Greetings from Shanghai
This is my first time ever being in Shanghai. It’s so beautiful here! I took this picture in Shanghai’s Yu Yuan Garden. The serene landscape and architecture here is the type of image that my brain typically conjures up when I think of China.
Outside of this garden preserved for history and tourism, the city of Shanghai is actually rather different though. The city is very fast-paced and modern (it’s the largest city in China, by population), and the Shanghai Metro is one of the longest subway systems in the world.
These pockets of history and heritage within the busy city make Shanghai all the more charming.
My travel outfit. This bag has been an amazing convenience on this trip so far!
I’m a sucker for a good elbow patch (my sister’s influence, I think).
Comfy walking shoes when traveling are a must. Added bonus if they’re easy to match with most outfits. :P
The time difference here is +16hours. Time to rest and then explore more!
