1999, I ran away from my hometown Anshan, China, to seek a new life in Shanghai. You can read the reason and what my life was in Shanghai here “About Me”. I lived in Shanghai for 9 years. From an almost homeless person to a successful business owner, Shanghai was the place that I have grown into an independent women. I also met my late husband in Shanghai, so it is really a very special place for me.
This early February, I flight back to Shanghai to visit my friends. If you have been following me on my Instagram stories, you probably have already seen a lot of fun time I had. At least all the amazing food that I had. 😉
I have received a lot of question and comments about my Shanghai trip so below is some info about this city. Later I will show you a few my personally favorite places.
In the past ten years, Shanghai has proven to be a shining example of the effect of rapidly fast, economic growth. The skyline alone is a testimony of Shanghai’s vast and sprawling development, and overall financial success. Shanghai translates to above or on sea, and began as a settlement sometime between the fifth and seventh century. Over time, Shanghai has become an international business and trading central. It has grown so rapidly that by 2010 its population number was ranked as the highest in China, as well as in the entire world. It’s only natural that a city like Shanghai, a city that has become one of the leaders of the economic driving powers of the East, would attract more than just business travelers but many vacation and leisure travelers as well. Whatever your reasons for your visit to Shanghai may be, whether an extended business trip or a holiday, you’ll find more than just the monuments of a modern world.
Shanghai is a modern city just as much as it is an ancient civilization, and there are many things to do. Today I am going to show you my personal top one place, Riverside Promenade – Bingjiang Da Dao
Pudong Binjiang Avenue stretches about 2500 meters, integrating tourism and environmental protection. It lies across a river from the Bund in Puxi. Fresh wind blows from the river plied by pleasure-boats, creating a unique charm.There are many restaurants and cafes along the river. After a tiring walk, you can order a cup of coffee there, and then enjoy a relaxing afternoon while admiring the riverside scenery. Of course, you can also lean on the railings, watch the fast-flowing traffic on the Huangpu River and take some photos.
If you have more time, I will suggest you come in later afternoon, so you can talk a walk and later see the stunning night view. From this side you can see the best view of the Band of Shanghai, which I will cover in next “See the World” post. Below you can see the breathtaking images that I captured during this trip.
