Shanghai, China

It was last October 28, 2018...
my first trip to Shanghai, China!

Shanghai, China

I was super excited because it was my first time traveling to China!
I've been hearing so much about Shanghai and was quite curious about that city too.

Shanghai, China

And this pink Chinese money!!! <3

Shanghai, China

Me and my friend we booked our flight and hotel on Expedia...
We were trying to find a cheaper flight on Skyscanner and everything but ended up booking on Expedia...it was my friend's first time using it, I like and use Expedia a lot because it's convenient. 
This is not an ad...but yeah sponsor me Expedia! lol

Oh yeah and we used China Eastern Airlines.
It was really nice, good service, clean and me and my friends were very satisfied.

Shanghai, China

It was also my first time going on a trip with my best friend!
I usually like traveling alone so this was really new experience for me.

Shanghai, China

She's been my best friend for more than 20 years.
It's a long story I also talked about her on my instagram...
But yeah she's the best! <3

Shanghai, China

It was only short flight from Seoul to Shanghai about 2 hours.

Shanghai, China

We got on the Maglev 

Shanghai, China

It's a super fast train and the best way to get into the city.
It's connected to the metro subway station.

Shanghai, China

Then we got this 3 day pass for the metro.
Shanghai has great metro subway system.
It was cheap and we went everywhere on the metro for 3 days.

Shanghai, China

Since in Shanghai it was sooooo hard to catch taxi...and most of the taxi drivers didn't speak English...not only taxi drivers but we didn't really meet anyone speaking good English except for the hotel employees.
But we used Taxi few times and is was very cheap but it was kinda scary, drivers were not that friendly...kinda crazy too lol.

Shanghai, China

We didn't get data plans for our cell phones and it was kinda hard to find wifi...so we literally had to look at the free map i picked it up for fun at the airport. lol
because we got lost when we tried to find our hotel...and through this trip we were lost like half of our entire time there...hahahaha
we got frustrated sometimes but now we think and talk about it...such fun memories...

Shanghai, China

this was the pic i posted on my instagram from our hotel room!
i didn't expect this view but omg!
looked like a future city from a movie or something!

and the first thing we found in this hotel room was this cute bathtub! <3
Shanghai, China
then we started taking pictures of course...

Shanghai, China

and posting on instagram lol
ahh one more thing...
in China...
Facebook, Instgram, Twitter, Google all that stuffs are blocked...
So you have to download VPN app BEFORE you go to China in order to use those apps.
My friend didn't do that so she couldn't do anything...:(

Shanghai, China

It's located right next to Yu Garden very famous tourist spot and close to Yu Garden metro station.

Shanghai, China

You can also get Garden view but we were so happy with the city view.
I was seriously so amazed!
Look at my face lol

Shanghai, China

We were heading out for dinner at found this mirror...

Shanghai, China

So we started taking a lot of photos lol

Shanghai, China

My friend doesn't really like taking photos but she took some too lol

Shanghai, China

All these street signs were only in Chinese so it was so hard for us to find our way...
Even us as Korean we learn some basic Chinese characters in school...
But yeah...only few letters we knew...but that helped little bit too...haha
