Sightseeing Shanghai

Shangahi Panorama

We started the day with breakfast at a local sandwich place, and then took a taxi to The Bund – Shanghai’s Champs-Elysées. This was somehow a disappointment, because the whole area was under renovation for the upcoming Expo, but still the colonial buildings were nice and we managed to get some views to the new business area Pudong.

We tried to to follow Lonely planet’s walk in the old town, but after too many markets we took some shortcuts and spent some relaxing time in some of the parks in the area instead.

One of the more exiting shortcuts was our walk through some of the old town alleys where all activities like haircuts, cooking and bicycle repairs happened in the street.
