City Review: Shanghai, China
The people of Shanghai are very capitalistic and concerned about making money. However, I was surprised that the city does still offer chinese culture. The city can be as asian or western as you want it to be. I wasn't impressed with the back alleys of Nanjing road (Chinatown in NYC is better). There is a lack of tourist things to do and see. The night life is great with free drinks and entry to most westerners (they give you a table and grey goose for free). Watch out for tea shop scams.
Insider Tip:-If someone seems too friendly and says you should check out a tea festival or tea shop be CAUTIOUS. They are trying to take you somewhere, order a tea, and make you pay a ridiculously overpriced amount. -Get to the clubs before 11:30 if your a guy and want to get in for free. -Barter at lest 30%-40% lower with the back alley shops. Their beginning negotiating price is extremely high.
