Shanghai Vlog ✨ Vacationing in our new city with the kids! Hotel stay, Yu Garden & the Bund

Come along with my family as we have a little staycation here in Shanghai! We go to the Yu Gardens to see the lanterns and lights for the CNY festival, we also meet a cute little robot and as always find a new cozy cafe.
Till next week!
