HEAVY SHOWERS are predicted for tomorrow Robbie!!! Wouldn't be any fun to do this in the rain.
We're headed out to the Flea Market. Hope it will stay dry for us.
What's the name of the restaurant, Montana88?
Hi Puertea, the place Montana is referring to is called Chocolate's Bar. I suggest ordering the first steak on the menu for thickness and juiciness. The place is usually full of foreigners ( a lot of Germans). The manager is named Claus. It's next to the Ramada Hotel. Phone number is 15861881271.
Thanks for the tips, Ethan. Maybe I will go at the weekend.
Who has had experience with the Pudong Shuttle? Our school is going to have us catch our flights back home and I want to know if they are reliable.
Professor L just gave me a ring and asked about the possibility of doing some part time teaching this summer.I'm going home for the summer but someone else may be interested. The contact name is Lynn and her phone number is: 051968860977. Hopefully she will register so she can interact herself, unlike our Travel Agent guy who left so many questions unanswered.ProfL said Lynn was cagey about giving salary details. But it is an English Corner Tuesday through Saturday 2 hours each. Location unknown.
XinbeiCIT I have used the shuttle and can vouch for their reliability.The gals they have answering the phones have poor english, but if you are patient you can get yourreservation in order.
Yeh, what a shame the Travel Agent interviewed never signed in, or even had anyone from his company connect with us. They would have cleaned up given the time of year it is.
Since I brought my business here, it seems that the concept of seeing a business opportunity in unique places is a strategy not well developed here. Like the travel agent referred to here. This could be a great platform for creating business they didn't utilize.
Awhile ago our company had Professor L come in and teach a Sales Strategy seminar that increased our revenues by 15% in 6 months.
New businesses coming here should be aware of this – although the environment for creating a place to start businesses is satisfactory in CZ, maintaining a place for consistent growth could use some improvement.
Morning W, this is a common topic for conversation in the Foreign business community.
Basically you are speaking the the lack of creativity and innovation in your Sales staff. I'm totally convinced that these are skills that have to be taught, especially in the mid-sized businesses. Larger companies have them built into their established protocols .
It is something that needs constant attention.
Morning, my friends. I called the travel agency again and they promised to answer your questions today.
Hi Atlanta, do you know the TRUE time it takes to get to Pudong from Trader Fudu Hotel on the shuttle? Leaving at 6:30a.
YES. Leaving at 6:30 am and 10:30 am from Traders Fudu Hotel. Twice a day!
Nancy this is great information!
Atlanta could you copy and paste this information from Nancy into the Resource folder on the side of the page please.
Personally, I am planning to use that CZ-Pudong shuttle bus. And acutally this blog is the place that I found the information of the bus -_- I called them and it is said that if you take the 6am bus, you will be able to arrive at Pudong around 9:30 before 10am ,since the chance of a traffic in the early morning is quite slim. Normally, the transportation time from CZ to Pudong is around 3.5-4 hours. There is a new route improved in SH from the highway exit to the airport, the situation has been much better these days…And according to the latest news, the SH-BJ speed train will have its first run on June 30th. It offers two prices, for a speedy one, from CZ to BJ is about 500RMB (less than 5 hours) and the slower one is about 300+RMB
