The most famous street in the whole of China must be the "Nanjing Road" in Shanghai, quoted by my previous Mandarin language teacher who hailed from Shanghai itself. He explained that so much history has taken place along the stretch of The Bunds where the Huangpu River flows & blah blah blah...
Today, we can see all the most expensive brand boutiques lining along East Nanjing Road. It was lovely to just window shop outside to view their showcase displays and dream of wearing them - Cartier, Bvlgari, Prada, Dior, Burberry, Gucci & you just name it.
The night was cool and windy, so we decided to take a stroll, hand in hand to see its famous lighted buildings. It was really awesome to see the fantastic French architecture buildings with huge pillars, motifs and statues all over. I felt that I was strolling in the boulevards of Paris!
Here, I posed outside the famous Peace Hotel. If you have read or watched movies of the Shanghai Bunds, you will know this hotel. The room rates are above RM1500 per night for all rooms along Nanjing Road, so I stayed along the back lanes for less than half price!
We loved the romantic strolls along the Bunds, so we went there twice! It will make even the most boring person become romantic and sentimental to renew the love vows again.
This is the lovely view of Pudong area across the Huangpu River.
Every building looked very beautiful and majestic with its own unique design and European architecture. All owned by multi-national banks and companies.
My honey loved this building the most.
The holidays were over but the crowds were still there!!!
This building is my favourite and I told him that I will be back soon!
