Stopping over in PVG for just over 24 hours, 7:25pm-8:10pm.

Any recommendations on what to do/where to stay?

Seems like Ive got it down to between Le Royal Méridien Shanghai (SPG) and the Andaz (Hyatt).

Plat with SPG and Diamond with Hyatt and using a confirmed suite upgrade. Price is the same, which would you take?

Really wanted to stay at the PH but its more then twice the price so not worth it IMO.

idk much about the hotels but the Le Royal Meridial is located next to "the bund" - if that makes any diff. really nice scenery.

these are pics i took from tonight (a few hours ago) - one at day and one at night

The bund, Nanjing road (is that what it's called?), Xintanedi (French concession). You take the fastest train in the world (maglev) to the city center and cabs from there.

Along the way you wonder if theres a very good reason Siemens built the first model of their train in China and not in Germany.

Thank you! Will I be able to figure out how to get to these places once there or should I figure it out now? (Does your cousin want to take me around? ;) )
