Shanghai

Shanghai

We have been in shanghai for 3 days. On the first day we went to a building with 88 levels and went to the top. It was so cloudy we couldn't see a thing. The building next door has 101 floors and the top was in the clouds. After we went to our hotel which wonderful and is right on the Bund which is the main attraction in Shanghai.

We went to the chinese acrobatic show last night. There were all different toes of gymnastics. My favourite was the motor cycles in side a big ball. There were five motor bikes speeding inside at the same time. It was amazing and scary.
We have done a lot of shopping and also visited the Yu Yuhan Gardens which is one of the oldest chinese gardens. It was beautiful.

There are 23 million people living in Shanghai which is about the same number of people living in all of Australia! It is very busy! Tomorow we leave for Phuket, Thailand.

Xiamen

Stop 2 in China

In Xiamen we went had a wonderful lunch beside the sea. It was huge...we had 10 courses of food and I had my first experience using a Chinese toilet...not very pretty! I much prefer ours. Later that day we went to a tea house called Mr Tea and my mum sampled different yes of tea. I only got to smell them. I was given a dragon cup and when you put hot tea or water in it the dragon turns bright red.

That night we were back on the boat and we went to a concert for a group named Metro. It was four men and when they sang they had no instruments, it was just their voices. Two of them were beat boxers and they all sang as well. They were wonderful and I bought a CD which they signed for me.

The next day we went to another show on the boat and it was an ice skating show. It was amazing, they jumped, spun and danced on the ice, even in skeleton costumes!

Hong Kong

China

Today we arrived in hong kong. It was not as nice as we expected because it rained. We caught a tram up a really steep mountain to The Peak. We went up to the Sky Terrace and saw the view of Hong Kong. After that we caught a bus down to the Light Show. It wasn't that spectacular as we hoped, it was really just spotlights and lasers.

The next day it was still raining. We went on a tour to a Buddhist temple and we also rode the People Mover which is the longest escalator in the world. We saw the really old part of Hong Kong. We also tried to go to the biggest Toys R Us but we ran out of time...BOO! All I bought was a crystal elephant...not good!
