When I first visited Shanghai back in 2009 I was blown away. Making sense of this city can be a daunting process. There's so much to see and do that at first it can seem like an overwhelming task.
Luckily while I was in Shanghai with my family we were fortunate to have our own personal tour guide, my sister-in-law, Stephanie FitzGerald-Smith. I'd have to admit that without Stephanie we would have been a bit lost. Having someone who can haggle with the locals, take us to the right markets and recommend where to eat was worth its weight gold.
