It really doesn't matter if there's no access to Facebook in Shanghai (or so I've heard). If I only had less than a week in Shanghai, I probably wouldn't even have the time to access it anyway!
This week's Hit List is all about the things you can do in Shanghai, from shopping to partying in the hottest club in town.
Where to shop
It's a no brainer why Plaza 66 was named this way - it has 66 floors! The tallest building in Pu Xing, Shanghai, Plaza 66 has a departmental store from the first to fifth floor. You can expect to find many branded flagship stores right here. If the price is not your main concern, then you are at the right place.
Located at Nanjing West, you can also shop along this shopping street at other malls such as City Plaza and Shanghai Center.
Address: 1266, Nanjing Xi Lu, Jing'an District, Shanghai
Where to visit
Take half a day of your trip to visit the iconic Huangpu River of Shanghai. This is definitely a traditional tourist program you ought to follow, simply because a trip upstream takes you to most tourist attractions at a glance. We suggest the evening cruise to capture the best moments of this scenic place.
The Bund, Huangpu River
Purchase cruise tickets at: Shiliupu Ferry Terminal
Where to eat
Fu 1039 can be quite the challenge to find (there's no signage whatsoever). But we can give you a hint: The restaurant is situated within a 1930's house, so it's really not so difficult to miss once you make that turn into Yuyuan Road. For authentic Shanghainese cuisine, this is the place to be and trust me when I say it's well worth the visit. Some must try dishes? Shanghainese smoked fish and Pork Stew.
Address: 1039 Yuyuan Road, Shanghai.
Where to party
One of the biggest club chains in China would be Babyface. It is also one of the busiest and most popular clubs in Shanghai. Get ready for some Chinese-style clubbing complete with dice games on tables. And if you are lucky, you might be able to catch their international DJ acts over the weekend. The main room spins mainstream electro-house while the smaller room spins RnB/Hip Hop tracks.
