Day 4 - Shanghai

Hi everyone

Today was a bit more relaxed and we got to sleep in a bit before breakfast. As I said I did try the dried snail which turned out to be tiny tiny dried prawns lol. They weren't too bad.

We left the hotel and took a 90 min bus ride to a water town (can't remember the name - sorry). It's basically like a bazaar with canals running through. People also live there. They also sell all different types of food - some of which I can't even begin to tell you what they were and how badly they smelled lol

We had another lovely lunch at one of the many restaurants and then free time. It's easy to get lost in the streets as the all look similar. We had to back track once. We took a small boat ride back to the entrance before heading back to the hotel. Dinner was your own choice and we headed to the local mall where we caught up with a couple of people from the tour and decided on pizza.

The night river to see the lights of Shanghai is very popular and there are about a dozen operating each night and they are fully booked. The lights were so beautiful and we got lots of photos.

Time for bed soon as we have an early start tomorrow as we fly to Wuhan, then a bullet train to Yichang before boarding the Victoria Anna that will take us through the Three Girges to Chonquing.

Don't forget to check out the photos.

Cheers
Janelle & Cheryl
