The French concession and the Bund
10.09.2010 34 °C
Started the day off going down to an area called the French concession. This area has a very French bohemian feel the architecture a cross between french and Chinese. A very nice part of town to stroll around for a couple of hours except that it felt like 100degrees it was so hot and muggy. Spent a bit of time just sitting in a cafe drinking slushies and cooling off.
Next we went to Peoples square a popular place for the locals with lots of huge multiple level shopping malls selling Gucci, Chanel, Prada etc.
Stopped in a little side street for some Chinese dinner, looked safe enough and was very tasty. Two mains, fried rice, a beer and soft drink only 12 dollars.
Then we walked down to the Bund for the night time views of Pudong across the river. Half of China must have had the same idea. It was packed with Chinese tourist coming and going.
