Shanghai by night

Our study group was spontaneously asked whether we would like to go on a boat trip to see Shanghai by night. Naturally we agreed, little knowing that you should book in advance to spare yourself 2 – 3 hours of waiting in the ticket line. Be it as it was, we boarded the ship with many other tourists.

There were drinks, but no seats. All the tourists ran from one side to the other to take the best possible snapshots and it was almost impossible to reach the front row or find something to stand on to get a better view. Still we enjoyed the ride very much!

After Shanghai we flew to Yichang to embark on a larger ship through the Three Gorges Dam. We had to pass several locks to go up the river Yangtse. We also visited a town and a cloister that had been relocated.
