After our flight to Istanbul, we had a flight to Shanghai! This was about a 10 hour flight and after we were done with the first flight, we were unsure how ‘nice’ the plane would be.
We were pleasantly surprised as we got onto the plane and it was lovely! A decent amount of leg room and also a large screen each with a plethora of films, music choices & TV Shows! We had 2 meals. We had a pasta dish with veg, a bread roll and other things. On both flights Curtis had a free whisky and Kim had wine & Coca Cola!
Our second meal was at breakfast near when we landed, which local time was actually around 14:00!
It wasn’t the best, to be honest, but the egg was egg flavour…
We got off the plane and headed to the 144 hour transit visa area and it was pretty simple. We got our visa and were on our way into China!
We were very hungry, so once we grabbed our bags we headed right to the hotel. We had to get on a high speed train (300 Kph) followed by a VERY FULL metro ride to People’s Square. It is incredibly hot and humid here. It is currently around 23:00 and it is 33°C, with a lot of humidity.
So far, Shanghai looks awesome! Once we got to our hotel we had a shower and went out for food. We found a noodle place and ate some incredible braised beef with noodles and spring rolls, all for just £8!! Our drinks ( a Sprite and Cola-Cola) were just £0.30 each!
Photos will not be able to be uploaded to anywhere until we leave here, which is the 25th.
