The original campus now resides in Xuhui, one of the commercial center in Shanghai. Several buildings in that campus are also selected as outstanding historical buildings in Shanghai.
Shanghai sits at the mouth of the Yangtze River, the longest river in China. It is the largest Chinese city and "a city of skyscrapers". With a history of more than 200 years, Shanghai was once the financial center of the Far East. Today, Shanghai is the largest economic and transportation center in China. The municipal government is working towards building Shanghai into a modern metropolis and into a world economic, financial, trading and shipping center.

The most convenient way to get to the hotel is by taxi. It will cost about 170 CNY(~28 USD) and 45 minutes from Pudong Internationl Airport to the hotel, and 40 CNY(~7 USD) and 15 minutes if your flight lands on Hongqiao Airport. As long as few taxi drivers can speak English, it is strongly recommended that you take a note with you with Chinese address of your hotel on it. We’ve made one for you shown as follows.
For flights landing on Pudong Airport, Airport Bus provides a much cheaper way to get to your destination. You can take the Line 8 Bus outside the airport and get off at the Renmin East Rd(人民东路城东路) station of this route. You might need the following Chinese note shown to the driver in case you do not know how to explain Renmin East Rd. It will take you 2 hours and 7 CNY(~1.2 USD). After you get off, you can take a taxi to Hengshan Hotel. It will take you 20 minutes and 40 CNY(~7 USD) which is cheaper. Please refer to the previous information for a Chinese address of the hotel.
