    If you go shanghai to eat Dingtaifeng then i think a bit wasted lah... try the Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao at the Hu Xin Ting teahouse inside CHeng Huang Miao.

    For sightseeing, the usual place will be Bund, Pudong (Jin Mao Building or Oriental Pearl TV Tower, take your pick), Cheng Huang Miao, Yu Yuan.

    Xiang Yang market is a must go... if you pay 50% of what they asked, you pay too much!

    The original chinese DVDs are very very cheap & good quality.

    RMB10 - 20 each. Bought a bunch back the last time.

    Only peeve is that the copyright screen can be a bit long winded and at times there is the film china distributor logo poping at the corner of the show....

    If you go the the Xiang Yang flea market, be very, very careful of pickpockets. They are the Wulin Gauzhou there. Safest to put money, passport, Hp inside your cam bag - a padded cam bag very safe la. For that matter, any crowded places, be very careful.
    I love big car, big house, big lenses, but small apertures.

    U get thrown out of the shop is a good thing :P
    just hop right into another shop lah!

    i always "claimed" that the other store is offering me say RMB90 already so why should i pay you RMB100 etc... so max they can charge you is RMB90 already... happy bargaining...

    As for Snowing in Shanghai at this time.... i think it's indeed rare but i predicts winter will come earlier this year as i can feel the temperature is indeed lower than previous years... so bring more clothes... for conveniences, wear more layers than thick clothes so you can always remove one layer or more if too warm....
