Transit: Shanghai

Next up in our Transit segment, we went to the vibrant megalopolis of Shanghai that houses a population of more than 24 million. The "Crown Jewel" of China, Shanghai is the symbol of the exhilarating growth that China experienced in the 21st Century.  

The ever-bustling Nanjing Rd Pedestrian Street

Ever-bustling Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street

Boasting an eclectic mix of the East and the West, the old and the new. We are able to see that manifested in the architecture of the city. One can spot traditional Chinese-style architecture amongst the European-style cityscapes, and buildings reminiscent of the old Manhattan dotted along the Bund.

Breakfast in Huanghe Road

Shanghai is one of the few places in the world where you can switch from sipping a Negroni in a fancy upscale bar to slurping hot beef noodles soup in a make-shift street stall in a blink of an eye.

A true traveller's Mecca in terms of culture, juxtaposition and decadence.
