Unfortunately, we both got pretty sick after the first few days of arriving. I spent most of the time at our room at the Hyatt on the Bund. Which wasn’t the worst situation to be in considering we had one of the most amazing views in all of Shanghai. At night, the lights overlooking Pudong illuminate and elevate the ambiance of our room. We would turn off the lights, open the curtains and just stare off into skyline as we fell asleep all while being entertained by the casino boats that light up along the Huangpu River at night. It’s truly spectacular and one day, I’d love to come visit China for New Years!

We did manage to get some sightseeing in while were there. We walked along the bund, home of some of Shanghai’s most beautiful historical buildings. Most of these buildings housed banks from all over the world. The structures reminded me of Europe. After our walk, we headed to Xintiandi, one of China’s notable shopping areas. We grabbed a bite over at one of my fiance’s favorite pizza spots, Pizza Marzano. Shortly after, we headed over to Yu Gardens. This was a part of Shanghai he hasn’t been to in all his trips out there, so it was good to experience something new together. While I did enjoy visiting the gardens, it was very crowded and hard to walk around.

While I was only there for a week, it’s definitely not my last trip out there. While I did spend most of my time hanging out in the room and ordering room service, it was the trip I needed. It was the right amount of relaxation to recharge me for the upcoming season. It also helped that China blocked Instagram and Facebook so I wouldn’t be so obsessed about it during my trip. Things have been so go-go-go lately with all that’s going on with my life that sometimes you just need a break.
