The Bund 外滩, Shanghai China

The Bund 外滩, Shanghai China

Hi all, I'm back! sorry for missing in action of updating my blog for a week. I went to Xiamen and Shanghai China last week, and thought i could update my blog when i was in China. But I was so frustrated when i got to know that there was no way to access Blogger and Facebook in China as their government has banned on these.

My husband's counterpart brought us to this famous "The Bund" on our 1st day of arrival...

This is a place that you must visit when you are in Shanghai, very similar to Victoria Harbour Hong Kong. The beautiful old European architecture in Bund makes it really cool to see, also the contrast with new Pudong on the other side of the river (old & new divided by the busy river) is just awesome!

Lovely photos! My husband was in Su Zhou and Shanghai last week, he told me that he couldn't access FB and blogger too. If you have a personal VPN you can access them via IPad.

Welcome back! It is nice to know you had a great time in Shanghai. Mine was a bad experience.It was the most expensive trip for me. When I was at the Bund I lost my necklace and pendant which was one of my wedding anniversary gift. Got to be very careful when you are there. The pickpocket there are very professional.
