See the best of Shanghai on a shoestring(转载)

??What to see: Just outside Yu Garden in a pond graced by lotus plants and goldfish stands the Huxingting teahouse and a huge bazaar. Wander through the crowds — weekdays are a bit less jammed than weekends — through a warren of shops selling silk blouses, tea, tourist kitsch and other chinoiserie. If the crowds get to be overwhelming, not one but two Starbucks outlets offer a chance for non-obtrusive people-watching.
  就在豫园外的一个池塘里,矗立着湖心亭茶馆和一个巨大的集市。在人群之中漫步-平日里人不多,周末挤满了人—走过卖丝绸衬衫,茶叶,和其他情调的商店 。
  Not far from Yu Garden is the Shiliupu ferry pier — terminal for cruises along the Huangpu river and for a 50 fen (about 7 cents) ferry ride to Dongchang Rd. and the glittering financial showcase of Pudong (literally east of the "'Pu"). Continually busy but not overcrowded except during rush hour, the ferry is one of the few cross-river commuting options for the bike and scooter crowd.
  离豫园不远就是十六铺码头-黄浦江沿线水上游轮的码头,花5角钱(约7美分)可以乘轮渡到东昌路。高峰时间人满为患,渡轮是为数不多的越江交通选择,为骑自行车和滑板车的人们。
   A quick No. 2 subway ride back to Puxi (west of the river) (only 3 yuan or 44 cents) will take you to Nanjing Rd., Shanghai's most famous shopping street. Nearby People's Square is the location of several other key sights, including the city's renowned Shanghai Museum, and the Urban Planning Exhibition Hall, with its huge, detailed model of the city now and into the future.
  快速的地铁二号线(只需要3元,或44美分),将带你到南京路(上海最著名的购物街)。附近的人民广场里包括著名的上海博物馆,以及城市规划展示馆(拥有庞大的,详细的上海市模型)。
  
   Admissions for those facilities are inexpensive, but a stroll through the French Concession, one of several zones controlled by foreigners before and during World War II, can be had for free. Ditto for a gander at Xintiandi, a cluster of renovated "shikumen" traditional buildings housing elegant coffee shops, clubs and boutiques — but check the menus before sitting down for a bite to eat.
  这些设施的门票很便宜,但在法租界漫步(在二战期间和之前由外国人控制的几个地区之一)是免费的。对于“新天地”(“石库门”传统建筑,里面有优雅的咖啡馆,俱乐部和精品店)也是一样-但在坐下来吃之前先检查一下菜单。
  
   
  While Shanghai's outskirts lack the rugged scenery of the Great Wall, day trips or overnight visits by train or bus to the close-by garden cities of Hangzhou and Suzhou are easy, inexpensive getaways.
  虽然上海的郊区缺少了长城这样的风景,到附近的园林城市杭州,苏州一日游或坐火车或公共汽车参观是容易且廉价的度假。
  
   Good eating: Shanghainese dishes tend to be relatively sweet and rich, without the stronger, hotter flavors of northern and western China. One highlight is xiaolongbao, dumplings plump full of piping hot, succulent juice — bite carefully.
  上海菜往往比较甜,没有中国北部和西部的辣味。一个亮点是小笼包(热气腾腾的多汁的包子)-小心地咬。
  Wujiang Road, which branches off of Nanjing Road, is a pedestrian street with a smorgasbord of options, inexpensive and otherwise. Other filling and affordable choices include Cantonese dim sum, especially at any of the city's Bifengtang restaurants,  Korean barbeque or Japanese set meals for well under $10 a head.
  吴江路是南京路步行街的支路。其他选择包括广东的点心(特别是在避风塘餐厅里),韩国烤肉或日本料理,每份低于10美元。
