CHINA Shanghai Suzhou Hangzhou


© 2004 Jan Shim Photography   [Gallery]

Between December 8 and 16, 2004 Freme Travel Services offered  me a travel assignment I just could not say no to! An opportunity to visit China for the very first time in Dec 2004 and the itinerary took me to Shanghai, Suzhou and Hangzhou. Our 9-day visit remained quite cold as we were at the end of autumn and Dec 22 marked the beginning of winter. It was reportedly snowing a week after we had returned to our tropical heat.

The photograph shown here may look familar to you. It’s not apparent at first but there is a running scene in Mission Impossible III shot in the streets of Shanghai, it occured to me that the shop houses featured in the scenes were from this very location.

Highlights of the trip:
Suzhou Silk Factory, Teapot Factory, World’s Largest Teapot “Dongpo Pot”, Louis Vuitton Building in Hangzhou, The Bund
