    Shanghai proves to be a surprisingly bike friendly city, especially at night when traffic is low. I felt safe and it was a great and fun way of seeing the city at night. My guide, May, was like an Energizer Bunny. She was extremely friendly and gave very good tips on great places where the locals eat. She also took very good photos for us. I also appreciate that she texted me a day prior to the tour to make sure that everything was fine. One of the highlights was definitely the night lights of the skyscrapers from the bund. She took us to a place where we had a great vantage point without the crowd. The tour also helps to give you an idea of night spots you may like to visit again the next days while you're still in Shanghai. Highly recommended and it was a super fun light workout as well.
