It was my second time in Shanghai. I always wanted to come back to a far away place, which is rare, because i normally try to see as much different places as possible. But Shanghai was one of the cities I wanted to have a second view at. Old town is by far my favorite place in Shanghai, the only really original place there among all the shiny new LED lid madness of Pudong and Nanjing Road. Old town has temples, shabby streets, laundry handing everywhere, markets, food, no tourists at all, its all genuinely amazing. I took three days there, always waiting for perfect light and I wasnt disappointed a single time. Go get lost there, it is the best time you will have in Shanghai!
