    A must visit aspect of Shanghai. I had a few hours in Shanghai before heading off to the airport and walked down to the Bund. Be prepared for crowds however the sight of the towers across the river really is one to behold. There are restaurants and pubs down there as well.

    Such a beautiful place to visit! Even more spectacular at night time with all the lights and the shopping options. We went in the Winter and practically completely forgot about the cold because everything was so beautiful.

    Our kids came to visit and since it was raining outside, we decided to visit this museum. It was recently renovated (two-month project). Although I can speak Mandarin proficiently now, we received very good service in both English and Mandarin, throughout the museum. It is free to visit; however, we wanted to rent audio equipment, plus VR glasses. It was a phenomenal experience. Everything is automatic. Did not have to lift a finger to operate the devices. It cost about $16 CDN to rent both audio and VR. Your deposit is credited upon return of the systems.

    The museum is beautifully set up, and well, it was a good day spent. We gave ourselves three hours. It was about right.

    Note that there are washrooms on every floor (four floors). This is especially helpful for young children, and the elderly. Oh, there's a rooftop garden where one can enjoy the city views.

    For lots of foreigners in Shanghai, this is the place to go. It still looks French and there is an international feel as there are restaurants from all over the place. So many restaurants. So much great food. It's a great place to walk and a great place to eat!

    I love how busy this street always is. It’s in central area in Shanghai, and perfect place for many occasions - solo shopping, friends hangout or dates. You get to see all walks of life here, and good places for street photography

    Visited this place on Christmas Eve. It was really jam-packed but good atmosphere though. This is a popular place for younger generation, with western food /restaurant options. I enjoyed the Christmas atmosphere in this area, with the Christmas decorations in the area, and stalls along the MaDang Road.

    A lot of things changed during COVID-19 Pandemic, but not the extraordinary service provided by Heping Fandian's team! Heping Hotel has been my favorite hotel in China since 2018. I met Zoey, their talented and excellent front desk operator who helped me a lot during my stay. China is changing rapidly since last I was there. Zoey was kind and informative. She made my visit in China much more easier. The room she gave me have impeccable street view. It always makes me want to extend my stay.

    All was excellent. Yet, I bought a package of postcards, but only 4 out of 25 turned out to be real postcards. The rest were just photo prints. Check items carefully before purchasing.

    Take your Shanghai pictures memories here, the world famous views of pudong can be take. Here. Plenty of good spots to admire the shanghai skyline, take the rivers cruises and walking distance from many touristy places like the bund, Nanjing street and upscale restaurants. It’s a must while you visit Shangai and never regret.

    I have been to many European and Asian cities but for architecture, Shanghai is the best. Singapore second. Paris third. (My opinion). Not related to architecture which is focus of this review, but street food and restored palace/old city were real bonuses.

    I enjoyed doing some last-minute souvenir shopping in Tianzifang. It's a nice little area with all the usual Chinese souvenirs on offer (tea, silk, jade, pottery, etc). Worth popping by. Go early, it'll be quieter.

    Surprisingly this temple is nice, a good size and historical. Just walking distance from the Changshou metro station line 7. There’s a variety of statues of gods and goddesses to be admired snd prayed (if you are a Buddhist). There are 2 Jade buddhas, one reclining and one sitting upright. Both in different parts of the temple. The reclining buddha is in white jade and the sitting buddha is in green jade. Sitting buddha sits in an airconditioned room where no photography is allowed. Pretty cool visit!

    Buddhist temples in China are like cathedrals in Europe - the first one is exciting, the second one is interesting, and after that they all look the same. Jing'an is definitely worth a visit if you have not been to many temples. The architecture is beautiful, it is an active temple, and the location is very convenient being directly above a metro station named after it.
