Zip Through Shanghai with Hackwriters

My travel story about Shanghai was published on in the British online magazine Hackwriters.

Hackwriters, an online portfolio of good writing, has been digitally archived in the British Library since it began in 1999 and has been affiliated with Falmouth University and University of Portsmouth before becoming independent.

“The sheer density of Shanghai sort of hits you in the face as you drive into it. Some say the city is literally sinking under the weight of it own development. It’s also said that half of the construction cranes working in the world are in China—and most of them are right here in Shanghai.”

The story covers Yu Gardens and Bazaar, Huxinting Tea House, the Bundt and Pudong, a trip on the world’s only magnetically levitating train, a look at some of the tallest buildings in the world, and more. Shanghai doesn’t slow down, and neither does this story.
