I'll be travelling to Shanghai solo early next year and still trying to nail down the best area for me to stay in. Looking for an area where, when I walk out of my hotel, I'm near lots of restaurants and bars/pubs that are open late and near public tranportation so I can go anywhere quickly around Shanghai.
I've been reading the forums and believe the Puxi area may be best, but I understand there's a number of districts that comprise that. So, if anyone can help me narrow down the specific area or even any hotels (up to $85/night US) I would be very appreciative! Thanks in advance!
