Language

The national language of China is Mandarin, also known as Putonghua, but many Chinese also speak their local dialects. In Shanghai, people speak Shanghai dialect as well. But since there are signs written in English and many people here can speak English, it won’t be too difficult for you to get around in Shanghai. However, if you wish to travel outside Shanghai during your trip, it’s recommended that you should hire an English-speaking guide or book a tour program from a reputable travel agency, like Shanghai China Travel International Co. Ltd.

Taxi

Shanghai's 45,000 taxis are easy to flag down in leisure hours, but not in rush hours. The taxi drivers are bound to offer you good service. If you do not speak Chinese, it is recommended that you have your destination written down in characters.

Climate

The weather is warm and humid in Shanghai. The temperature is always 24~33°C in July.

Food

There are many restaurants around Wujiao Chang Wanda Plaza. You can find various kinds of food there, French, Italian, Japanese, Shanghai, Cantonese, Sichuan and vegetarian.
