Attractions, Getting Around and Where to Stay
There are a number of attractions for business class travellers to visit whilst staying in Shanghai. Some of these attractions that are most often recommended are The Bund (Wai Tan) – the most famous district in Shanghai. Situated on the Huang Pu River banks, the area is a popular tourist and visitor attraction. There is also the Yuyuan Garden which is a complex of temples, markets and parks and offers an insight into old Shanghai. Shanghai is also home to many tea houses which are worth visiting; a variety of tea is on offer, alongside some Chinese delicacies.
It is recommended that anyone visiting Shanghai for more than just a few days – even business travellers – should purchase the Jiaotong Card. The card is loaded with money and can be used on a variety of transport methods including taxis, metros and buses. This is intended to make travelling around the city as hassle-free as possible. A taxi is considered a good option for travelling around the city, particularly in less busy times and off-peak hours. Driving on the other hand is not recommended for business travellers visiting Shanghai for a number of reasons – this includes dealing with the complex road systems, traffic jams, construction and bad habits that are displayed by drivers.
Hotels for business travellers to stay in are located all around the city – the Grand Hyatt Shanghai for example, is an ideal hotel for business travellers to check into whilst visiting the city. This is situated in the centre of Pudong – the commercial district – and within walking distance of most of Shanghai’s business venues. Classic Hong Qiao State Guest Hotel is another popular choice for business travellers due to being a picturesque hotel which houses 167 different rooms. The hotel is located close to the Shanghai Exhibition Centre and offers a range of dining facilities, as well as conference rooms, a gym, space facilities and both indoor and outdoor swimming pools.
