Yayoi Kusama exhibition was THE thing in Shanghai, mainly because of the colorful spots. I think that the original idea was putting the spots on the wall (so everyone would take part in creating the art) but people figured out very quickly that why put it on the wall when you can actually put it on yourself and then Instagram it? So if you would go to People’s Square Park you would see people with colorful spots all over. We visited the exhibition the very last day and the lines were crazy (welcome to China) so unfortunately we didn’t get a picture with the famous spots.
But what I did get a picture of was marriage market. Yes, there is a place in a middle of People’s Square Park where parents are playing matchmakers. There are announcements everywhere telling you all the important things you need to know about your future wife/ husband like height or age. Beside that at this time of the year the park is full of pretty blooming trees, you can also watch people playing chees by the lake or go to the little amusement park. So whenever you’re in Shanghai People’s Square Park is definitely a place to see.
