I‘m soon travel in Shanghai on Feb 8th

4 Answer(s)

Yifan Wei: Hi, I’m a local Shanghainese and I am in Shanghai right now. I highly recommend you to put off your trip.

You can have clean food and water but I don’t think it’s a good timing. People will not start working until Feb. 9th, and it might extend according to these days situation.

Me myself, cancelled all the hangouts during Chinese lunar year festival. Just stay at home, watch movies, play puzzles and chat with my friends online. All of us wanna hangout but we know for the people we love and ourselves, we should not do that.

For your own safety, put it off or cancel the plan might be the best choice. Shanghai will always welcome you!

How is the situation of Coronavirus in China? And locals in Wuhan?

4 Answer(s)

Vivian Yan: What I heard from my friends in Wuhan:

Her whole family stayed at home all day.
They cannot drive cars to get more groceries anywhere, and they are waiting for proper arrangements shortly.
They still held strong hope as the whole of society is helping them. At least today, Alibaba started to provide necessities for Wuhan, especially for the doctors and nurses.

Where to “see” the history of Shanghai?

1 Answer(s)

Luciana Qian: (1) Shanghai History Museum (上海市历史博物馆)
Located on West Nanjing Rd near the People’s Square. Easy to access. The building is the former Shanghai Race Club, a historical and cultural heritage of Shanghai. You can see the history of Shanghai here from the Shang dynasty till 1949 for free.
In the same place, there is another museum called Shanghai Revolution Museum (上海革命历史博物馆). Shanghai played an important part in revolution 100 years ago and there is a close connection between the city and CCP, so the story is not just about Shanghai.

(2) Shanghai History Museum (上海城市历史发展陈列馆)
I would call it a exhibition rather than a museum. And I found out that the official English name of THIS museum is the same as the one mentioned before. Quite confusing. It is located in the Oriental Pearl TV Tower. Easy to access too. The biggest point are the exhibits about concession history.

Hope you enjoy!
