The beautiful Night Mode ShangHai
Jul 2020 • Friends
It will be the greatest regret if you didn't visit here during your trip to ShangHai. The view is superb and stunning. Was there during last winter yet still feel heart warming when sightseeing the beautiful ShangHai.

charming night of Shanghai in Waitan
Oct 2020
Shanghai Waitan is one of the most famous attractions that cannot be missed if you are visiting Shanghai.
Waitan is along the river and there is a ferry terminal where you can book a ticket in advance and enjoy the charming night of Shanghai with your friend and famiy.
However, if possible, I highly recommend you not to travel there during holidays since it can be considerably crowded.

A Nice River Walk
May 2021
This is a nice riverfront walk. On one side you have the old colonial buildings, and across the river the super modern skyscrapers of Pudong. The only drawback is all the people that crowd this place at all times, day and night. The best experience is an early morning run along the river, before the big tourist crowds get there.

Most buetiful front of Shanghai
Mar 2021 • Friends
A nice place to visit anytime of the day, but at night the magnificent facade reveles the sparkling building and pearl tower.

Many coffee shops, bars, and restaurants scatter the strip.

Also a walking distance to the underground tourist tunnel to take you to the other side.

Tulips along the Bund
Mar 2021
Was impressed with the many colors of tulips planted along the Bund. Was there last weekend and caught most of the flowers were in their upright blooming state.

A must see!
Mar 2021 • Couples
Shanghai’s iconic Bund is a must see. The pictures speak for itself! You can take cruise to get a better view. Best to visit at night.
