Shanghai, Winter and Holidays are Coming

Shanghai Winter and Holidays

This weekend the temperatures in the city dropped down significantly.   So, I thought to myself – the Shanghai Winter and Holidays are coming….finally!  So I grabbed my camera and off we (my wife and I) went to see how the cold weather and upcoming holidays are changing the city.

First we had to check out the local park – it has quite a number of ginko trees.  Those trees change colors in a beautiful, gold-like way… No, surprise – the ginko trees did not disappoint:

Then took some pictures of the rest of the park – the weather has made the trees go into all sort of reds and browns…Nice overall

Then we had a visit (and a very nice brunch) in one of the old Shanghai hotels – currently the Waldorf Astoria on the Bund.   No disappointment there either – we were greeted by a very nicely decorated Christmas tree — a nice start to the holiday season for us.

Next in line was the first of the Christmas markets we are visiting this year…But more on that one tomorrow….Enjoy the holidays
