Shanghai: A Picture Diary

上海

Warning: Image heavy.

I finally have the time to post photos from my Shanghai trip back in late January early February. As this post is already long enough with images alone, I will keep this post more of a picture diary. I was there for 7 days, well 6 as I had spent one day in Suzhou which will be in another post. As I’m typing this up right now, I already miss Shanghai and have already thought about moving there at some point. Not sure when but one day!

I will list the places featured in this post at the end to make things a bit easier to read and more organised.
