IMG_6669The Waterhouse at South Bund, Shanghai

“The City gets lit up after the Sunset” was the opening line of Continental air’s promotional short film  for Shanghai shortly before the landing today.  Full of business men on board, the Continental Air Jet was also as just as new as those skyline of rising Shanghai. Along the rapidly growing China’s economy, Gap has opened up 3 beautiful brand new stores now in China and here I am with Cynthia to visit Gap stores and learn about what people and life of Shanghai is all about!  The culture, what they like to eat and wear, people adopting the new life of one of the fastest growing cities in the world!  

And here let’s start with one of the best new design Shanghai is proud of : the Waterhouse.

IMG_6675Once a wear house space back in 1930′s has completely have re born as a swanky new modern boutique hotel by doing a quite a good job preserving most part of facade from then. Industrial cool, rustic historic charm and great portion use of wood and glass gives that cutting edge yet delivers cozy Modernism of Today.
