As all the good things have to come to an end, my semester abroad will end on Thursday by a Chinese exam. This experience in Shanghai was incredible. There is a flabbergasting energy in this city that never sleeps. I met so much people from different way of life, lived countless experiences I could not have expected before. Finally, I changed a lot, as my habits and expectations did. I was very excited to go in Asia, and I discovered a culture which is so different that I thought. Each people I met will remain in my heart like a piece of who I am right now, everything I lived was so unspeakable. Living in this megalopolis can be a challenging experience, but it is definitely the best way to understand the world of nowadays.
Shanghai is the town that's tailored to you, you can get your favorite suit, dress, jeans, even your best gown copied here.The tailors at the South Bund Fabric will make anything you can dream up for a fraction of the designer price. Although Shanghai moves at a frenetic clip, there are still a few places where it is best to stroll at a more leisurely pace. The skyline is incredible and I think nobody can stop watching it - the Oriental Pearl Tower was the first building to define the Shanghai cityscape and it is irreplaceable. We could go on about the history of the Bund and how, even today, the city's most respected business, loved restaurant and infamous clubs all call the Bund home, but we don't need to. It's The Bund. Enough said.
There are so much things that make Shanghai the greatest city on this big planet of ours. Everyone should live here at one point in their life. There is no better city to experience the energy and complex rise of China.
ABOUT THE NEXT GOOD THINGS... LET'S GO TO:
I just can't wait to go on this trip that will hopefully help me to live this change of scene... Do the YinYang Festival on the Great Wall in Beijing, and then starting in Siem Reap to visit the enormous temple complex that is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Then Malaysia, Singapore and Bali: chill out on beautiful beaches, soak up stunning sunsets, swim under waterfalls, do a dolphin boat trip to all 3 Gili islands, snorkel with turtles... I can't wait for this amazing travel I have expected for so long, and I am pretty sure it would be the better way to end this incredible semester abroad. I am so grateful to everyone I met and made this experience so amazing, and can't wait for the next experiences abroad I will live - the best is yet to come...
