyday.

4. 上海滩 The Bund

This is one of the most enjoyable tourist attractions in Shanghai. Do try to make some time to visit this place at different time of the day, it gives you different perspective of Shanghai in the morning and night. Due to energy saving concern, the lights were off at 11pm (winter). Please try to be there early.
Advice: MUST go! What else is more important than The Bund in Shanghai?

5. 豫园
Entrace fee: RMB30
Waste of my time! It was a private garden of someone whom I have no idea who. The private garden wasn't magnificent at all. RMB30 felt like robbery to me!
Advice: DON'T GO! I didn't even take any pictures inside this private garden, yes, that's how bad the place was. Just spend your time in 豫园商城 is good enough, you can do souvenir shopping in there.

6. Others
Other popular places in Shanghai which almost all the tourists will go are: 人民广场、新天地、徐家汇、正大广场(陆家嘴). These places are for shopping. I didn't take any photos of these places.
Advice: Nothing to advice. You could try 人民公园 near 人民广场, not a big park, but much better than 豫园.

Well, I guess that will sum up what I think it's typical.
