As one of the largest and most culturally diverse countries in the world, China can be an intimidating place for any traveller. A land of philosophies and social behaviors that can be so foreign to our idea of Western culture, that we perhaps are a little hesitant to embrace its welcome. Fortunately Shanghai offers first time visitors to China a familiarity and happy medium. A place where East meets West and past meets present. The architecture of the city spans the millennium from ancient temples to European classics and record-breaking skyscrapers. It’s a city that appeals to my desire to live life to the fullest, embracing a golden era of art deco and social expression, offering a global flair with quiet confidence and modern style that emulates the roaring 20’s (very “Gatsby” like). In the first of my 3 episode series of Shanghai, I will highlight some of the local cuisine, observe an age-old craft of carving soapstone and enjoy “all the tea in China.”
