Here they are: the pictures of the final 24 hours in Shànghǎi. Food, temples, exhibitions, streets and people... No photos were allowed so I can only tell you about the Propaganda Poster Art Centre. If you follow directions, you'll end up at a residential area but don't worry: there were no wrong turns and the PPAC is in the basement of one of the buildings in front of you. Their collection of posters is fantastic: a great view of China and its leaders and the view a whole country has of the outside world. Don't miss it if you're ever in town. The gift shop is perfect if you want to get some Shànghǎi Ladies postcards and small posters and even some propaganda postcards. We also visited the Jade Buddha Temple and boy was it impressive. As the name suggests, there's a buddha statue crafted from jade alone and it's one of the five statues that were shipped back to China in the turn of the 20th century.
Lunch was just across the temple. It was not a glamourous meal but …
Wanna know the best way to travel between Guilin and Yangshuo? I don't mean the most effective or cheaper option. I really mean THE BEST. Wanna know?
Pack your bags, bring a fan and put on sunglasses. Prepare yourself for a cruise along the Li River and enjoy 2h30mins of spectacular views. Not buying it? Enjoy the pictures below and let me know if I am wrong.
Such tan, much wow!!
When in China... *peace*
These are really some of my favourite pictures. I saw a lot while traveling in China, but the beauty of this cruise will always delight and amaze me.
Words truly fail me, I can't describe this scenery.
Guess what? The cruise takes to the place in the river that is printed in the 20¥ bill. Wonders of nature in currency.
Sorry if this post seems to show nothing but green and blue, mountains and water, but the images deserved a post of their own. The beauty does not end here. Like I said, we were on our way to Yangshuo...
