... to target, grumbling a little as we searched out alternatives to the same Chinese dishes we had been enjoying during our tour and really just taking in the daily life in the city. One of our favorite spots that we ended up walking along a few times was the Bund waterfront area. The beautiful skyline across the river with its iconic spire and huge skyscrapers rivaled the ones that we saw in Singapore and Hong Kong, especially when it was brilliantly lit up at ...
The Maglev (derived from magnetic levitation) was the first experience we had of using magnets, not wheels, as a method of transportation to take us into the heart of Shanghai from the airport. The train was very smooth, especially given how fast we were travelling (i.e. 310kmh). A journey which would have typically taken an hour on the subway was complete in just 7 minutes.

Skye rushes off to get something, oh dear, almost identical gifts: silk tie (hideous) for John, silk scarf (close to hideous) for me, clearly from the same school gift pile that Pat used. Linda writes out the taxi instructions for the SIP train station for us and takes us to the gate where the taxi is already waiting. We'd left our bags in the guard house, which we collect, and off to the train station - a fair ...
