Over the Christmas holidays, I made a second trip to Hangzhou to celebrate New Year’s Eve at my friend’s restaurant (I’ll share some pics from his beautiful restaurant in a follow-up post about the second Hangzhou trip). While in Hangzhou, I took the high-speed Fuxing train to Shanghai that takes about 1.5 hours. China’s infrastructure is just simply amazing. Every major city is connected by high-speed train and even many tier 2 and tier 3 cities are connected as well.
While the trip to Shanghai was only a day trip, we still managed to get a few images in of the epic Pudong skyline from the Puxi side along the Bund of Shanghai’s downtown. You may wonder where all the people are; well, it was -30C with an intense wind so local people, who are clearly much more clever than us, stayed indoors. Needless to say, we had to take turns putting hands in our pockets to prevent them from freezing and falling off. Anyway, here are the images from that short day.
