Going to shanghai for a weekend, any hotel to recommend a first timer?
What I know is that it is a vast city and should plan where you stay based on where you want to visit.
I have no idea where to visit except for the shopping and the Bund.
Thanks.

I stayed in Broadway Mansions overlooking the Bund. If you just require a place to sleep and spend the whole day out, this is the hotel. Of course there a cheaper ones but the location is safe and walking distance to the Bund and other tourist spot. Check the following link for booking and rates.

Get a service apartment is better if you have a few people traveling.

My friend got something stolen after some china guy tent to said it that he is a friend of mine in shanghai when i was not around. I think the hotel people leak out some info to stranger, who are and where we come from. My advise is becareful and just get a 3 star hotel will do because you dont really need to be in there for 24hrs.

I stayed in YMCA before. clean and fuss free. of cos if u got loads to splurge theres the ritz
clubbing... la fabrique is not bad, the people who run it were running sparks in sg last time i think
xin tian di is not to be missed
have wonderful xiao long pao at din tai fung (theres a branch in xintiandi) cos its so cheap compared to SG (S$3 for 10 xiaolongpao)
u can visit this water village close by to shanghai, supossed to be quite quaint. there r day trips there.err.. check with the travel desks there, they dun really rip u off la.
Visit Nanjing road for shopping.. close by there is this "flea market" where they sell loads of fakes and cheap clothes
