i walk everyday to the office now. about 3.5 km and take me about 45 minute. it’s a long walk, but the weather is cool (with rain and wind sometimes) and shanghai has big pavement for walking. it’s just great to be able to walk here. in jakarta, i almost never walk.
i pass a lot of parks. they’re big and clean. and the surroundings are old and new building side by side together.
i work overtime everyday so returning from the office, i usually just take taxi. this city is very safe. safer than in singapore. i just can walk alone in the middle of the night to get taxi. and unlike jakarta and singapore, available taxi is not hard to find. most taxi drivers don’t speak english so i always have my destination address written in chinese.
