Welcomed by amazing weather on my arrival to Shanghai. The city has some fasinating architecture. I am in Shanghai for the 2013 China Furniture Fare…

As a creative Director and interior designer I always look for inspiration where ever I go….

In the evening I went to a Local Fusion Chinese Restaurant…..

This is very typical for Shanghai and a lot of expats go here. The food is amazing and with the tasty fish one enjoys some great green tea.

Shanghai is different to other cities in China in that you have the older architecture right next to some really modern building
