Day One

Day One

After a Skype session over breakfast, we jumped on the metro for the first time and headed over to the Pearl Tower. We took the lift 290m up onto the clear sky deck. After milling about scaring the height-shy locals, we left and looked through the history museum.

After grabbing a bite to eat, we took the metro to the oldest temple in Shanghai – the Jing’an Temple. Pretty impressive temple surrounded by modern skyscrapers!

With everyone running out of puff we decided to head to the city tour bus. We rode it for two hours looking at a variety of incredible buildings and pretty neighbourhoods.

After heading back to the hotel for a break, we went to dinner as a group. We squeezed into a tiny restaurant and order a record number of spring rolls!

Upon returning to the hotel, kids retired to their room and the teachers retired to the lobby. A big day of exploring!
