Shanghai is a wild mixing pot of culture, not only due to numerous Chinese peoples but also due to a collection of international ones. Britain, America, France and Japan all had land in the city in the 20th century,all still evident today from the European architecture along the river bank to the old Japanese factories further out. Now an economical power house, once known as the “Paris of the East”, the most populous city in China has a diverse range of buildings from Ming dynasty gardens hidden amongst skyscrapers to old slaughterhouses disguised as malls. We had a tiring day walking around the variety of buildings, but an enjoyable one, ending at the Yu Gardens, where we went for a peaceful park sit down but instead found ourselves exploring the old botanical gardens built for a Ming Emperor.
