Our China Trip: Chapter 5 – Shanghai

September 27, 2016


We were thrilled to travel next to Shanghai – a city where none of us had ever been.  What an exciting place!  It provided a combination of old an new.  Whereas in other parts of China, we saw much relating to the dynasties dating back thousands of years, in Shanghai the most fascinating points of interest concerned the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century, prior to communist rule.

Of course, when most people think of Shanghai, they think of the gleaming modern 21st century city. And much has been made of how recent most of the development has been, as shown here.  It did not disappoint, as it is one of the most cosmopolitan cities I have ever been to!

UPDATE:  Our video from Shanghai is now posted:

You can find our pictures of Shanghai here.   Up next – Hong Kong.  Here is a preview, with highlights from both Shanghai and Hong Kong:
