I already know I need to go back to Shanghai for DIsneyland! Our stay in Shanghai was the shortest and I wish it had been longer – I mean, I wish I could have stayed in our hotel forever!
Shanghai is just as incredible as we see in all the photos! On arrival we went to another Indian Restaurant which looked over the Bund (waterfront) and it was just breathtaking. I’m also pretty certain we spotted a bit of the castle from Disneyland in the distance when we drove into the city – can neither confirm nor dey this, haha.
I actually regret not purchasing some Love Live! School Idol Project light novels I saw- they were 50 Yen each. Not the cheapest thing in the world for something not in English but still something I could never get here. :( Boo!
We went to Ninjang Road (the 5th Avenue of Asia) and wow, it was busy! It was so huge! There were so many different types of stores! From an M&Ms store with Star Wars merch to an arcade and a little Disney section, there was so much to see and do. It was a 5 minute walk from our hotel which was a godsend!
My mom and I discovered such a cute bakery opposite our hotel and we went there everyday. I tried all the cool red bean paste baked goodies and we even had a doughnut which had custard in the center which really tasted like ice-cream – such heaven!
Shanghai was also where I really stocked up on all my Pocky! Gosh guys, I bought a crazy amount! I still can’t believe how much I bought.
The temples and gardens in Shanghai were just stunning! I quite enjyed learning how silk was made too – I bought a lotion that has silk and pearl extracts in it. I don’t think I want to use it, it’s so pretty!
Overall, our stay in Shanghai wasn’t long but I already know we need to go back! Also, hello, Disneyland opens in June!
