This photo was taken in front of a fountain of the hotel we stayed. Overall, we were quite satisfied with our hotel accommodation, and the breakfast that we had since we came to Shanghai.
This was taken during our visit to a pearl shop in Nanjing. My observation was that the tour guide liked to take us to visit their famous merchant outlets, thought the China tour guides earned commission from what the tourist bought and at the same time let the tourists satisfied their buying taste bud and had the chance to bring home China’s local products, a win-win strategy!
Don’t quite sure the name of this place, but is one of Jiang Nan famous garden, with sculpture at the hill, water and plant phase set off that make up a picturesque scenery.
The young man with black shirt is the tour guide from Malaysia, a helpful and friendly guy. Throughout our journey to Shanghai, we had different local China tour guides to accompany us. My understanding was that this is one of the rules set by the China government. On why such, think is because each China local tour guide knows better than anyone else of their local custom and culture and that the China government wants to promote their tourism industry.
Understood from the China tour guide, the statues as shown above was built from their childhood contribution, do you believe?
The background was the YangTze River Bridge in Nanjing. From the China tour guide, China people really feel proud of this bridge. This is because it was built without any technical help from other countries and is the first double type railway built solely by China people.
The following photos were taken at night while we toured around the night market in Wuzheng. The street was crowded with people, and this water village is waterside towns to the south of Yangtze River with beautiful houses, bridges, streets and lanes on water!
