I'll be in Shanghai on 12/3 - 12/5. Any recommendations for reasonable rate hotel (clean with Internet access) close to Airport and attractions to see for 2 nights, 2 days? Does the hotel provide transporation from and to the Shanhai-Pu Dong Airport? What is the current exchange rate for U.S. dollar and can I get the Chinese currency at the Airport? Do the shops accept American Express or Master Card? Thank you.

You can check related website to get to know the exchange rate for U.S. dollar.
Currency exchange service is available at both Hongqiao and Pudong Airport, but a bit higher. I suggest you exchange your currency before leaving for China. Also Union Pay is used univerally in China. Master Card is acceptable but it won't be economical.

Hi, actually there are two baches near the city. One is Jin Shan city beach in Jin Shan district. its ticket costs 50 RMB/person (at night weekend) and 30 RMB (at rest time). the other is Bi Hai Jin Sha beach in Feng Xian district. its ticket cost always 50.
I have ever been to the beach in Jin Shan, here is bus info if you wish to get there:
1: take subway line 1, get off at lotus(in Chinese, Lian Hua) station
2: go to a crowded bus station which is at the left side of lotus station's north exit, about 100 meters away.get on a bus with title "莲卫线" and you can sleep now.
3: about 1 hour later, you can get off at the terminal stop. Take a taxi to the beach and enjoy!
