Main two reasons I picked this hotel were 1) walking distances to everything else and 2) price and I wasn’t disappointed.
Otherwise, Another great hotel in an excellent area is The Langham Hotel Xintiandi (Luxury, Upscale)
I did all the below by getting a hop-on hop-off bus ticket, to see the spots below and get off the bus in the location I wanted to see more of.
Yuyuan Old Street
Xintiandi (LOVED this area)
Xin Tian Di
Jing’an Temple (on Nanjing West Road)
Other things that are recommended but I did not have the time to try:
Shanghai Art Museum
Jade Buddha Temple
Huangpu River cruise
My visit to Shanghai was very quick, for that, I tried to see as much as I could with the tour bus and enjoy the rest of the night by taking it easy and just walking around. That’s what I did, and loved it!
