bushbaby has indicated that this thread is about China

Hi all. I'm gona travel to Chinal and my first stop is Shanghai for 3-4 days. This is my first time to China, and for that matter first serious overseas trip by myself so I'm a bit lost. My first question is where is a good clean place (and also easy on budget) to stay and still fairly handy to all the touristy spots, which are from what I can gather- Nanjing Road, Yu Garden, the Bund etc.

My 2nd question is, what are people's experiences with travelling from Shanghai to Beijing? I'm thinking of taking an overnight train as cost and time saving measure. I'm thinking of getting a soft sleeper and from the information I can find can be separated into a 2 or 4 bunks compartment. For those who have tried it, is overnight train on this route a fairly comfortable ride, and is it worth paying the extra to stay in a 2 bunk compartment?

Thanks for any suggestions.
