Our day off had finally arrived! We met our tour guide Michael in the lobby at 9 a.m. to get our day of shopping and sightseeing started. We all anxiously boarded the bus excited for our first stop at Yu Yuan in old town Shanghai. The architecture was traditional, just how you might imagine it. They had a variety of shops such as tea, clothing, calligraphy and souvenirs. One of our favorites was the wholesale pearl shop. They had a selection of colors and styles and we were lucky enough to see a “pearls birth” (oysters labor).
Our next stop was to Nanxiang Steamed Bun, one of the most famous dumpling restaurants in Shanghai. They sell 250,000 dumplings a day and we all agree that the 30-minute line was definitely worth it. After a few hours of shopping, we worked up an appetite. Our tour guide suggested we head over to a German Brewery called Paulaner.

Reenergized from lunch we were ready for the bargaining to begin. That was an unforgettable experience. The fashion market is every shopper’s paradise with four stories full of everything you could think of. We left with bags in hand and smiles on our faces. Day 4 in Shanghai was a day to remember.
