Visit Chenghuangmiao the Oldest Heart of Shanghai

| December 9, 2008

Chenghuangmiao Shanghai 1

Shanghai, which is very well known with nick of the Oriental Paris, is the largest commerical and financial centre of China, and the eighth largest city in the world and one of the world’s busiest port. It isn’t an ancient Chinese city with loads of historic temples and ruins to visit; it’s a young new city more akin to Hong Kong. (Suddenly I remembered some film called Shanghai Noon, featured infamous actor of Jackie Chan)

After a few hours of night flight from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), straightaway, we visited Chenghuangmiao (城隍庙), a temple in the old city of Shanghai, China. It is a Chinese traditional shopping area and the oldest city area in Shanghai.

The very famous restaurant selling “Xiao Long Bao” (小笼包), a dumpling that contains soup. We had no chance to try this on a tight schedule, as the queue was very long. Plus since it is no Halal, we just snapped a picture for memory. They said it is really famous. You should try it. Ya’know China popular with its exotic food. 😀

MOST POPULAR IN THIS MONTH !!!
