This photo was taken in KLIA @ 25/10/2011 12:00am. Despite my chidren had flight before, they were excited while we were at the airport for flight to Shanghai.
This was taken upon arrival at the Shanghai Pudong International airport on 25/10/2011 morning. We were at the luggage counter to collect our luggage. A bit worried for not able to locate our luggage at first.
This is the Magnetic Train. Understood from the China tour guide, this is the fastest train in the world and is also called “flight machine on the ground” that flew the lowest plant on earth. Its speed is 400 to 55o kilometer per hour. Despite the speed, we hardly felt the speed momentum and the bumpy feeling associated with it as when we ride a car or the usual train. It was only when we looked out the window, we could feel the train’s speed.
Not quite sure the name of this place, if I am correct, this place is located at Nan Jing Road. We had our breakfast here. There are certain restaurants famous for what the China tour guide told us, i.e. “small dragon pau”. However, the food is not cheap, in fact, we were not quite used to the taste of the food here, and felt the food is not worth the money paid. There are a lot of shops selling various items, again, almost all the items are expensive. The China tour guide assured us, will take us to certain places for buying reasonable price items in our Shanghai trip.
Following were some photos taken while we were there.
These photos were taken in the afternoon somewhere in Suzhou. We had our Kentucky lunch there. Frankly, I felt the Kentucky outlet in China served better food and with more variety than in Malaysia. Surprisingly, KFC in China is not expensive, partly because our Ringgit currency is stronger than Chinese Renminbi. Don’t think the currency conversion rate at RM1 to CNY 2 will remain forever, judging from China’s economic development in recent years! Despite their rapid development or what some people called the 2nd super economic country after USA, we found a lot of beggars in Shanghai while walking along the Nan Jing road!
This was taken on the road side while touring Suzhou.
The above photos were taken when the tour guide took us to Jinji Lake Scenic and Suzhou Bird’s Nest, my undertanding was that these are the Science and Cultural Arts center in Suzhou.
This photo was taken in Lion Garden (pardon me if the name is not right, as I did not pay attention to what the tour guide said. In fact, you will learn a lot if you really pay full attention!)
From the photos took, it is no wonder why this Suzhou Garden is one of the masterpiece in the world’s heritage list!
Don’t quite remember where the local China tour guide took us to at night, anyway was quite enough for our first day in Shanghai, our bodies are tired and need to recharge for tomorrow tour itinerary!
