When we lived in Shanghai, change was always around us. If we left the city for a few days, we would come back to something new – another restaurant in our street, a building where a carpark used to be, all the houses repainted by the local government.

People’s lives spilled out into the alleyways.
The Hangzhou Bay Bridge reduced the driving distance between Shanghai and Ningbo by an hour and a half. At 37km long, its the longest ocean crossing bridge in the world and apparently an impressive engineering achievement.
When visiting Xiamen, we watched couples jostle for the best spots for their wedding photos.
