My experience in Shanghai has worsened over the years – this trip being THE WORST. First of all, people are extremely rude. It is ironic that when I left Pudong Airport, there were big billboards indicating the friendliness of Shanghai city and people. “Shanghai Welcome You” and ... Details

I live in SE Asia, but originally form the UK.
I was used to seeing poverty, but for many visitors it may come as a very sharp shock to see the poverty of the older tenements beside newer, sleek apartments.
Much of the older buildings not yet pulled down have large posters to "curtain" ... Details

I was in Xiang Yang Market , Shanghai in the last days before the place was closed down by the authorities at the end of June 2006. A haven of fake goods sold to the locals and foreigners.

Being an avid country hopper, I’ve been here, there and a bit of everywhere. Mainly to countries in Europe and Asia if I’m honest, but nevertheless I like to think I’ve seen a fair chunk of what this wonderful planet has amidst its expanse. This brief introduction in mind, I hope to ... Details
