I decided to do a little touristy sight seeing yesterday - but apparently they're doing renovations around the Bund area (shanghai's infamous riverside promenade with swanky restaurants and the best view of the skyline). Thus the only view of the skyline that I managed to get were from a little bridge on one end of the river. It was an extremely hot day so i thought it fitting to wear a light flouncy dress - I got it ages ago but who was going to wear this dress in the middle of winter?

Also, we went to Nanjing Lu which is like the times square of Shanghai - lots of lights and fancy shops and ridiculous amounts of people. I managed to snap some quick shots of the street:




And ofcourse, your daily food shot - these are a shanghai speciality - i guess you can call them "watery dumplings" they're basically dumplings with savory soup-like liquid inside - sounds gross, but tastes divine.

  6. Thanks for posting these Shanghai pics! I've never been, but I've been wanting to go for ages. It reminds me a bit of Hong Kong (where I grew up), but I can imagine it's a bit crazier :)
