    "Sophia,

    We have returned home and we are going through our many pictures (around 700). We had a wonderful visit to your beautiful country and I must say that working with you and the tour guides made it even more special. When we return to that side of the world, we will be contacting you again. We still need to come to Guilin and see the beautiful sights that you see every day.

    Angela was great. She is a pleasant and pretty young lady and she knows so much about the sights in Chengdu. My son really liked talking to her.

    Peter was very good but his English can use some improvement. He was extremely patient with us and accommodated our needs wonderfully.

    May was also very good and professional. It is obvious she knows her subject and she is a great sales person.

    I look forward to using your services again. Thank you for everything and thank you for the gift. It is hanging on the wall in my home. I think of you every time I see it.

    Sincerely,

    Andersen "

    [Yu Gardern]
    Yuyuan Garden is a famous classical garden located in Anren Jie, Shanghai. The garden was finished in 1577 by a government officer of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) named Pan Yunduan. Yuyuan Garden occupies an area of 20,000 square meters (about five acres). However, the small size is not a representative of the attractions of the garden. The pavilions, halls, rockeries, ponds and cloisters all have unique characteristics. There are six main scenic areas in the garden: Sansui Hall, Wanhua Chamber, Dianchun Hall, Huijing Hall, Yuhua Hall and the Inner Garden. Each area features several scenic spots within its borders.

    "That garden represents the lifestile of the rich chinese families. It is planned so, that after every corner you find a new point of view on an artificial landscape, with wonderfull shapes of rocks, plants, pavilions and if you look at the roofs, strange mystical creatures statues. The garden located in the center of the renewed chinatown that functions as a big bazar. a realy must in Shanghai."
    Mr. Jerusalem.

    [The Bund]
    is a waterfront area in central Shanghai, People's Republic of China. The area centres on a section of Zhongshan Road (East-1 Zhongshan Road) within the former Shanghai International Settlement, which runs along the western bank of the Huangpu River, facing Pudong, in the eastern part of Huangpu District. The Bund usually refers to the buildings and wharves on this section of the road, as well as some adjacent areas. It is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Shanghai. Building heights are restricted in this area.

    "If you stay in sh, i would have to go to bund. The view is amazing, both during the day and night. Of course it looks like something already seen (ny, hk, singapore) but even if it's a turistic area it' s a place to see during your stay in sh."
    Mr. Paolo.

    [Oriental Pearl TV Tower]
    This 468 meters (1,536 feet) high tower is the world's third tallest TV and radio tower surpassed in height only by towers in Toronto, Canada and Moscow, Russia. However, even more alluring than its height is the tower's unique architectural design that makes the Oriental Pearl TV Tower one of the most attractive places anywhere. The base of the tower is supported by three seven-meter wide slanting stanchions. Surrounding the eleven steel spheres that are 'strung' vertically through the center of the tower are three nine-meter wide columns. There are three large spheres including the top sphere, known as the space module. Then there are five smaller spheres and three decorative spheres on the tower base. The entire structure rests on rich green grassland and gives the appearance of pearls shining on a jade plate.

    Ms. Grace.

    [Shanghai History Museum]
    The new Shanghai History Museum, located now just below the Oriental TV Tower at Pudong New Area, was formally opened to the public on July 1, 2000. There are three major exhibition units reflecting Shanghai's history, modern and recent revolutionary history. In a 4,000-square-metre exhibition hall, the 1,000 artefacts and exhibits are elaborately arranged to revive the old Shanghai. Amidst the unique shikumen, or stone-arched houses and various Chinese shops, visitors are able to savour the charm of the oriental metropolis, once the largest city in the Far East.

    [Jiangnan Silk Workshop]
    See how silk is produced from the cocoons of silk worms, and turned into the beautiful fabric we all know and love. Silk filled duvets are excellent value, and the showroom offers everything from small souvenirs to larger items. The beauty of real silk is that it's so light, and packs really easily.

    [Jade Buddha Temple]
    is a Buddhist temple in Shanghai, China. As with many modern Chinese Buddhist temples, the current temple draws from both the Pure Land and Chan traditions of Mahayana Buddhism. It was founded in 1882 with two jade Buddha statues imported to Shanghai from Burma by sea. These were a sitting Buddha (1.95 metres tall, 3 tonnes), and a smaller reclining Buddha representing Buddha's death. The temple now also contains a much larger reclining Buddha made of marble, donated from Singapore, and visitors may mistake this larger sculpture for the original, smaller piece.


    "A working temple"
    Reviewed April 20, 2012
    "The temple has several temples with budhha statues, though the most precious one seems to be a large wood panelled room with one of the two jade ones...a very luxuriant and peaceful place. No photos. The best part was that the saffron robed monks were having a large ceremony in another huge elaborately decorated temple during our visit...fascinating to glimpse a culture less familiar to one's own! It´s a very beautiful place to visit, very interesting and you see a bit of ancient China. Lots of people praying and lots of incense. Would say it was a highlight of my trip to Shanghai!"

    [Tianzifang]
    Tian Zi Fang, originated from the Chian’s first artist recorded in Chuang Tzu was named by Huang Yongyu, the leading authority in painting. Shikumen architectural style is preserved intact in Tian Zi Fang, which gathers many interesting featured shops showing a lively and colorful picture.

Ms. Reilly

    [Xintiandi]
    Xintiandi is an affluent car-free shopping, eating and entertainment district of Shanghai, China. It is composed of an area of reconstituted traditional shikumen ("stone gate") houses on narrow alleys, some adjoining houses which now serve as book stores, cafes and restaurants, and shopping malls. Most of the cafes and restaurants feature both indoor and outdoor seatings. Xintiandi has an active nightlife on weekdays as well as weekends, though romantic settings are more common than loud music and dance places. It is considered one of the first lifestyle centers in China.

    "We enjoyed Xintiandi very much, we had drinks from one place to the next and we like to just seat there and soak in the ambience of the old Shanghai. Then we started eating from western food on the streets to dim sum in the larger building which was excellent. Clearly, this place is for the upmarket residence or foreigners..."
