9 AM: Check into the PuLi Hotel

If it's instant impressions that count, PuLi, located in Shanghai's new commercial district, adjacent to fashionable Nanjing Road, has the requisite X factor. Reached via a Chinese courtyard–style gate, the palatial lobby, with its 105-foot sunken bar backed by floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a water garden, is a hot spot for Shanghai's young shakermakers. A subtle blending of southeast Asian design motifs and traditional Chinese stylistic grandeur appears throughout the hotel, notably in your guest room, where elements like sliding latticed doors, dark wooden furniture, and stone statuettes are offset by high-tech amenities like an MP3 dock, flat-screen TVs in the bedroom and bathroom, and GSM portable phones. The treatments menu at the Thai-rooted Anantara Spa employs the recuperative powers of Chinese green tea, while up-and-coming New Zealand chef Dane Clouston offers a modern take on comfort cuisine at the signature Jing'An restaurant.
