West Lake, Wuzhen and Shanghai are among the three most distinctive places had left an impact to me!

West Lake has the most beautiful natural scenery that one feel so relax and no worries,
according to the tourist that the ratio of 1 Hangzhou citizen equal to matured 100 trees.
So, a trip to Hangzhou is simply to discover the beauty of nature!

Wuzhen is a humble water village that gives you unlimited surprises. Both the day & night views were incredibly beautiful & mystery, all beyond description. Too bad, I can't share all the shots here with you all. It's a must visit place if you like history, architecture and village life....

Shanghai is a metropolitan modern city with fast pace life. However, I didn't get to visit most of the tourit attraction places here, as I have only 1 day touring Shanghai city in the evening and visiting the local goverment boutique shop on the next day. Plus, visiting World Expo from 3pm to 9pm. 

Generally, the places I went to Shanghai all are superb and fascinating! I particularly like the river cruise at the bund, the flashing decorative lightings from all towers surrounding at night not just brigthen the city but also have melted the hearts of all that been there before! 
What a pity, my camera couldn't capture good night scene of this tour.

In conclusion, I feel it's a need to revisit Shanghai for the second time, the next time I make sure I am equip with a good camera to capture the night shots I had missed.

The reason to travel is not just to let yourself leave footprint at different places in the world but it's to broaden our knowledge and to respect others.
It's just so much to learn!

I enjoy seeing the architecture of China. It is so different from what I see routinely. I don't blame you for wanting to go back. I wish I could go there too.
