Last week I went to Shanghai for the second time. My first time was in last year. This time, traveling without a plan gave me incredible flexibility. I went to discover something nice in Jing An Temple area and Wu Kang Road; coffee cafes in little alley, restaurants, department stores, community malls, everything was absolutely awesome!
Talk about this trip, I would say do not underestimate winter weather in Shanghai; windy, rainy and humid. To be honest, it was such a damn cold trip for me!
Talk about the city, I have no wonder why everyone loves Shanghai. For me, I love their heritage historic buildings such as neoclassical architecture, Russo-Chinese, classic French…etc. There’s nothing quite like we’re watching the history in nineteenth century. I absolutely love this city!
Back to travelling without a plan, there are so many things to be learned from this trip. I try new things, travel is exciting. Before I came to Shanghai, I made an outline but however I changed my plan after I met my sister (from different parent lol) and her Thai friends. I really want to say “Thank you” to P’Pae, P’Mange and P’Kit for taking me to find great places and made me feel like I experienced a place like a local.
After travelling, I learned a lot of new things. I started to realise those unexpected and unplanned things or situations that add spice to my trip and turn into the best parts of my journey later.
Ps I. You know there’s sooooooooo many Thai restaurants in Shanghai.
Ps II. If you want to eat 麻辣烫, Please leave your designer handbags at home. Trust me!
