The New York Times has published a new travel piece to our little town titled “36 Hours in Shanghai.” While we’d normally roll our eyes and scoff at these kind of articles and their incredibly milquetoast recommendations (Oh really? We should try the Jean Georges? Thanks! Taste of China indeed!), we think this guide would actually represent a fun day-and-a-half out for Shanghai newbies. We’d probably skip Crystal Jade and 100 Century Avenue (unless you like expensive, mediocre food in uncomfortable chairs), but we applaud the inclusion of Lost Heaven and Yang’s. Next time our friends come into town, it’s nice to know we have something to forward to them if we’re too lazy to come up with a travel plan ourselves.
