A 5D4N trip with family from 28th Oct – 1st Nov.

The journey started by reaching Hangzhou Xiao Shan Airport, then we travelled straight to Shanghai by Airasia shuttle bus (100¥). It took around 3 hours.

Once we reached Shanghai Huang Pu bus station, taxi to Lakeside Holiday Inn Hotel is pretty convenient. It’s already 5 ish when we reached Shanghai, time to meet Linda for dinner…after an hour of rest, we walked 5 minutes to Nanjing walking street and tried to catch a taxi. Shanghai has many taxi and also many passengers…and that’s why we hardly get one. Another 10 minutes walk to Peach Hotel 和平飯店, we managed to get one and headed to 幸福131@宛平路。

A very beautiful township but I had a bad experience with the locals. Just beware when you enter a temple named 聖堂。Being inexperienced, I was being forced to donate $! I just thought that they should have approached the prayers in a more appropriate and polite way…

Highly recommended by our tour guide. So we dine in this restaurant:
