Shanghai Tips/Suggestions?

Rum, beer, women, movies, nice websites, gaming, etc., without interrupting the flow of martial threads.

Yes, stay away from all offers of anything on Nanjing Lu. If you want anything be sure you are initiating the sale. If anyone approaches you for anything you are a target. I blended in with my mix race background but I saw heard of many long time foreigners living in China get ripped off but on the other hand it goes with the territory, you are seen as a rich foreigner on their land.

Also Qing Hai food (Muslim) is also very good and everywhere. Start with the beef noodles.

And there are the rando nutters... on Nanjing Lu.

The trip has solidified! Got a great deal on nonstop flights from/to LAX and a hotel for four nights for $1k!

Planning on being at People's Park most days, and I'll try to set up private sessions with Ramsey Dewey and see who else I might be able to meet with/play with.

Am I reading this right, that I may not need a visa if I'm travelling to Shanghai for five days?

***Edited to add: Nevermind. Looks like it's only if Shanghai is a stop on a longer trip:

"..produce his / her own valid international travel document and onward air / vessel / train ticket to a third country (region) with confirmed date and seat to the carrier’s agent..."
