WoW! This is an F'n scream'n deal! I flew to Shanghai once on Delta World Business Class for work back in 2008. The flight was a great experience.

I got the VISA. It cost under $200 for multiple entries. Had to send my passport away to SFO so the consulate there can do the deal. It took a FEW WEEKS to get it back. They return the passport with a note stating 'trafficking of illegal drugs is punishable by death'. Heed this warning and leave ur dope @ home.

@ PVG, I'd thought I'd be oppressed because I was a stupid American. It was a normal airport experience, even through customs.

In the city, both sides..or even outside the city where I worked, THERE WAS NO TRASH OR DEBRIS ANYWHERE ON THE ROAD OR SIDEWALK.

I know this is a bit shocking, but it is surprisingly clean there. Cleaner than most US cities, including DT Seattle. At around 23:00 local time, they close the streets and all of these workers come out and sweep/clean the city. During the day, sanitation workers (little old ladies) would go through the trash, taking out recyclables and put them into the recycling bins right next to the trash cans (stupid humans that are so lazy to not recycle a plastic bottle when the bin is right there?!)

I was along the Pu Dong at night with my local guide. It was the evening of the People's Celebration, where earlier during the day, the city had over FOUR MILLION peeps all around town. Lining the river were all of these cops / cadets. I thought to myself that movie with Richard Gere, Red Square, was it? I thought it was gonna be the end of the world for me and all of these other peeps.

We went up to one of the officers, dresses in uniform, with standard octagon hat, standing at attention (no riot gear, no gun). We asked what was the meaning of him and his comrades standing there. When he responded, he saluted us, said "Welcome citizen" (roughly translated) and replied they were there to prevent people from getting too close to the river. The crown was loud, celebratory in demeanor, but not rambunctious (just really crowded, I had to hold the hand of my guide real tight so she and I could stay together and not get separated).

When we were done talking to the cadet, he saluted us again, then stood at attention again.

I was like, "holy fuk!" It was nothing like from the movies or TV. Most polite cops I've ever been around.

Downtown Shanghai is super affluent. Food is cheap and delicious (FTR, "Panda Express" or "P F Chang" are not Chinese food!). There are 'flea markets' out in the open underground near mass transit to buy all of your pirated goods.

Hotels are expensive, not unlike DT NYC or any other major city. You won't be able to buy cheap brand-name clothes. I stayed outside of the city, where my work was. It was much more affordable and just a 20 minute train ride to DT. "Free internet" in hotel room, but the government monitors EVERYTHING! Best to bring your own porn to view instead of surfing for it.

'Hostess karaoke clubs'...FTW! 8-]

You can bargain, ANYWHERE. Silk scarves (they demonstrate by burning a small piece), paintings (gotta look closely to see which is the original and reproduction), all kinds of other stuff can be had for cheap.

There is also this eight-story building selling computer electronics and accessories. You can buy anything computer related there. I had to buy fiber-optic cables to connect a SAN to a server. They had it. I could not find the sexy mouse pads, where the boobs are the wrist rests. I asked around for the to bring back to America as gifts, the workers say the government is strict on porn and the like. And, you can bargain with these folks.

The water tastes horrible, but is safe to drink. Hotel had water cooler in room. Need different electrical plug adapter, everything is 220V so make sure your device's power adapter can take 220V.

One last detail...traveling in Feb, maybe even Mar -- it is bitterly cold at night. The "Siberian cold front" gets channeled through the city for weeks.

For $500 (normally over $1K) a head to fly to PVG, screaming deal! laugh out loud

Just went to Shanghai in early December for the new Shanghai Disney that opened in June 2016. For traveling to Shanghai you do not technically need a China Visa. You are allowed to get a 144 hour(6 days) travel Visa if you don't plan to leave the city region. The only catch is you have to enter from one country and fly into another besides the start country. So this might not qualify as its RT direct to and from Shanghai. But at this price even taking the flight over and flying someplace else might be worth it.

Been to Shanghai for work. Very fun city, despite the air quality. Easily worth $450 plus the cost of a visa (I think $200ish).

Back in 2008, Delta's WBC was tiered above their first and business class seats.
