Day 4 – 12/23

Today marked the last full day in Shanghai and mainland China on our trip. We began the day with a late morning breakfast and check-in at the hotel and then swiftly travelled to Jing’an Temple by subway. At the temple we explored the wonders of beautiful architecture and Buddhism. After our walk around the temple, we had plenty of free time for stipend lunches and time to wander the great malls, shops, and markets surrounding the temple. Then we took the subway and walked back to the hotel, where we had a bit of reflection time about our experience in Shanghai and Suzhou. For dinner we had a variety of Chinese styled burgers and buns delivered to the hotel to eat. After dinner, we went up to our rooms to pack and get some much needed rest for our flight to Taiwan.
