七宝老街 – Shanghai, China


七宝老街 (Qibao Ancient Street) is an ancient town which has been preserved for the purpose of tourism in Shanghai. However it is not a complete ancient town… just 2 stretches of old shops which is linked by a bridge. This is one of the attractions in Shanghai but it’s not very near the city. Nevertheless, I was there to check out all their street food and found some good stuff there actually! Check out the pictures I’ve taken!
