China Shanghai and Beijing

China

China was another amazing place, with my first visit and a quiet a number of other firsts.

First time in Shanghai, Beijing, on the great wall of china, on a bullet train traveling over 300km/h, eating in a vegan restaurant, eating a meal of just duck necks among other things.

With some incredible food, and stark contrasts between modern and old china.

This place is well worth a visit but as a tourist there are people constantly trying to scam you. so beware.

The Chinese bullet train was a great way to get between Shanghai and Beijing. It takes a little longer than the plane, but you get to see so much more, it is about a 5 1/2 hour journey that is very comfortable and quiet.
