Q: Can anyone recommend some youth hostels or cheaper motels/hotels in Shanghai? Thank you!

Can anyone recommend accomodations for me in Shanghai? I read that foreigners here are not allowed to stay in hotels below 3 stars. 

 

Ciao!

The Ibis Hotel at Yu Yuan is okay. You can get some cheap rates if you book online. The hotel is pretty basic, but clean and the location is great for sight seeing.

           Thank you. * What's the closest metro station to that hotel? 

* Also, do you have a website address and telephone number for that hotel?

I stayed at the Jinjiang Inn that was about 10 minutes walk fro the Bund. I use them quite often and rooms for 2 with breakfast are in the 250RMB range a night. Free internet, decent clean rooms and are found all over China.

A couple of links here. This is not the one I stayed at but looks fine and shows at around 260RMB for a single. I have stayed in lots of the chain and all are good value.

The one I stayed in was in an older area with lots of restaurants and alleys. There were many shops selling musical instruments in the area so some one more familiar may help

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
