We had a great afternoon. Went to see the Old Town of Shanghai for some time, just walking around. The combination of ancient and brand new is just terrific. Took some pics:
This is the old Tea House in Shanghai; pretty crowded place around it, but absolutely worth visiting.
Later the afternoon, following a friend’s recommendation, we went over to the Captain’s Bar to enjoy the beautiful view across the river:

Thought I recognised that building 🙂 Looks like the weather is with you – enjoy both of you, Shanghai is a very interesting city beautiful in its own right with a quite unique skyline. Have they finished building on the “new side” of the river?
It’s almost finished (outside yes, interior not). And yes, indeed a very interesting city with beautiful spots.
… and, did you go with the fast train from the airport? I seem to remember something like 340 km/h…
No, we took a cab. But we’ll have a long ride in the fast train from Shanghai to Yichang on Monday – will let you know about max speed 😉
I hope you will have a wonderfull time and I look forward to see some nice pictures every day.
