5 Best Hotels in Shanghai with Stunning Views from SGD$200

Shanghai is the biggest city in China. It is home to more than 23 million people and has more skyscrapers than any other city in the world.

Shanghai is able to blend the present with the future, the hip with the luxurious, and the lavish with the nostalgic. Shanghai is a fantastic destination for art deco-style enthusiasts.

What’s great for first-time visitors to Shanghai is that it is relatively easy to get around because the Shanghai Metro has been extensively developed and has 393 stations spread throughout the city as well as connecting major attractions.

Are you planning a trip to Shanghai? To begin, all foreign passport holders will need to apply for a visa through the China embassy in order to enter China. Singaporeans visiting China, on the other hand, do not need to apply if their trip is limited to 15 days.

No trip to Shanghai would be complete without a photo of The Bund! We have rounded up some of the best hotels to enjoy the best views of the city’s skyline!
