Outlets in Shanghai
I have been there just once and I think it is a good place to buy genuine products with reasonable price . If you have nothing to do during the weekends, that is a good choice you can spend whole day there. It is divided into 3 parts:
A.Top brands , like PRADA, FENDI, CHANNEL. BUBERRY , DIOR ,ARMANI (A102),GIVENCHY (A125), DUNHILL (A103), HUGO BOSS(A109)
B.Unique middle price brand and sports brand and some national brands, like The North Face(B149),COLUMBIA(B115),LAFUMA(B157)
C.Restaurants and fast foods, like KFC(C213),BE FOR TIMES(B180)
Service here is getting atrocious! We were having lunch here and had to wait for 40 minutes for our food. The shift manager, a girl, was not the least apologetic and said that this was normal. I have been going there on and off for the last 11 years. This would be my very last time!
White Jade Buddhas
The Jade Buddha temple stands in the place of an old temple built in 1882, to keep two jade Buddha statues which had been brought from Burma by a monk named Huigen.
This original temple was destroyed during the revolution that ended the Dynasty and the new one that replaced it was called by the people The Jade Buddha Temple.
There are not one but two Buddhas and they are are carved in two blocks of white jade.
The sitting Buddha (190 cm tall) is a meditating oneand the recumbent one (96 cm long) is in the so-called "lucky repose" position (see pic).
The temple keeps as well other statues of heroes and warriors and more than 7,000 Dazang sutras which are unique relics of the Buddhist religion.
