Summer Vacation | China Trip 2015 Day 12 | Jingan Temple & The Bund Shanghai

China Travel

Day 12 was our second day in Shanghai for our China Vacation 2015, and we explored some of the more touristy things that the city has to offer, but of course I did go back to The Bund in the evening to check out more of the famous skyline views! Another day putting the Sony A7ii to the test as a travel camera!

The famous singles market in Shanghai! Parents come here to meet other parents and try to play matchhmaker. On the front of the umbrellas are their kid’s qualifications :)

Jumping on the Big Bus Shanghai I took the option to go to the top of the Jing Mao building where I attempted to catch a sunset. With the fog and smog today I didn’t really see the sun and the view was rather cloudy, but it still was an amazing view!

Our First Trip Together
It is a make-up post for our first trip ever together. The saying is that if a couple can get along well in a trip, then they can get along well in their marriage. So we were nervous, but of course, we got along super well. Woman is always the one deciding the direction, so I decided going to Savannah, GA for a short road trip.  I always saw introduction in TV and was intrigued to see this old town. On the way to Savannah, we also stopped by St. Augustine, FL, a beautiful harbor city by Florida east coast.

Summer Vacation | China Trip 2015 Day 9 | Wuyi Hiking Tea & Zhang Yimou’s Impression Dahongpao
Day 9 of our Summer trip to China saw yet another blazing hot Summer day, and more hiking in the mountains of the Wuyi area for us! We took a car in the morning to a more remote corner of Wuyi to hike this huuuuge waterfall area. On the bright side we took a little tram up to the peak and only had to hike down, but it was still a long day of walking in the mountains. However we were treated to pretty spectacular nature views which was much less crowded than the easier to access areas of Wuyi. Well, it was still crowded, this is China of course, but still quieter than other areas of China! All photos taken with the Sony A7ii mirrorless camera ...

Summer Vacation | China Trip 2015 Day 4 | Min Tai + Jimei
This is another quick Vacation post here on the ol' blog, a break from all the Indian weddings and engagements and traveling back and forth from New York to Atlanta! Day 4 of our vacation we headed to the outskirts of Xiamen to find Min Tai, an old ancient town that was turned into a tourist destination and then fell into misuse. Long gone are the buses of tourists to see some of "old China" but the locals are still hanging out on the streets of Min Tai, and the temple itself is still functioning of course. Interesting place to visit, not sure it would make my "Top 10 Sights of Xiamen" but interesting nonetheless! After spending the morning a ...
