Travel is a great way to have fun and learn.
(Geez, that’s not exactly the type of powerful, original, cutting-edge thinking regular readers have come to expect. If I can’t do better than that, I’ll have to rename this blog lame.com!)
Why not start your travels to foreign cities with Shanghai, the most populous city proper (not counting suburbs) in the world, with mo’ than 23 million residents. As you’ll quickly see, Shanghai has a lot more going for it than sheer numbers. Just click and enjoy my slideshow.
Shanghai is electric! (Obvious pun intended).
The first photos are of the Bund, a waterfront area in central Shanghai which runs along the western bank of the Huangpu River. To get an appreciation for the Bund at night, think Disney World meets Las Vegas.
The next photos are from Nanjing Road, the main shopping street of Shanghai and one of the world’s busiest shopping streets. For this, think Fifth Avenue in New York.
The next pictures are from the Yu Gardens (formally, Yuyuan Garden) area of Shanghai. Located in the center of the Old City of Shanghai, it is a can’t-miss stop for tourists.
Finally, there is a series of photos taken at the Shanghai Museum of Art and History, an amazing place that tracks 5,000 years of Chinese history.
