Travel to Shanghai

Last updated by geraldlee at 2013/12/26; Destinations: Shanghai

My trip in Shanghai strats from register in Park Hotel Shanghai, a hotel located nearby People Square. There are three subway lines pass through the People Square, as well as line 2 is directly connect with Hongqiao airport.  All of these makes everything seems convenient.

Day 1. Madame Tussaud's-Nanjing Road-the Bund
It seems the Madame Tussaud's is only a few steps far from our hotel.It was a pleasant and interesting trips that I saw so many vivid statues that make myself can’t help taking pictures with them. Although it cost me more than 100 Yuan, it is worthwhile anyway.

Walking along Nanjing Road brought me to the famous night view site-the Bund, also called Waitan in Chinese. It is an enjoyable thing to walk around and take some great pictures with that famous landscape on both sides of the river. Both front look and back are beautiful to take some pictures. I think this is the charm of Waitan.
Day2 Jingan Temple- Qibao Ancient Town
This active Buddhist temple was a great visit for me because it left me a good impression by the beauty of the temple. The temple is surrounded by towering buildings and billboards. I couldn't help taking photos of the views in my sight, especially against the very blue skies. It is good to have a calm moment and away stay out of the rush of the city. Actually, the first look of Jingan Temple completely changes my tradition concept on temple. There are so many tasty food at the B1th floor. I brought some and went to Jingan Park, which is a nice place in front of Jingan temple.

In the afternoon, I went to the Qibao ancient town. Qibao ancient town is not a big but authentic water town. It is the closest one ancient town from Shanghai center, roughly two square kilometers far from. There are two canals with many traditional houses, shops and street food dealers. The price of the local snack food is Okay, as far as I am concerned. This place attracts many visitors especially at the weekends. There are my interesting stuff and tasty snacks but it was very crowdy. Believe it or not, see my pictures below.

Day 3.    Shanghai Xin Tian Di- the oriental pearl TV tower
AS a shopaholic, I really love Xin tiandi! There are lots of shops, so little time! In addition, there are a lot of outdoor restaurants which makes me feel difficult to choose one. Xin tiandi is in the high rent district and prices on food follows accordingly. This place is pedestrian only, besides the restaurant and the bars there are both ancient and modern buildings. Anyway, it is a good place to come at night for tasty local snacks, drinks and music.
