Shanghai part 1...

Hey Lovelies, Hope your having a wonderful Friday, I'm having a chill Friday so decided to share my time in Shanghai last weekend with you. It was a last minute holiday that my friend and I couldn't wait for a little getaway from Beijing.  Shanghai is so different from Beijing, it's more western, cultural and lots of things to do. Unfortunately, we only had a day and a half so we tried our best to fit everything in. 

 We took the night train on Friday and arrived in Shanghai at 7.30 am. We stayed at the 
Tuke China Hotel . It was a last minute booking so we didn't know much about the hotel but we loved that it was so close to central. We were about 10 minutes drive from Tai Kang road which is the french district. When we arrived I fell in love with the interior design and style. 

We started off our day with breakfast at the Brut Eatery which is really famous and known in Shanghai. After a long night train I just wanted to have a good meal. 

Our first adventure started in Tai Kang road, where we decided to get lost and explore the beautiful french inspiraton. We found ourselves amazed by a chinese man drawing portriaits of a little boy so we decided why not! I've always wanted to get a  portrait but I was either too shy or had no time. I was shocked by how a 3 year old sat down for so long so I thought, if he can do it then I'm sure I can do it!

The weather was so beautiful, with a high of 24 degrees which made me regret wearing trousers instead of a summery dress ! haha!

We spent most of the morning, exploring the streets of Shanghai.. Next post will be up soon x

What an incredible experience! I cannot get over that portrait you had done. It is remarkable!
