A Little Bit Of Everything In Shanghai

Sydney Badger


Art galleries, boutiques, outdoor cafes and winding back alleys make this a great place to get lost in.

Take a midday break for a massage at Dragonfly Spa

Affordable massages from the pros - best perk about being a tourist in Shanghai.

Lunch at Xibo Xinjiang Rest. 锡伯新疆餐厅

Delicious Uighur food, an ethnic minority from the hills of NW Xinjiang. The menu, like the province, is a mish-mish of Uighur standards: all sorts of meats in all sorts of spices - a safe place to be adventurous with menu choices!

Haggling at the South Bund Fabric Market

Save some energy for the Fabric market where you should expect to haggle items down to 10% of the quoted price.

Disc Indoor Karting

Go-karts and a bar. Together. Under one roof. Open until 2am.

花马天堂 | Yunnan Dinner at Lost Heaven

With Bund views from the terrace, this is a great way to enjoy some of the best Yunnan (Southern Chinese) cuisine while checking off bund views from the list of things to see in Shanghai.

Listen to some jazz at Cotton Club

Tiny, dark and cozy jazz bar with great local and foreign talent performing every night.

I would stay at: URBN Hotel | 雅悦酒店

Spacious, modern yet comfortable rooms right in the middle of Jing-An with a traditional lane-house vibe. Only 26 rooms so feels more intimate than most big name hotels in the city.
