I'm just trying to organize a flight to NZ around Xmas time and there is the option of a free stopover in Shanghai - but the only seats left mean it will have to be a minimum stay of 7 days.
I'm just wondering if it's worth taking the longer option, given I'm likely to bankrupt myself with the flight to NZ as it is, without factoring a week of accomodation, Chinese visas, extra week off work etc. into the mix. On the other hand, I'm not likely to be back there for a while.
So, is there anyone here who can offer any advice?
