As a Vegas virgin I was unsure whom to go with in the quest to squeeze as much canyon

Ni Hao Shanghai!

Family fun in Shanghai Recently a friend remarked, that Shanghai has one of the most spectacular duelling skylines in the world. The intersection of the old world with the new is like a scene from a movie which flicks from the past to the present. ‘The Bund’ a waterfront area lined with stunning examples of
