"Paris of the Far East"

Two weeks seemed too short for a vacation in Shanghai, a city full of news and olds, excitements and history. As a local "Shanghainese", I found some tourist spots that attract me as well as visitors from all over the world, such as Xin-tian-di, and Tian-zi-fang.

These old stone buildings in Xin-tian-di were all renovated with modern interior and became bars, restaurants, art galleries and boutiques.

Tian-zi-fang is also an area full of "Shikumen" stone buildings that embodies the history of Shanghai. It was quite interesting to see various cultures and styles in just few blocks.

Last but not least, Shanghai's well known night scenes... I took this picture in a taxi. A few years ago I used to pass by it everyday after work. Oh well, sometimes New York City reminds me of it (but still not quite the same).
