While in Shanghai we spent our first night on a boat tour of Shanghai. I am so happy that it was dark out when we were on the boat because I can not believe how amazing the city looked with all the buildings lit up. It was amazing and absolutely beautiful. Shanghai is a city that I am so happy that I was able to see it. The size, location, and the architecture alone were mind boggling as we sat on a boat and stared. I really have enjoyed the architecture throughout our travels of China. The time and effort that is put into buildings is evident and appreciated. The beauty of these building were awe worthy. The next day we visited the Observatory. What a difference this vocal point had on my perspective of Chinese architecture. The attention to detail was apparent the second we entered the building. The employees dress and greetings were done in a way to create a respectful image of the building. The elevator ride was so high-tech and again attention to detail with the color and the music light show on the ceiling and walls. The view from the top floor was spectacular and they even had a parts of the floor made of glass so that we could look down and really get a sense of how high up we were. The finally aspect of this building that surprised me was the bathrooms. High tech is not enough to describe those toilets. I cannot believe that this bathroom existed if I had not seen it for myself. Shanghai definitely impressed me.
