spent just two days in Shanghai, where we rode a magnetic levitation
train from the airport to the city. It reached a speed of 430 km per
hour and only took 8 minutes. Later we went to the top of the 5th
tallest building in the world (Jin Mao Tower) for a view over Shanghai.
We walked on the Bund along the river, and got harassed by a persistent
postcard seller and every beggar. We also visited the Shanghai Museum
and walked along the famous Nanjing road.

One of the highlights of Shanghai was going up in the
Jin Mao tower to the 88th floor. The building is the tallest in
Shanghai and and the 5th tallest in the world at 1,380 feet.
