China Holiday 2010: Day 1: Shanghai arrival
In the plane to Shanghai, we quickly had a lunch which we could choose from an omolette or a noodle dish. I chose to have the noodle dish.
We arrived quite quickly and exited the plane.
This is our first glimpse of China outside the airport.
The entrance of the hotel. It looks really fancy!
We went on this holiday to Shanghai primarily to attend the SEANET amateur radio convention. It is a convention my dad attends every few years as he is a ham radio amateur operator. I also have a call sign VK6FTIM, although I don’t talk on the radio much.
After checking in, we left the hotel and headed to a shopping area where you could buy some ham radio parts, computers and so on.
Some photos I took while in the taxi.
We arrived at the radio and computer shops by taxi.
The stores in this area seemed to sell a lot of computer parts, audio equiptment, security cameras and so on. However the goods seemed to be used second hand goods, and there was a lot of people smoking indoors.
I did have my eyes on a couple of mini laptops but didn’t decide to get anything much. Instead, i did find a nice carry bag for my iPad.
We took a taxi back to the hotel so we could get some dinner.
After we got back, we took a walk outside the hotel to do some shopping at one of the closeby shopping malls.
We found this little restaurant on the way.
We ended up deciding to eat at the restaurant.
Dad bought us some soft drinks to drink.
