If its spectacular views of the famed Shanghai Bund then staying in Pudong (East of the Pu) in some very tall hotels can be breathtaking. But street life is limited as its the main business / tourist district of Shanghai.
Staying in Puxi (West of the Pu) is our preference as it is generally where the best lifestyle options are – bars, restaurants, retail and other services. Our studio is in Puxi a mere 5 minutes from Xintiandi.
If you need hotel advice just reach out as we can help with corporate rates at a few selected properties.
