Situated in Pudong New Area of Shanghai, Century Park is by far the most beautiful place I have ever visited. It may be known as a park, but it is so much more than that. With it's sprawling fields, multiple flower garden, forest areas and a huge lake, it is quite simply wonderful.
I was quite young when I visited the gardens. My parents and I visited friends who lived in Shanghai. On our last day, they took as to Century Park. It's well worth the cheap entry fee and the best way to see everything is by pedal-car. For people who love huge open spaces, beautiful scenery and nature at its finest - visit Century Park.

A fantastic restaurant located next to the Phoenix Hostel on Yunnan Street in central Shanghai. There is a wonderful array of local and Chinese provincial specialities on offer including Hunnan style pork buns and lamb and shrimp dim sum. All are utterly cheap in price as well as being exquisite in taste. Definitely worth a visit if you get a chance.

This was my first taste of Korean Barbeque, and my friend, a native Korean, mentioned that this was one of the finest places in Shanghai. My friend couldn't have been more right, as the food served here was excellent and very light.
