... we went up 88 floors in the Jinmao tower. It is still shorter then a new tower being built. Then we finished our day at the Yuyuan Gardens. A peaceful ( despite the crowds) oasis amidst the frenzy that is Shanghai...but with red light cameras everywhere, the traffic obeys the traffic signals much more than the rest of China. We came back to the hotel to relax before the acrobat show tonight. A freebie as I booked this trip before Decdmber ...

Thursday morning was a struggle, after our crazy night in Perrys bar, getting up for Chinese lessons at 7:45 was a killer!

I was hoping to learn more about the European influence in Shanghai if the museum had been about history and not art! While we were in Shanghai we went to see a Beijing opera. We'd tried to go in Beijing but it wasn't opera season so we had to wait! We didn't ...

Diaoyu Dao

A travel blog entry by nickbeaumont on Sep 21, 2012

I'm not sure how big a deal it is in the UK, but here the Diaoyu Dao scandal is pretty massive. There have been huge protests in Shanghai this week, particularly in The Bund and outside the Japanese embassy, with plenty looting, violence, and down right racism.


China has never been a country that has got on well with foreigners. The last 400 years of dynastic rule has seen Emperors actively fight against 'foreign ...
