History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood. Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can still be found in buildings and park monuments. Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without taking you too far away from the city center. Some of the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.
Unfortunately I was not able to take the much raved about ghetto tour led by Dvir as he was out of town during my visit to Shanghai. I however decided to make a trip down on my own and I must say it was the highlight of my entire holiday! At my own pace, I spent about 2 hrs at...
If you are in the neighborhood, this place is worth a visit. The architecture is unique and you can definitely get some interesting black and white photographs if you are into that sort of thing.
Also worth going if you’ve always wanted to be an extra in Terry Gilliam dystopian movie.
We discovered this bridge while walking from the cruise terminal toward the Bund . It is old but in perfect condition . It is a good transition point between the colonial buildings of the Bund and the very modern architecture of Pudong . Coming back in the evening , we found the bridge to be lighted and it gave it...
Agree with other posters...great view of Shanghai skyline. Get there early to score a seat along the windows. They don’t allow tripods, so for serious photographers looking for a good skyline shot this isn’t the place unless you go freehand. Another skyline bar shooting spot that is more relaxed is atop Hotel Indigo
For a hotel location it is a bit more expensive, but the food is great. We got the peking duck course and it was one of the best we've had. All the food we ordered was great and the service was top notch.
"Best Indian in Shanghai isn't saying a whole lot"

I went to this restaurant on the claim that it's the best Indian restaurant in Shanghai or one of the best two or whatever. Taj Mahal restaurant in Pittsburgh is better, as are many other Indian restaurants I've been to outside (not to mention inside) India. You won't be disappointed but you won't be thrilled.
Lovely place. Expensive ? Yes. But you get what you pay for.
Why visit this place ?
Young vibes all around.
You get teleported to the favourite cafe. And it is Worth it.
If you're a Friends FAN.
There's a separate Joey's room attached to the cafe. Do visit or feel free to ask the staff.
ate here with colleagues two weeks ago. I come to Shanghai often and sometimes get bored of asian food and western fine dining. Came in here on a rainy afternoon after visiting Christies which is right next door. A very good reasonably priced meal. I had the escargots and the sole. My colleagues had a cut of meat for 2....
This is how a hotel should be. From design, to facilities, to service, to attitude of the staff, to house keeping, to food, this is a a top class banyan tree property without a doubt.
The GM of this hotel should be congratulated, he or she is doing an impeccable job. Good leadership in hotels matters.
I’m certain the Chefs...
It’s been a long time since I’d enjoyed staying in a hotel so
Much. Fantastic vibe and best view of the bund. Great staff and very helpful. Only complain will be to take out the mao tai of the foi gras on the kitchen table’s menu, I’m sure the locals love it, but kills the flavor for a foreigner. Will...
Great location, great views from waterfront rooms, Vue Bar is most enjoyable as are the restaurants. Would stay there again. Easy to walk to the Bund or even to Nanjing Road. Not hard to take the Maglev to Pudong and grab a taxi from there to the Hotel.
This hotel is in a great location. Short distance for a stroll on the Bund as well as being .
Good breakfast and service. Decent size room( including the bathroom) overlooking the Shanghai skyline. On the Bund a new and exciting Adult playground is almost completed adding to the 6 km loop walking/ jogging .Stayed 2 nights
Location not that great - not main downtown, but classic decent 5 star hotel - bathrooms bigger than usual, and breakfast buffet was challenged to make special smoothie and they delivered. All in all very solid - nothing out of the ordinary.
