Shanghai, China will be my final travel video from my 2016 world tour. As I mentioned last week, this was my first time visiting China. You can see my Beijing video in a separate article.
Beijing is a much more historically rich city. Shanghai on the other hand, is much more modern and international. While in Shanghai, I learned of the city’s rich historical diversity. In the past there were multiple foreign areas including French, British and American. This gave me a whole new take on the diversity of China as a whole.
As you can imagine, China is huge! Therefore, the food is very diverse from region to region. Even though Beijing and Shanghai are not super far apart, the food is very different. In Shanghai it is a bit sweeter and they use more flour. In Beijing it’s a lot spicier! Pierre approves.
In 2017, I plan to return to China and really get a taste for what the rest of the country has to offer. You can look forward to that content coming next year!
