I had been to China dozens of times, but all on business trips.
Finally got a chance to do a Photo Trip travelling. :angel:

Need some advises to maximize the trip from 25th Aug to 2 Sep please.

I will be travelling very light. Using a Sony A7ii plus a 24-240 FE lens (with two 64G SD and three batteries)
I might carry with me a 35mm F2 and 15mm for night shots.
And a very light Manfrotto tripot.

1. Apart from the Gardens, which spot is best for night river photography?

1. Which spot is the best for the lake shoots?

1. Apart from the 外滩 东方明珠 , Shanghai appears to be a dense city. Anywhere else to recommend?

Thank you so much.

Just back last month from Hangzhou... visited West lake, too many tourist.
OK, got to know a local and he bring us to this spot high up. Quite rocky, enter from the backstreet of "Geling Road" along the way is up, many rock... you hit the top after around 15mins... no so tough.

Top of the hill can see the whole of westlake and half of the city. Go there in evening can catch sunset. When we was there meet up with 3-4 wedding couple... so is a scenic spots. Becareful, this is not a tourist spot.
