I woke up around 530am. I packed my things and wrote down errands for M and the rest. 730 we left the house. Dropped by at StarBucks to buy some drinks and StarBucks Waffles to bring on the plane. 830am we were already at the airport.

A representative of China Panorama was there to assist their clients. Check In was fast as we did not bring any check in baggage. During check in we were informed that the flight would be leaving an hour later than scheduled!! (The plane that will be used will be coming from Incheon) After paying the terminal fee and clearing immigration we proceeded to gate 5 to wait for PR336. Boarding announced at 1145am. And departure at 1230. By 1210 they were not boarding yet. Boarding finally at 1215. Plane used was an A330-300. Plane departed at 1250.

Our tour guide was already there waiting for us. We waited for the other group members. At 455 we boarded the bus for downtown. We then went to Huang Family Cuisine for Dinner. The restaurant is located at the 4th floor of a hotel in downtown Shanghai.

After dinner we proceeded to the pier for the Huangpu River Cruise Tour. At 700pm we arrived at the pier. We waited for our guide Winnie to get the tickets. Our tour scheduled at 750pm so we waited 40minutes. The cruise tour ended 850pm.

When we went to the bus. The driver was saying something. It sounded like he was hurrying us up. It turned out that the area he was is a no stop area. The driver went down. I think the police was asking for his license. At 857pm we were on our way to the hotel. After checking in we went out to look for something to eat. Most of the shops were already closing. We were able to find a KFC which was open 24 Hours.
