A day in Shanghai

Anfu Road

This is a road with lots of foreigners’ residence buildings and shops, next to Huashan Road, where I lived more than 15 years when I first arrived in Shanghai, now I visit again to feel the difference. I knew before it had lots of good coffee shops and wine shops. It changed a bit to be more carefree. Also the Spanish Cultural Centre and Economic and Commerce Centre has a library on the second floor.

Fuxing Road

Fuxing Road has lots of restaurants and cafe, where you can find a ham shop, supermarket for imported stuff, river crab retails.

Nanjing Road has more coffee shops and bakeries. Here Village 127 is a great bakery shop with great coffee as well.

Jingan Sculpture Park is next to the Shanghai Natural History Museum.

The Spanish ham bar located in Yanping Road close to Jingan District, where lots of foreigners also reside. I had a great ham breakfast experience.

Old restaurant is also great to visit here.

Yongpingli, Shanghai

A commercial property redeveloped by the grandkids of Baoyugang, the former world boat king.

Yongpingli has a Havana Bar, a Peru and Spanish restaurant with sunny courtyard, flower shop and a great wine tasting shop, bakery and coffee.

It has weekend music band and market day. Formally an old lane residence area owned by the government, Yongpingli has a renovated feeling of good life as followed by old connoisseurs whom are called by “Laogui”, the second generation of “Laokelang”, which means for old bourgeois who loves coffee, jazz, nice food and western style of life.

A five star hotel called “12 Road” was built up, now serves for the guest of World Import Fair from 5th-10th Nov., 2018, hosted by China for the first time.

Being next to the Hengshan Road, the bar street of Shanghai, it is a quiet area closing to convenience of nightlife.
