There are many, many things to do in Shanghai, so it was a bit surprising that every Chinese tourist in the area (I estimate about 25,000) plus about 500 western tourists seemed to decide to visit the Yuyuan Bazzar at exactly the same time as we did.
At any one moment, you could take a photo of someone taking a photo of someone taking a photo. Surely, all of these photos don’t end up on blogs?
We escaped into this cha guan (红茶馆), where we enjoyed some cha and some weird food to go with it. I had Oolong, and Lindsey had Pu-erh.
Then it was a case of deep joy when I discovered that being old allowed me to get into the Yuyuan Gardens for half price! Being young, Lindsey had to pay the full amount.
