Shanghai Taikang Road

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.

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.

Stay tuned!
