Shanghai is an interesting place, once holding the title “Paris of the East” and being famed for it’s architecture. There’s more to Shanghai these days than the fast paced lifestyle, stuffed trains and endless hawkers. Definitely a lot more than the high rise buildings and neon signs.
In the Bund, the alleyway type streets have a character of their own, entirely different from the rest of China, and the rest of Shanghai for that matter. Something serene and calm, even during rush hour.
