  • #TBT to Misty Mountain Adventures in Moganshan.

Moganshan, or Yellow Mountain, was established in the 1800’s and is said to be the Hamptons of Shanghai - where the city’s elite could escape the swampy summer heat. Swap mansions for stone castles and sandy beaches for tea plantations and a bamboo ocean and ... no I don’t see it 🤣 But it is a magical respite from bustling city life.

The history of Moganshan is pretty interesting. It’s been the stomping grounds of political leaders, foreign missionaries, Chinese gangsters and influential expats. During WWII it was used as a refugee camp, bombed by the Japanese and then taken over by the communist party which still controls most of the villas. It hasn’t quite recovered the luster of its past, but it is enchanting none-the-less.

China is an alluring, mystical and unforgiving land. I don’t miss living there but I am so grateful for moments like these with my little family.
