We are thinking of going to Shanghai for holiday, although we just don't know where to begin as we have never travelled that far out before. We will probably go away for about 10 days, so the main question is is it possible to go to Shanghai for 10 days (is there enough to do, any day trips etc?), or is it normal to spend a few days somewhere else too (for example, do people normally combine Shanghai with a trip to another city or even another country...e.g Thailand? or Hong Kong?).
We would like to keep costs down as much as possible but at the same time this is probably a once in a life time trip for us so we would like to make the most of it. Maybe a company does package holidays that include a couple of places such as Shanghai / Bangkok? I don;t really have a feel for how far apart these places are.
Any advice would be appreciated! thanks
(we would be flying from London or Manchester)
