Shanghai Warnings Or Dangers Tips by MikeySoft
Shanghai Warnings and Dangers: 132 reviews and 74 photos
On Nan Jing Road, between the Bund and the pedestrian area of Nan Jing Road, young couples approaches foreigners. They usually say they are students from Beijing University. They asked you to take a look at their art gallery.
I was approached many times in this area. I always politely said I do not have the time. I have heard they take you to an art gallery where the art is not that good but charge very high prices. This supposes scan has been talked about very often on the internet.
It is up to you if you want to go but be aware.
This does not seem to be as bad as the famous Tea House scam. Young people say they want to practice their English and take you to a Tea House. You get a bill at the end for something like 1000 rbm. About $147 USD.
This scam is even listing as a warning in the US Government travel warnings.
This is a real shame because I like to meet local people when I travel. They make it harder for locals that just want to be friendly.
Please rate this and my other tips when you find them helpful, interesting or you like the photos.
