Pudong of Shanghai is the newest area developed. For this non-city lover, I have to say it was a marvel to look at. The architecture was remarkable. Not a single building was the same in shape and/or color. To get around Shanghai, we used the subway station. Pretty nice. It was easy to use and quite the adventure for us. Mike decided to have us take the subway to the train station and then take the bullet train back home to Suzhou. The train was fun. We plan on taking it to Bejing in early 2012. We may even do it to travel to Xi’an.
It takes over two hours to drive to Shanghai and the bullet train took only 20 minutes to get Suzhou. Mike said we went over 190 MPH. All I can say was, we flew. But it still took more time to get back to the condo taking the train. Between the subway transfers, train wait time and taxi drive from the train station to the condo. Over three hours to do that. Fun still. Shanghai is beauty in the day and night.
