The Bund, Shanghai

Shanghai's riverwalk divides history on one side and modern architecture on the other.

This futuristic landscape is the modern part of Shanghai, called Pudong, and it was taken from the old part of the town, the Bund. We'll get to Pudong in the coming posts, but now it's all about the Bund.


Xibo, Shanghai

The temple for Xinjiang cuisine in Shanghai.


Subconscious Spa, Shanghai

The best way to end a long day walking around Shanghai!


Yu Gardens, Shanghai

If crowds don't bother you, getting lost in this maze of gates, halls and gardens might be just fine for you...


Confucian temple, Shanghai

Also known as Wen Miao (文庙), this nice temple is a surprisingly calm oasis in the middle of bustling Shanghai.


Crystal Jade, Shanghai

Crystal Jade is a Singapore-owned Cantonese restaurant chain with delicious (but boiling hot) dishes. A good option for dining in the fashionable Xintiandi area.


Shanghai: useful info

This trip marked my first (and hopefully not last) visit to the Far East. Here's some useful information that I wish I had known before leaving and that I learned in my trip:


Radisson Blu, Milan

Just back from Asia, I found out that I'm featured in another blog! This time is the Radisson Blu's blog and the expats' suggestions while visiting Milan.
Radisson Blu Milan
While I haven't stayed myself at the Radisson Blu Milan (obviously, since I'm living here), I have stayed in other Radisson Blus in Europe, like Dusseldorf, Cologne, Rome and Berlin and always liked their philosophy: nice design, free wi-fi for all guests in all areas, nice spas or pool areas, hearty and delicious buffet breakfasts and excellent locations for visiting the city.

No doubt Milan is becoming a must-visit this and next year for the coming Expo, there are lots of new places to dine, drink and have fun so, if you're planing to visit Milan soon, be sure to check out what Radisson Blu Milan has to offer, and while you're at it, check out also my suggestions for eating and drinking in town!
