We were up bright and early to take on another full day in Shanghai.
Our first stop was to Fuxing Park. It was full of people dancing, flying kites, doing tai chi and these cool Chinese characters written with water on the ground.
Our next stop was Tianzifang, and our goal was to not get lost in the alleys upon alleys of shops.
After a break for some Hunan cuisine in the French Concession, we were off to the Jade Buddha Temple. An absolutely beautiful place, just maybe not the best place to take Everett. Just ask Marcus…
After piling back into the van, we were off through a channel tunnel to visit the Pudong side of Shanghai. It is home to three of the world’s largest buildings – all built right next to each other. We took a quick ride up to the top and enjoyed the views for awhile.
This day also happened to be my birthday, so for dinner that evening we popped over to the Waldorf Astoria for drinks at the bar, followed by food at Grand Brasserie.
The following morning we hung out at the hotel for a bit and then headed to the train station for our return trip home. Everett’s favorite item purchased on the trip were these garbage bins, complete with sorting cards.
And another check-in with grandma and Fitzie back in Beijing: this little guy loved going to the market!
