Publisher Comments:

You'll never fall into the tourist traps when you travel with Frommer's. It's like having a friend show you around, taking you to the places locals like best. Our expert authors have already gone everywhere you might go — they've done the legwork for you, and they're not afraid to tell it like it is, saving you time and money. No other series offers candid reviews of so many hotels and restaurants in all price ranges. Every Frommer's Travel Guide is up-to-date, with exact prices for everything, dozens of color maps, and exciting coverage of sports, shopping, and nightlife. You'd be lost without us!

Shanghai, the most progressive and international of the mainland cities in China (and also the largest), already attracts millions of visitors annually. Recent projects, new attractions, and a booming nightlife and restaurant scene are making Shanghai an even more popular tourist destination. The world's tallest hotel--the 88-story Grand Hyatt, with the world's highest hotel swimming pool--is emblematic of Shanghai's modern style.

Frommer's Shanghai includes a Chinese Language Appendix, plus Chinese translations of hotel, restaurant, and attraction names. You'll also find special tips for business travelers, plus sections on Chinese ways and manners, the pros and cons of joining a tour and traveling on your own, and the best shopping buys. There are lots of accurate two-color maps plus complete details on getting there, getting around, and coping with the language barrier.
