Shanghai Diaries Part 2

A quick post about the remainder of my stay in Shanghai. I had a lovely time visiting my sister and meeting new family friends. Our stay coincided with the National Golden Week in China, a week-long holiday that begins on October 1. In other words, the tourist attractions would get even more touristy with a suffocating amount of people, but luckily we managed to hit up most of the places before the national holiday. And then the rest of the days consisted of living and eating locally. Massage at Dragonfly, check. Tea and oysters at Morton's, check. Shopping, check, although I'm barely a fan of shopping but I would make ONE exception for Uniqlo. Wonton soup at the corner place, check. Yang's Dumplings, check. Lastly, Shanghai is a vertical city with tons of rooftop bars and patios, I highly recommend Vue Bar because the view is spectacular!
