I just came back from a three week vacation in China China is an
amazing country with lots to do and see We spent about 5 days in
Shanghai and the surrounding areas I am not aware of any jewellery
related attractions around Shanghai. They are in the midst of getting
ready for the worlds fair which starts May 2010.
There is a huge amount of construction going on, causing major
traffic jams. Allow lots of time to get from place to place.
English is not widely spoken. It would probably be a good idea for
you to learn Chinese if you plan to live there.
While there we visited the Shanghai museum, walked along the Bund - a
historical area, travelled to Hangzhou which is a very nice lake town
about two hours drive from Shanghai Lots of shopping opportunities if
that is what you enjoy both on the upscale Nanjing Road and Old
Market which is a bargainers paradise. If you have time you should
tour a silk factory or a silk museum in Suzhou, about 2 hrs drive
from Shanghai. The process of making Silk is very interesting.
Good Luck in Your Journey
