The Magical China Trip 2012

Shanghai Wish List

USA | Friday, 14 September 2012 | Views [653]

I will have 4 nights and 3 complete days in Shanghai - (Wednesday night) Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.  
  • One thing I would like very much is to meet Professor Wu; I will make myself available for whichever day and time is convenient for the professor.  
  • I would also like help to visit the Shanghai Auto Museum at No. 7565 Boyuan Road, Anting, 201805 Shanghai Municipality.  I believe a contact is Ms. Zhu Jichao.  This museum has a model (not accurate, but an attempt) of the Liao Ning truck my father designed. 
  • I would also very much like to find 1462/10 Rue Lafayette, Shanghai.  This was my father's address beginning in late 1935 and going through 1936.  Who knows if the building is still there?   
I don't know how much time those three things will take.  However, they are my first priorities in Shanghai.  Any time left will be for seeing the sites.  I have listed things I would like to see in order of my preference.  Also, if you have suggestions for what to see, please let me know.
  • The Bund (Puxi)
  • Yu Garden
  • Xintiandi and Tianzi Fang
  • Nanjing Road
I know this is a lot to do in three days.  I will not expect to do everything; it is my "wish list."
