It is located within walking distance to convenience store, a park called Xiang Yang Park and ShaanXi Nan Lu Subway Station. The entrance of the subway is located at Parkson departmental storefront and a few others. A good place to stay if you want to explore the French Concessionaire, Sun Yat Sen Museum and Zhou En Lai Former Residence. Do not miss a visit to Fuxing Park as well. Travelling using taxi to Yu Yuan Garden cost about RMB18. You can ask the reception to call the taxi (called chu zu che in mandarin). It will arrive at the door steps in a jiffy. You can stroll along Huai Hai Road and enjoy the stroll along Cartier, LV and some major brands. It is located a few door steps away from Howard Johnson Hotel and Dong Hu Hotel. I took the same Line 1 subway to Shanghai Circus World to enjoy a ERA circus show. Be there before 7pm to get a ticket. There is a few range of RMB 90 to RMB 500. Just get the RMB90 or RMB190 ticket as you will still get a good view of the circular stage. Worth a visit.
Reception call help you to get a taxi in no time at all. If you are travelling around Shanghai, get a taxi as it is around RMB20 -25 within distance of the Bund and Yu Yuan Garden.More
