Journey to the Old and Ultra Modern Shanghai

Coming back home from Brisbane, Australia for the summer holidays, my parents gave me the option of whether to follow them to Shanghai, China the next month for a holiday. Opportunities like this does not come very often and one does not turn down such offers. My experience from traveling overseas when I was younger was a lot different from now as I see things very differently after discovering my passion for photography.

I couldn't really remember much about Shanghai when I traveled with my dad there about 7-8 years ago. Didn't even own a camera back then and yes, I was your regular layman. Only remembered that we stayed at Nanjing road and didn't really visit many places.

We stayed at Nanjing road again because it's right at the heart of Shanghai and the entire road is a pedestrian street, filled with shopping complexes, tons of eateries, hotels, cultural sites.
