634. Shanghai | Xintiandi & Tianzifang

Tianzifang Shanghai
Tianzifang in Shanghai is a cozy area of little alleyways lined with trendy independent boutiques, restaurants, bars, and artsy shops. The area retains an "original" feel of Shanghai, as the buildings have not been reconstructed so that the original 1930s architecture and style have been preserved.

After that we went to Xintiandi, another popular area of the city. The architecture of the buildings here were still traditional yet more modern than Tianzifang. There were lots of high-end restaurants and stores and apparently one of the best areas for nightlife.

633. Kyoto | Fishing Villages

Amanohashidate
In the photo above is Amanohashidate, a pine tree covered sandbar connecting two opposing coasts of Miyazu Bay. In Kyoto, we went around some fishing villages and ate seafood for pretty much every meal. We also went on a lake cruise where there were tons of seagulls, falcons and other birds swarming our boat for food. People bought these Cheeto-looking things to feed them.
