    The Lantern Festival in Town God's Temple every year is a traditional program. It's very lively. He receives tickets at night. Colorful lanterns are very beautiful, and there are lots of snacks and snacks here. They are also very close to Nanjing East Road and Bund. But we should pay attention to the large number of people in Jiuquqiao. I see that there are several themes in the lanterns here every year. They are basically eight immortals or traditional myths. If you haven't been here, let't come to see them now. But if you take photos, you must use them well. A little camera.

    Because it came too late, Town God's Temple was closed, shopping in the streets, the commercial atmosphere was too strong, everywhere were selling scarves and snow cream, snacks were all done well on the steam rack to keep warm, the surface was a bit dry, not delicious in the tea restaurant, the price was also small and expensive. Maybe the difference of eating habits was not very appetites. The waiter of Ningbo soup dumpling was too aggressive and a group of people together. After taking photos and chatting, when the snacks were all finished, they did not give them dumplings. They asked only to wait. Later, their husbands and so on were annoyed to find their theory. Only then did they find out that they did not order the back cook! Because the weather is not very good, the night scene is more beautiful than the daytime pictures. It's OK to take the subway to sit on the Yu Garden. The road sign is clear at the intersection, and it will not take the wrong road according to the direction. We took a 3 yuan fare from the old Simon, and when we got back, it was full of rice cakes, Xiaolong Bao and tangyuan. It took about 15 minutes to walk back. ^ ^

    Located in the northeastern part of the old city chamber of Shanghai "Old City God Temple Tourist Spot" is the most seasonal place in Shanghai during the Spring Festival. Metro Line 10 Yu Garden station is on foot. Look at the Town God's Temple central square, which is decorated with 1: lanterns and colorful lanterns. "the Lantern Festival will be the theme of the new era. Good life" is the theme. The Central Plaza is the theme of the beautiful Plaza. The Central Plaza has a golden lantern theme lantern of up to nine meters. There are gourd lights on the Golden Square. In addition, small commodities, local products and specialty commodities market in a row, a variety of snack stalls, Department stores, juggling stalls, tourists in the door. The special snacks in Green Wave Corridor, vegetable bags in Songyue Tower, eight treasure rice in Songyun Tower, Nanxiang Cage and wine-making round Zi have become the snacks that tourists must buy here. Point of View 2 - "Nine-Bend Bridge - "Chinese Culture Spiritual Home" is the theme. The lotus pond is filled with all kinds of colorful lights, but due to the excessive current restriction safety considerations of tourists, they have to take the snake-shaped passage and walk one-way. Look at the 3: Yu Garden - the gap between the Yu Garden and the nine curved bridge is 40 yuan. The typical Jiangnan classical gardens are covered with ancient trees, pavilions, rockery ponds, and the environment is relatively quiet. Look at the 4: bookstore, which is filled with literary and artistic flavour, the warlord tower, "the antique market on the ground floor, the folk custom gallery on the first floor, the art gallery, the two floor, the Shanghai little school yard exhibition and the teahouse in the Yu Garden art space.

    Town God's Temple is regarded as a landmark shopping area in Shanghai. If you come to Shanghai and do not go to Town God's Temple, your partners will be surprised. Walking in Town God's Temple is a good feeling. The food is attractive, but I prefer to buy it in a formal shopping mall. The style of Architecture is my favorite classical building.

    In the Spring Festival, the annual flavor of Town God's Temple displays the Lantern Festival and temple fairs in the year of the Spring Festival, and the flow of the crowds slowly takes a look at the antique scenery. Sometimes the vivid dog shapes and the rich food make people forget about it. This is not only a tourist attraction for tourists from other places, but also a good place for the local people to enjoy the taste of Shanghai. Cage delicious traditional delicacies, wonderful and rich activities here can feel the passion and characteristics from Shanghai.
