Shanghai — Part 1

On our fourth day in Shanghai our guide Mao “Jim” Chen finally gave us a little free time on Shanghai’s busiest shopping district — Nanking Road near The Bund.

It’s a very dynamic area with a lot of hustle and bustle.  Fortunately Nanking Road West is blocked off to traffic, making it one huge shopping mall.

Shopping is not the only draw to this area however.  Approaching the Huangpu River puts you in The Bund.

In The Bund you’ll also find a statue dedicated to the first mayor of Shanghai — General Chen Yi.

The Bund also gives you a fantastic across-the-river view of the Pudong area.
