Shanghai hotels are very numerous. I stayed at something called the FX Furama or something. It was a bit of a strange boutique hotel, but the price was good and the location was fantastic. It was 10 minutes walk to East Nanjing Road and 5 minutes walk to the Bund. It was also around $300 a night cheaper than the Westin down the road!
First of all, apologies for not replying to this earlier as I just saw it, not sure how I may have missed it...
Thank you so much for your very informative and detailed reply. Yes it would awesome if we were to meet in China...Sept-Oct is the most realistic time frame for me to make it there. From reading your posts, seems that Guangzhou is the place to be and it's right accross Hong Kong, so that's where I'll more than likely to go. Would love also if you could put me in touch with single women there. By the way, are these older or younger women as I'm 31?
This would be my first time in China as a reconnaissance trip and then return and stay for a few months to 1-2 years to fully immerse myself into the culture and learn as much of the language as possible. I will be visiting a few cities, any that you or anyone else familiar with China can suggest? I know that Guangzhou is one of them, any other? I hear that Chengdu is a great place to be, anyone in here has been there and would like to share their experience here? That would be awesome!
Once again, thank you so much Xiongmao and everyone else for your contribution here.
I'm still in the UK at the moment but I am planning on living in China for 1-2 years, probably at the end of this year. I'll gladly show anyone around!
Guangzhou is good for women because the place is awash with office ladies from the provinces. They're bright, well educated and often speak fluent English.
Chengdu, Changsha and other places are also good for women. However, they're not very interesting places whereas Guangzhou is hot, insanely busy and a great place to learn about business.
I know a few Guangzhou women but I need to work on my businesswoman friend who knows every pretty office lady in Guangdong Province. Then we're in business!
I'm also intending to go to University there and study something or other. Fees are low and Universities are the best place to meet hot women!!!
You spent 1,000 CNY for a hotel for ONE NIGHT? Compared to the Westin's 2,998 I suppose it WAS 'cheaper'.
You can get rooms for 30 to 168 CNY. In every city in China. Except, perhaps, Hong Kong.
Anything above 498 CNY is gilding the lily and massive over-kill.
Do any of you guys know how the girls are like in Xiamen? I have heard the most beautiful girls are from Chongqing, Suzhou, Chengdu, Hangzhou, and Guangzhou, but I haven't heard much about Xiamen on this site.
I will travel to Shanghai this Saturday and almost have my itinerary set, but I'm unsure about whether visiting Xiamen is worth it or not
