  1. i wish i had known about this when i was in shanghai last year, it would have been a great guide to the coolest places.

    I always drop in to shanghai tang when i can as i love their products and they always make great gifts. the tailor service is also worth a look as they make the most amazing cheongsams – it is nice to window shop!

  2. You can really see how apps are going… These ideas will be developed more for tourism i’m sure. It wont be long before you always download the app for a city before you visit, have your attraction ticket prebooked and viewable on your phone, tour guides, maps, vouchers translations, watch this space!…

  3. i think there pretty much is an app for everything now and it is making information for travellers so much easier to access, who knows where it will go next!
