Hello Shanghai ^_^


Shanghai, what a metro pool!

After a few days in lovely Beijing we went to Shanghai with a bullet train. It took about 5 hours to get there. A long the way you can enjoy the amazing landscape, but the most thing that you will get to see are lots of constructions, building new apartments(high flats)/village/complex. You can buy tickets at the train station but it’s better to book it online. They have different classes/train types, so make sure to choose the one you prefer .

Shanghai the largest Chinese city by population of more than 24 million. So you can already guess, this city will never bore you. It offers so many exciting sightseeing, there is always something to see and do. Numerous lovely parks and gardens, and many fine old temples and traditional pagodas.

These are our favorite atractions:

Shanghai’s Promenade :The Bund

Also called the Zhongshan Dong Yi Lu (East Zhongshan 1st Road), the broad promenade is regarded as the symbol of Shanghai. At the west side of the Bund you have this famous and beautiful sight. You have to visit in day light and especially at nights. The amazing lamps and colors is just wow!  A good place to stroll and see the 52 unique high buildings.

Yuyuan Garden

The famous classical chinese garden, also known as the Garden of Happiness. The Garden is located in Anren Jie. A government officer named Pan Yunduan in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) finished this beautiful garden in 1577. It occupies an area of 20,000 square metres. We really enjoyed this Garden because of the typical Chinese architecture and the little souvenir shops and restaurants everywhere you go.
