SHANGHAI 上海

Shanghai is one of those cities. It is beautiful in so many different ways that everyone who visits falls in love with a little part of it. As one of the quickest growing cities in Asia, the city is youthful and lively, not to mention fashion-forward. The city flaunts its concrete jungle and neon lights, showing off how modernized and globalized it is. At the same time, the skyscrapers stand side by side with the old-school brick buildings left from the 90’s. History has not been left behind.

Walking about in the streets of Shanghai, I want to describe this city as proud. It bares itself with a level of righteous dignity and elegance, just like its people.

Our first stop was Nanjing Street Walkway.

We then took the Bund Tourist Tunnel across to the bank of Oriental Pearl Tower, but decided not to go up. Instead, we strolled along the skywalks in the Lujiazui Financial District.

We walked along the Bund back and forth way too many times for the short two days we were in Shanghai. But no regrets because each time was new, and different, and breathtaking.
