    Shanghai

    Hey all,

    I will be going to Shanghai for a couple of days and also will be going to Hangzhou, Suzhou, and Nanjing for a day each. This is my first trip to that area and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what to see, what to do, or where to eat? Any recommendations or tips would be great.

    Thanks!

    Take the train from the airport into town - it does not go anywhere useful, but it goes REALLY REALLY fast! And you can connect to the metro for the rest of the journey. I'd buy a card for the metro too - they sold them in the station - like an octopus it saves alot of hassle fishing around for change etc.

    We really liked the French Concession area - just walking around - and found a few great restaurants in that area - but the Bund was under a pile of construction (not sure if it still is or not). Liked Suzhou - and the incredible train experience getting there!
