Travel Recommendation: Beautiful Tianzifang Neighborhood in Shanghai

The next time you visit Shanghai, go see the lovely neighborhood of Tianzifang 田子坊 in Pudong.  Located at 210 Taikang Road (泰康路210弄) and Dapuqiao Metro Stop.  There are many cute shops and cafes where you can spend the morning or afternoon.  See local artists, meet people, enjoy a drink and a snack.  Here is one special shop - Deng's Paper Cutting.  Maybe a little expensive, but you can look at the beautiful examples and choose something in a peaceful environment.

Travel Recommendation: Mexican Restaurant in Seoul

Try this nice Mexican restaurant in the Jongno neighborhood.  If Mexican food is not what you're looking for, this is surrounded by many other restaurants for quite a few blocks.  Walking distance to Itaewon too.
