Xiang Yang Road Market
Xiang Yang Road Market ? This area contains a lot of small shops which carry the same merchandise that you can buy at home for a lot less money as these merchandize are being manufactured in China. Be sure to bargain, and bargain hard. If you give the merchant a final offer and start to walk away, and the merchant do not call you back, you know your offer is too low.
Great Indian food in Shanghai
This restaurant is so posh! It's quite an experience, with the beautifully intricate decor and sofly lit space. I loved everything I had at this restaurant. I had samosas, malai kofta, and chai. Everything was splendid. The menu prices were a little high, but it was well worth it for the excellent food and unique dining experience.
OVERLOOK THE MOST POWERFUL IMAGES OF CHINA
For over a mile, the Bund stretches alongside the banks of the Huangpu River. A multitude of elderly buildings face the water, where foreign banks and trading houses from countries all across the globe went about their business in the mid 1900s. Once a British settlement, the Shanghai Bund trails off to the north of the old city walls. It is one of the most famous, and significant, landmarks in all of China.
Though the Bund technically refers to an entire section of Shanghai, it's the riverfront promenade section of Zhongshan Road from which the region derives its fame. Especially at night, when the stately buildings are lit like a subdued Vegas overlooking 10 lanes of traffic speeding to and from the heart of Shanghai, the Bund is one of the most powerful images of modern China.
To stumble down the street with your neck craned upward is a must for any tourists, but for visitors who want to get a slightly different taste of the Shanghai Bund, you can rent take a boat trip down the Huangpu, all the way to the mouth of the Yangtze. The entire tour can last upwards of three hours, and boats leave regularly from the Shiliupu Pier, just south of the Bund Shanghai.
My eye to Shanghai
"Brief of Shanghai"
Shanghai, which literally means the "City on the Sea", locates in the alluvial plain of Yangtze River, renowned for the river named Shanghaipu, the anabranch of Wusong River. Shanghai at the present day is a modernized but traditional metropolis featured in Shanghai-style Culture. It boasts Oriental Paris. Featured by modernization and westernization, Shanghai has a large number of western buildings and modern high-rise buildings, for instance, the Bund, Shanghai World Financial Center. Shanghai is not only China's most important business and commercial center, but also the world-famous megacity.
"Nightview of the Bund"
To my mind, Shanghai boasts its modern charm at night. The riverside high-rise buildings under the neon light form the fascinating image of Shanghai evening.
