Christmas is coming... already?

I remember the trees getting all colorful last year around christmas in downtown Shanghai close to Huaihai road when I lived there, but I never saw them so bright this early. Guess it has to do with the golden week.


It's a street somewhere in the Zhabei district of Shanghai, near the "Circus World" Subway station of line 1. There is a huge area with new buildings that I never noticed before, looks a bit like the new bar area in the french consession area.


There's beautiful crazy modern buildings, bars, restaurants and yet-to-be-opened shops. Worth a look if you are planning on buying an apartment... ;)
