After quite a long flight (from Minsk to Moscow, from Moscow to Shanghai) we finally got to a hotel that we booked in advance. Thanks to our business partners we didn't need to call for a taxi, but still it was quite a difficult voyage. The hotel The Bundriverside is located in the center of Shaghai, I would definitelly reccomend it, esp. for those who is going to Automechanika. It also has such a great view and very substantial breakfast.
After a good rest we went to the exhibition. It's better to register for it in advance, if you don't want to stay in line for much time. It's quite big, there are a lot of hall, it's impossible to go throug all of them within 1 day, it will take some time. It's very convinient to reach it with subway (from our hotel it was smth like several stops away).
After long day at the exhibition wу went to the hotel. You can see such a nice view on the road to subway. After work we decided to shopp a little. For those who likes "brand" Chinese goods it's better to go to Techological museum station, which is between the hotel and exhibition station. After that you can walk in the center.
After exhibition we went to Suzhou to visit our business partners. It was quite long distance from Shanghai, but there are high speed trains and it will take only 3 hours to reach 1000 km. It was a very nice province city, but it's better to travel with somebody who spaeks Chinese.
