This past Friday evening, I joined a friend for a city hike in Shanghai. We walked from Xu Jia Hui (outside of Gang Hui) to the Bund. That makes about 13 kilometers -- and my friend and I walked about 2 kilometers to get to Gang Hui in the first place. Here's the thing -- we did it in an hour and a half! That is fast walking. It was lots of fun, though, and we saw a good portion of downtown. The weather was great for it, too.
If you get a chance to join the hiking club for a downtown tour, they hike from the Xu Jia Hui area every Friday evening, around 7 pm. They usually end up around People's Square. It is fun, but make sure and get your walking shoes on. And be ready to move fast.
