Side trip to Shanghai

I have been invited by a friend to meet her family in Shanghai next summer. I plan to visit Taiwan first, then fly from Taipei to Shanghai. Has anyone on this forum done something similar? Any pratfalls?

Before coming back to Taipei a year and a half ago, I lived in Shanghai for 6 years and visited Taiwan often. I have friends who fly to Shanghai from Taipei 3 to 4 times a month for work. Pratfalls? None - but that assumes you know your way around the city. I suppose that’s true of, well, all cities.

Enjoy Shanghai. History, interesting people, constant change, awesome restaurants - Shanghai rocks. Bring a lot of cash (it’s an expensive town), and exercise common sense and a healthy amount of skepticism of deals that sound too good to be true (they are), and you should have a blast.

I’m moving this thread to International Travel.
