Day 2

‘Twas early in that magical morning in autumn at the streets of Shanghai. There was a slight breeze, much to my delight! The air was fresh and my breath could be seen. Since we didn’t have scheduled tour that early morning, we decided to walk at the streets of Shanghai and hit to the malls since our Hotel was just a few blocks away!

 Sometimes it’s fun to keep it monochrome!

I’ve been wearing a lot of black and gray recently. I think you can create really classic looks with black, white and gray outfits and have your statement accessories stand out even more, like a fab necklace or a colorful bag but what I have here is my white bag and a brown leather jacket which I bought in one of the stores in my hometown and it was very ‘cheap’. Black and gray doesn’t have to be boring 🙂 Just pick the perfect accessories to make the look more fun!

Shanghai, China Part 1

We arrived at Pudong International Airport in Shanghai around 12 midnight. Shanghai weather is generally mild and moist, with four distinct seasons – a pleasant warm spring, a hot rainy summer, a cool autumn and an overcast cold winter. All of us were really excited because it’ll not be a winter season (Last time we visited Beijing it was a cold winter season) in China but a comfortable cool autumn!

Good Morning, Shangai! So, this was my outfit for the cold weather. Make sure to bring a few sweaters, warm socks, and a coat suitable for autumn conditions. You can wear many layers if you are not used to cold seasons like this. I was really shaking on our first morning in Shanghai because the temperature lowered down to 13 Degree Celsius.

Day 1
Our first stop was in Old Shanghai Town. The town is known as Yuyuan. Centered between Renmin Road and Zhongshan Road, it is located southeast of the city centre.

In the Old Town is known as the bright pearl of Shanghai is a perfect combination of gardens, temples, old architecture, civil culture, business, souvenirs, and food.

All you get here is souvenirs, sometimes overpriced food etc. But still, when you do a walking tour around the place, it is an enjoyable place to go. They say you shouldn’t leave the place without trying the dumplings, not on my top ten of foodie likes so I wasn’t able to buy. Haha.

This is one of the must-do tourist stops. The district is full of authentic Chinese merchandise and the ambiance is what you would expect in old world China

We walked around the streets for a bit and then walked across the Zigzag Bridge. So you’re probably asking, “Why does the bridge need zigzags?”. The Chinese are very superstitious and they believe evil spirits can’t turn corners. The bridges zigzags are meant to trap them. Nowadays, people walk along the bridge because they know this superstition is not true and I’m one of ’em. lol.

This bridge is named as Nine curve bridge (aka Zigzag bridge)

This is not my photo but I just took it to let you see how beautiful this bridge is.
