I've been to Shanghai a couple of times, but never ventured far from the city. Anyone been on any good day trips that can be taken from the JW in Shanghai? TerraCotta Warriors are about 800 miles (flight) away. Anyone done that in a day/ Other ideas? Thanks for the advice!
Try Suzhou..~ one hour from Shanghai...Tiger Hill, Beautiful Gardens to see, Silk factory tours, & JinJi Lake has laser show on weekends that always attract a good crowd. Renaissance in Suzhou industrial park is very comfortable place to stay with restuarants and shopping close by.
Yes, i was going to suggest Suzhou as well. A beautiful ancient city with modern vibrant city life. It's only 1 hour from Shanghai and well suited for day trip by train or by car. HangZhou is another beautiful city but a little far from Shanghai.
