9 days in Shanghai

Next week I'll be in Shanghai for 9 days. While my spouse will be working, I'll be left to explore the city with a friend. I've researched all the usual sight-seeing and shopping spots. I'm looking forward to doing a bike tour or two. I'm planning to scour the local newspapers when I get there for special events (concerts, art galleries). But still, I'm afraid that 9 days is a long time to be a tourist in one city, even one as big as Shanghai, and that I'll run out of things to do.

(from the reviews I've read of the expo, I'm not looking forward to that. I may attend in the evening once or twice).

Any recommendations to getting deep into Shanghai is appreciated.

Indeed 9 days is too much for Shanghai even you spend some time for shopping.

There are many toursits cities around Shanghai which are must see cities. You can make day trip to Ancient water like Tongli,Xitang ,nanxun and also the heavenly cities on the earth " Hangzhou" and "Suzhou". And if you still have several days left , you might also visit Huang Shan in Anhui province.

You are spending 8 days too much in Shanghai...LOL. Consider a side trip to Xi'an or Guilin or Beijing. It is much more a place for business than culture.
