Yu Yuan Bazaar


The Yu Yuan Bazaar is just next to the famed Yu Yuan Gardens in Shanghai. Although everything may look old, this is actually a small section of streets which have been restored to former Chinese glory. It's filled with tea shops, souvenir stands, department stores and restaurants. It's a lovely place to visit in the day, but it definitely gets more magical at night.

Almost looks like a caricature of what we think China looks like. Does that make sense????

Virgina: I know exactly what you mean! But I think the Chinese like the caricature as well - there were more Chinese tourists than westerners!

PS: My new camera takes great pictures. I'm not sure I would have gotten such good night pictures with my old one.
