I've been to Shanghai four times, for thee-day weekends when I lived in Beijing. I went there to visit Disneyland, and loved staying at a hotel called the Home Inn (Kangqiao Xiuyan Road Metro Station) 如家快捷酒店(上海康桥秀沿路地铁站店)(原秀沿路工业园区店) because it was affordable, close to the park, and lets foreigners stay there.

One of the most unexpected great cities I have been to. Although I was only here for a 24 hour layover, I will most certainly come back for a longer stay. If you trip is as short as mine, it is possible to see so many things in one day.
