This silk museum is worth visiting if you are interested in this type of product or if you wish to purchase silk products. Otherwise nothing special.

The tour here was short yet informative. It was interesting to see real silk worms, the cocoons, and the overall silk making process. The real goal here is to sell silk products and they have some nice things. I picked up a king silk duvet...More

After a fast and very short explanation of silk, they took us to the retail store. The price was very reasonably. I checked the quilt if it is real silk inside, and it was. I was also sure that such a registered place would never...More

This waterfront area below the most famous section of
the Huangpu River has undergone multiple phases of
development that started when the Waterhouse Hotel
opened its doors. Though it’s been slower to catch on
than people expected, every year something new and
exciting opens up and gives people a reason to keep
calling the South Bund the "Next Big Thing." There are
