Best Time to Travel
The best time to visit Shanghai is between September and November. The autumn is usually dry and allows you to explore the city without the effects of its famously warm summer.
Getting There and Around
Shanghai is conveniently connected via two major international airports. There are direct six-hour flights from Delhi that cost around 25000 Rupees if booked ahead of time. Once in town, you should use public transport that gets you around town easily and inexpensively. Most signboards are in Mandarin as well as English, so traveling is not a hassle.
Where to Stay
Regal International Hotel is situated in one of Shanghai’s posh districts and offers amenities such as a pool and multi-cuisine restaurants. There is no better hotel to include in your Shanghai itinerary.
A traveler at heart, I have been to 22 countries on 6 continents. My favorite experiences are plunging in to sub-zero Antarctic waters, renovating a Buddhist monastery in Sri Lanka and hiking Borneon jungles. I am also an engineer, a public speaker, a sustainability believer and a polar explorer. Follow my misadventures on www.passportuncontrol.com and Instagram @geeknextdoor
