best things to do in shanghai

i miss shanghai but i’m also glad to be in london where i’m close to my family and friends. however, what is a shame is that i have a bunch of bars, restaurants and cafes that i used to frequent and now they’re 5700 miles away and i’ll probably never visit them again. if you’re in shanghai, please visit them for me. for reference, most of these places are in xuhui.

districts to visit:

the bund, xitandi, jingan, tianzhifang, people’s square, french former concession. i dont recommend visiting yu gardens (make a short trip to suzhou instead for gardens), but the area surrounding yu gardens is pretty.
