SHANGHAI DAY 1 - VISITING SHANGHAI HISTORY MUSEUM

Five excited tourists and one excited tourist guide went into Shanghai History Museum to see Shanghai in the past. Shanghai has developed from an agricultural land in the past century into one of the busiest metropolitan cities of the world today before being colonized by the British at one time, and everything was vividly depicted in the exhibits found in the galleries.






From here, people who wish to go up the Oriental Pearl Tower will have to take the elevator while the museum visitors will walk down the stairs.

They also had very sweet staff dressed in red to welcome the visitors at the entrance of the building. I don't mind going back to the museum again.

Every time when I visit a museum abroad, I always wonder when are we going to have a world-class museum in our country.
