What were your dislikes or unsatisfied in terms of hotel services and facilities? Would you plan to come back again for future trip?
I have had a good rest in that hotel during my business travel. And I will stay at Swissotel Grand Shanghai in the future.

Which places did you visit during you stay in the destination and which scenic spots have left you deep impressions?

Basically I do not have time to go sightseeing in Shanghai as it was business travel. But I have been to Sanya for vacation for several times, and Yalong Bay and Wuzhizhou Island are very good places to go to.

The urban layout in Shanghai is getting better and better, especially urban area and main roads. The high building density is a problem that needs attention.
