    I have been here many times. It is such a touching story, in all of the world, Shanghai by far saved and hosted most jewish refugees during WW2.

    The museum is larger and more complete than you would expect. Very well done. Many artifacts and stories to find here.

    Maybe a small area, but of great meanings ! It's not inside the city centre, but very close to MTR. Don't miss it.

Where to stay in Shanghai

As one of China's top commercial cities and tourist destinations, Shanghai offers accommodations that range from backpacker-friendly haunts to five-star hotels in futuristic skyscrapers. Few world cities can rival Shanghai in terms of room variety, services, and prices, and all types of travelers can easily find suitable options based on their preference and budget limitations. Puxi and Pudong remain probably the best options for most foreign visitors, as these areas offer both modern hotels packed with amenities and older establishments loaded with traditional charm.
