On May 3rd, we took a subway to view “The Bund” – the water front promenade located at the bank of river Huang Pu. The  day we visited this world famous sight was on a Chinese holiday (May day holidays), so we were greeted by a lot of local Chinese tourists. I found people in this country to be friendly and warm. An occasional smile or a greeting such as “Welcome to China” were heart warming!

The oriental pearl tower is a TV tower, a tall structure that towers above most of the buildings in the bund.

Who would expect to see this breath taking flower garden in the middle of high rise buildings cluster?

Overall, exploring Shanghai on foot proved to be a worthwhile expedition. We returned back to the hotel well satisfied!
