Shanghai - the places where a local goes

Went to shanghai and decided to explore the town as a weekend local - meaning the places locals go on the weekends for chill-lax. Totally awesome! Specially for those who goes to shanghai really often and am tired of all the shopping and all the tourist places and doesn't have time to move on to Suzhou or hangzhou. 

Jingan sculpture park 

1. Out of station turn right straight Turn left along Shimenerlu and you will see this
 It's fantastic. If you have 3G there yo can scan the qr code and find out more about the interpretations of the art pieces 

 And the flowers are so pretty 

Next to inspire my left brain 
M50 art street

2. M50 Zhong tan lu exit 5 or 6 walk straight all the way  u see a bridge and graffiti just follow 

You'll see this after turning the corners 

The atmosphere is fantastic for painting
And if you don't have your own paint and easels there's studio classes which you can join 

Oh yes, the best thing about this place is you can also make your own rings. 
Look at this example! So nice! 
You can bring your own drawing to crave or they have samples - the helpers there will guide you. It's reasonable price. 
For the rings below, you need to buy at least 6 packs of material which will come up to around 

Also checking out what's happening in shanghai that weekend, saw that a flea market was happening in da xue lu so I made my way there. 

Was very disappointed though. After so much walking and finding, to realise it's a very small flea and the items sold were nothing unique. 

But this place is a great area to chill with the many coffee and dessert shops. 

Been to shanghai many many times and this wkend was the best :)
