I felt this guide truley gave you an insight on Shanghai. Because of this book, I was able to get a taste of everything in one week! Unfortunately, Shanghai is such a vast and growing city, that a guide could never keep up. This guide gave you all the tourist sights, but never mentioned the backstreets or small (amazingly good) 'local's' restaurants, such as Mr. Su's in Pudong. Although, I must say it was extremely helpful to have all the phone numbers and adresses to give to the hotel front desk to call ahead of time to be sure the place was still there (extremely important in Shanghai) and to give the adresses to the taxi drivers in Chinese (also extremely important)! I highly recommend this book to anyone visiting Shanghai, but I also recommend you find someone who's been there for more than a week that can give you all the local tips (also very important).Was this review helpful?
