Yixing

Kyle and I took a trip to Yixing in Jiangsu province this last weekend. We had planned to get out-of-town to get away from the hectic start of the school year for Kyle and Shanghai life as well.

Yixing is a two and a half hour bus ride from Shanghai and as we live close to the main bus and train station it’s an easy out-of-town. In Yixing we thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. Le Meridian, which was next to a Wanda mall. Sarcasm aside I hadn’t had that much fun in a mall for quite some time. Although the exterior of the mall was all “fake” store fronts and a truly eerie China moment the actual mall was full of fun and games, such as a jungle gym, train, arcade, bowling and more. Of course, there was shopping too (my favorite!).
