Voice of Travelers to Shanghai

Vacation to Shangai

Hello my name is Lu-anne. I was raised in the Uk but I am originally from Shanghai. As a child I was adopted by my parents and we moved into the Uk. I had no memory of where I came from as I was very young when I left Shanghai. My husband decided to take me back to my roots just to get a glimpse of Shanghai. We used his travel agency to get the air ticket. This ticket outlet also assisted us in getting our visas. The ticket to Shanghai was by AIR CHINA and the return ticket was by Shanghai airlines. On arrival I was impressed by the city. It just as I had pictured Shanghai would be. there were so many people and the life in the city was incredible. I could not converse in my Chinese language with the people who tried to talk to me while in the markets in Shanghai as they thought I was their own. We completed the trip by visiting Shanghai Disney resort before boarding the ticket to the place.

Business trip to Shangai

My name is John Maputo. I recently quit my job and decided to go to China to source for suppliers for the new business I wanted to start for my business. I got my air ticket via South Eastern airlines. The return ticket was by AIR CHINA who had ticket discounts during that time of the year. The place was overcrowded when I arrived. I managed to visit several factories for bags, shoes and lady purses. I was staying at the Longemont Hotel Shanghai which had great service. After getting all the contacts I needed in Shenzhen I boarded my ticket back home.
