Day 4 of Shanghai, my last full day.
This day we decided to go to an ancient water village just outside of Shanghai. Now let me just say, if you plan on going here, do not take the tour bus. Just drive there. Why? Because we got there just before 12 noon. And our bus was scheduled to leave around 530 (I think). Let me just say I was done with this place in a little bit over an hour. The rest of the time, I just sat on a bench near the entrance and played angry birds on my iphone. So my suggestion is to just drive there so you can leave whenever you please 🙂
The town was cool. It’s described as the Venice of China. This place was just a lot of vendors however. I did buy something- a silk dress shirt, because I felt like I needed to buy something that day.
It was nice to just sit at a bench and watch the boats go by though.
This was before entering the village (and there is an entrance fee).
Inside, you can pay for a boat tour.

I would say this one is one of my favorite pictures of the day.
This was my last full day in Shanghai. My flight was at 10 am the next morning, which I missed. Yes, I missed it. I left the hotel before 8 thinking I would get to the airport by 9. Got to the airport around 9:45. Totally missed my flight! But I was able to get onto the next flight through standby.
I didn’t get back to Korea and in my apartment until after 7pm. It was a looong traveling day :/
Anyways, this Shanghai trip had it’s ups and downs. It was definitely an experience!
