The Grand Hyatt Shanghai: PH’s Not So Little Brother

The Grand Hyatt Shanghai must get sick of living in the shadow his younger brother, the Park Hyatt. That is literally the case here as the size and stature of the Grand Hyatt which is in the Jin Mao building is dwarfed by the Park Hyatt which is in the World Financial Center.

Shanghai Fabric Market: What Is Friend Price?

TPOL is the best bargainer. Period. That's the attitude you need when you enter the tailor market at Liujiubang Lu. There's nothing more fun than spending a Saturday afternoon picking out shirts, suits, and button combinations. Sometimes the suits end up looking like something from Star Trek.

Air China Business PVG-KIX: Different Plane, Same Product

The trick of my $200, 30,000 US AIR Miles ticket was that all flights must be on Air China metal. I've flown Air China many times and for the most part have not been impressed. I was excited that this flight was on an A321 versus the standard 737. Perhaps this would make the flight different.

Le Royal Méridien Shanghai for Halloween

I am partial to Le Royal Méridien because it is located next to my old apartment building. It is also located next to Nanjing Walking Street, an overcrowded place that is worth seeing once but should otherwise be avoided.
