  1. Oh, the hotel you stay looks very nice. Can you tell me which one is among two options you’ve mentioned above? One thing I’m afraid is the transportation in Shanghai by metro system. Is this easy for foreigners without knowing Chinese to use? I can do it easily when I’m in Osaka. Thanks so much for the great post!
