The Hotel:

We stayed at the Puli Hotel + Spa, an urban designed sanctuary in the centre of the bustling city of Shanghai! I had never seen anything like it before. We stayed in the Junior suite which looked like an apartment in itself! The room boasted lots of space with a separate lounge, dining, + bathroom/vanity area. Everything about the hotel was fabulous!
The huge room divided up by huge sliding screens.

 His + Her sinks....i want this is my house now! :)
 The bath was lovely, you could lie there overlooking the city or watch the TV which was in the wall straight in-front of you.
 We had the most amazing view of the city + JingAn Park (which is slap bang right in the middle of the busy city) It was lovely to see the tranquil greenery + busy streets. The evening view was out-of-this-world with all the flashing lights + big lit up screens!

 The hotel send up a bottle of champagne when we arrived which was so lovely of them.
 Chocolate brownie in bed anyone...?
 Happy Birthday to me :)
This cake was gorgeous!
 The Puli hotel has the most amazing spa facilities named 'Anantara Spa'. This is where i had my treatments on my Birthday.
The hotel is also equipped with a gym, sauna, steam rooms, jacuzzi, and swimming pool. The pool was beautiful, so relaxing.

Sight Seeing...
The unbelievably huge Louis Vuitton store in Shanghai which sadly was still in construction, but check out the size of it compared to the tall street lamps!

Crazy window cleaners hanging from ropes! Seriously that has to be dangerous...

We had the view of this amazing temple from our hotel room!

The statues were so huge, it was a real experience visiting this beautiful place.

At the Ocean aquarium.

This trip was amazing + i will never forget it.
Back to the real world now :)
