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.

… 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.

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….
