It was last Tuesday when I decided to get into a tourist mode and the destination for the day was Taikang Road. Note that I did not take any train ride on that day. Bus rides and loads of walking were done.
This place should not be missed when visiting Shanghai. It is my all-time top favourite place as it delivers genuine charm and vibrancy. The main activity here is shopping and you will be surprised to discover creative finds you could find here. I was so broke that I did not buy anything. Saving it for a foot massage at the end of the day.
Taikang Road has three main lanes that criss-crossed by irregular alleyways which makes exploration slightly messed up but fun. My main focus was Taikang Road Art Centre. It is the best lane for those who loves photography.
Not only would you have this big room to yourself, they provide unlimited drinks and food. I literally had my dinner there! After the massage, you could choose either to take a shower or bubble bath. Who wouldn’t choose bubble bath?! However, the place is quite dodgy if you asked me. To take my bath, I had to walk quite a distance and was brought to this all-mirrored wall room with a bed and a bathroom. Dodgy, eh?
However, it was a wonderful day and believe it or not, I almost forgo all these! I would be a fool if I did because I did enjoy spending time with myself. It was awesome and I am planning to do this again this Saturday but doing different activity.
