Continuation on my trip to Shanghai. I was there for a business trip and I managed to stay over the weekend and to go around some interesting places.
Saw this vending machine in one of the Shanghai Metro station; selling which I believe food vouchers. Catching a metro in Shanghai is easy once you get the hang of it.
Heading to Shanghai Old Street….but it looks like no old street with the high rise apartments in the background.
Vendor selling all sorts of Chinese calligraphy brushes and souvenirs.
… moving along, I was heading to Shanghai Old City. This is an interesting place as it was literally packed with tourist but is rather touristy area but undeniably picturesque with old buildings that caught my eyes.
Connected to the Old City, is the Yuyuan Garden (Happy Garden) which was believed to be built in the Ming Dynasty, around 400 years ago.
A pond filled with Japanese Carp…
Yuyuan Garden which was just next to the Shanghai Old city.
This post is on my trip to Shanghai, China back in 2009. Follow me on this and enjoy the photos.
Landed in Shanghai Pudong International Airport early in the morning on a weekday and when I headed to the city.. I was met with a long jam. Guess that kinda normal in any big city and with a population of 23mil people.
First sight was the halves sphere as I approach the city….
mmm.. some kind of sculpture in the middle of the street.
