Customer Travel Tip: Try to avoid touristy attractions. Go off the beaten track.

Customer Travel Tip: Visit the cemeteries.

Liked: Good place to do a visa run/get a Chinese visa. Very international, anyone can blend in. Cool buildings.

Disliked: Subway signs can be confusing. If you are on the train from Luohu trying to get to Central you must change at the Green/Red lines instead of TST or you will have to give up your ticket to change lines. Really expensive compared to China...or anywhere, really.
