1、Full use of the local public transport
As you know, when you are travel, a lot of money will be spend on the transportation. so i suggest you`d better full use of the local public transport，maybe take a bus is very difficult especially first traveling to shanghai, but metro is a good choice. There are 11 metro lines in shanghai, you can go nearly wherever you want, and taking metro can spare the bother of traffic jam.
2、sleep in youth hostels as much as possible
There are a few of youth hostels in Shanghai, and the environment is clean and comfort, you can meet who are also love travel when live in the youth hostels, perhaps you can travel together to make your tour to shanghai more interesting.
3、shopping in clothing wholesales
It's well known that China is a powerful garment manufacture and export country, it's absolutely a good way to save money buying clothes in the big shanghai wholesale market, and the shanghai qipu road wholesale markets is the place you must go to, you just need to pay 1/5 price of normal to get the same clothes, think it over, isn’t exciting?
4、use travel app，say good-bye to high-price travel agency
If you are a iphone user, I think you can buy some use travel app on the app store.It can not only save the time in searching information on the internet, but also easy to schlep.I've ever use one called "xTown Shanghai" which is very practical, it contain not only the require airways, banks and traffic information, but also the tour information for eat, live and play in Shanghai, and the xclipper therein to make me surprised, I use it every time I go on errands to shanghai.
The above is my personal experience, hope it will help you to spend a saving and cheerful holiday in shanghai.
