After our cycle tour we went back to the hotel & got our bags and got the Metro to our 1st overnight train to Shanghai! Due to a mix up on our tour we were 1st class! Its very very wierd to sleep on a train in a bed. There were 4 bunks to a compartement and it was pretty good and clean but felt a bit like a rollercoaster ride. The journey took 10 hours to get 2 Shanghai.
Once we arrived we got taxi's to our next hotel...then went for an orientation walk around Shanghai. We liked it much better than we thought we would all of the wierd and wonderful buildings everywhere and we walked around for a few hours.
Later that evening we went to see the Shanghai Acrobats which are famous. They were really good and talented but the venue was a bit wierd like a school hall. At the end they had 4 ppl on motorbikes all riding around in this tiny cage thing on stage it was so good! I was really tired from the long journey and was fighting 2 stay awake for the whole show!!!
The next morning we got up and went to the Shanghai Museum which was good if you liked museums! It was interesting but we didn't really have that much time there as we had to get back and pack our stuff for our next overnight train to Xi'an!
