The last time I went to Shanghai, I was in the 6th grade.
I decided to spend Thanksgiving with the family since it would be my last “long term” vacation for a while. It came down to either Vegas (which we always go to) or Vancouver (which my parents used to go to a lot when they were younger). I forget how Shanghai came up as a suggestion, but once mentioned, we realized we had a couple of things we needed to take care of there anyway. It was only $500 for a round-trip flight, which was absolutely amazing!!
Four days was way too short but I did lots! I thought it would be best to just write short blurbs about each picture since I have so many.
Me + Xan, sitting through 13 hours.
The hotel room was bigger than hotel rooms in NYC, hah.
BREAKFAST IN THE ALLEYS
$2 for a meal for 4 is honestly the best. Fried goodness.
CHINESE VENDING MACHINES
Pokemon in the vending machines in the subway stations!!
It was a such a struggle to order.
Where my mom grew up :”)
The most iconic place in Shanghai.
EXPLORING COFFEE SHOPS
American coffee is still better.
FARM FRESH FOOD
Honestly, this place makes it onto my top 5 fav restaurants ever.
Asian people are so creative.
If only they blocked off huge blocks of land to dedicate to the arts in the US. ):
