If you want to visit any of the local tourist sights like Ancient Water Towns near Shanghai then the most convenient way to do that is to take one of many buses that depart almost hourly from the Shanghai Stadium.

It is very easy to find the stadium if you use subway; here is how you get there:

Use Subway Line 1 from People's Square, for example, and get off at "Shanghai Indoor Stadium" station: ... ba3e_b.jpg
