BIENVENIDO A Shanghai
Welcome to the InterContinental Shanghai Pudong. I am Tim, working in Concierge of the hotel. My team and I are delighted to have you staying with us and we are here to ensure that you have an unforgettable experience in Shanghai.
El conserje de Intercontinental Pudong Shanghai es informativo y de ayuda, el equipo le ayudará a explorar la ciudad con sus Conocimientos locales.
Xintiandi is an area of Shanghai that teems with life. You will find a full range of restaurants, bars and shops located in authentic 'Shikumen' architecture. You can enjoy lunch from a large and varied choice of restaurants in these wonderful old buildings. A 30 minutes walk from Xintiandi is the Shanghai Museum where you will find the history and treasures of China, a must for all visitors fond of Chinese history. Having seen the past, just go next door to see the extraordinary plans for this city's future at the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Centre. It's spectacular to see the plans, and almost comforting, as this city is growing so fast that it sometimes feels like it has a life of its own.
Shanghai is an incredible but hectic city, so take the evening to relax. Enjoy a fantastic dinner in one of the a lot of restaurants on the Bund, take in the view of the Huangpu river and see the fiery sunset that somehow feels so appropriate; Shanghai is a city with so much energy you would believe it could burn out the sun. If you feel infatuated with this impressive stretch, take a cruise down the river, see the wonderful architecture from a distance and feel the city regenerating for tomorrow.
If you toast with someone who is older than you or his position is higher than you, your glass must be lower than his to show your respect in China.
Destination in Chinese Characters
Most people cannot read pinyin language (Chinese in western letters). Make sure that you have the address of your destination written down in Chinese characters and always take a Business Card from the hotel when you leaving.
The Chinese are loathed to say 'no' or admit to not knowing something. If you ask a question several times and do not get a proper answer it is likely that they do not know the answer. Please try not make a Chinese person lose face by asking questions that they cannot answer as it will embarrass them in front of others.
Traffic rules in Shanghai work differently to most other cities with the largest vehicle going first. Please take care when crossing the street. A green light does not mean that there is no car turning left. Please make sure you look left, right, front, back, up and down before crossing the road.
¿SABÍA QUÉ? ?
The Maglev Train is the fastest in the world and Shanghai is the only place which has one. It takes you eight and a half minutes from Shanghai Pudong Airport to the Long Yang Road Station, a distance of 30km with a high speed of 431km/h.
Pudong area, where our hotel is located, was farmland only around 18 years ago. People used to say that it was better to have a room as large as a bed in Puxi than have a whole apartment in Pudong. The InterContinental opened as the first 5-star hotel in Pudong in 1996.
Shanghai Jewish Corner
Shanghai Hongkou District used to be a place where Jews took sanctuary during World War II. Now there is a Synagogue Museum at 62 Changyang Road.
QUÉ METER EN LA MALETA
Appropriate clothing and good walking shoes
Shanghai has four seasons so make sure you carry appropriate clothing. The temperature in winter can be below zero degrees Celsius whilst in summer it can pass 35 degrees Celsius. The humidity is very high all year round which makes the temperature warmer in summer and colder in winter.
Hotel address and telephone number
Taxi drivers are not familiar with the English pronunciation for the hotels in Shanghai. Try to get the address in Chinese characters beforehand or at least the hotel telephone number so you can ask the operator to tell the taxi drivers where to go. To avoid all of that hassle it is best to book a pick up service.
If you require medicine for a health condition please make sure you put it in your hand luggage since bags regularly get lost at airports. Chinese pharmacies do not trade in many international pharmaceuticals so it is safer to bring along your own.
