From Suzhou to Shanghai, that’s a 30 min train ride – but a completely different world. As Suzhou is more an old fashioned smaller city with a lot of back-to-the-roots stores, Shanghai is the city of modern China.
Driven by many financial companys, supported by the Chinese governmant and pushed by a lot of foreign investment – as well as foreign citizens, Shanghai has developed to a very modern and super large city within the last few decades.
Skyscrapers, traffic jams, stores for everything you need, bars, subways, restaurants – and a very fast moving heartbeat.
Inside some Skyscrapers you’ll find really awesome views – like here the Jinmao tower 88th floor.
Some of the attractions you need to see in Shanghai is the Yu-Garden, a formerly private owned city garden, but now open for everybody.
Also the area around the Yu-Garden, central downtown is nice to walk around although there are too much tourist for my point of view…
Very famous bridge to block ghosts and keep them outside the house, as ghosts can also walk straight…
Walking through Shanghai, you really find some interesting places offside from the mainstreets
Back in the financial district, the tall buildings really look amazing, but boring compared to night.
In the next post you’ll find Shanghai at night and probably our last blog entry for the China tour as this tour ended with travelling back to Beijing and flight from there.
