Shanghai, like Beijing had beautiful weather. Unfortunately, most of the Bund is under construction, thanks to the Expo being held in Shanghai next year. When it is not under construction it is quite lovely.

We spent most of the morning at YuYuan Gardens. This was originally built by some very rich people back in the Ming Dynasty, but subsequently was destroyed by the Japanese. After many dollars and years later, the Yu Yuan Gardens are very lovely and quite serene assuming you can avoid the throngs of tourists.

Then it was off to the Bund and then finally off for a martini at the Grand Hyatt. They had to see the city from both perspectives, day and evening, just to compare!

Enroute to the Bund. There's still glimpses of old Shanghai
