Tea Funny is a tiny café that you might have just walked right past if it weren’t for the trailing line outside of it. We dropped by to see what all the fuss is about.
The shop’s interior combines bright colors and Zen elements, creating a unique space to enjoy some caffeine or an afternoon snack.
The menu is pretty funky and has a lot of cool choices. Drinks include a Thai-tea style take on a classic coffee and mulled wine mixed with tea.
When it comes to desserts, you might be surprised by what you find. There’s a cream puff designed to resemble a certain former US president, a cake shaped like a gray rain cloud, and even a blue and white medicine capsule cake.
One of the highlights here are the cookie cups. They’re delicious and great for the environment, since you’ll be able to bite right into your cup after you’ve finished your milk tea. We went with the 🍵 matcha flavored cup 🍵 but there are three flavors to choose from.
The café’s staff are super friendly and happy to make recommendations based your preferences. Stop by if you’re in the area. This café can get packed on the weekends (like most of the shops on Yongkang Road), so try to visit during the week if you have the chance.

🍦 Soft serve 🍦 is king here, with lots of flavors and styles of cones to choose from. While we went for the coffee flavored soft serve, other flavors include peach, chocolate, milk, and more.
When it comes to ice cream shops, the service here is pretty top notch. Each cone comes with an extra cup, spoon, and wet napkin, ensuring you’ll have a way to handle any potential drips of melting ice cream.

If you like jumping this is the place to be when you are in Yiwu. It is so much fun to jump around with friends and family. You can also swim on an ocean of balls and square foams. You can also slide down really fast on their slider area. There is also a basketball area where you can dunk as much as you want. The regular trampoline is also fun when you jump and do some actions when you are in the air.

Kana de Guchi
Lugu Lake (泸沽湖）
it was a far way to arrive there from Lijiang ancient town. I only remembered I was sleeping all way through, but every time I woke up, we hadn’t arrived🥲 climbed 5 mountains, took 4 hours, we finally arrived Lugu Lake!
on the way to Lugu Lake, we can see Jinsha River(金沙江). Love this turquoise green!
Lugu Lake viewing platform. There was super crowded, I went on the workdays, couldn’t imagine if it is in weekends or holiday... but the most disappointing thing is, there’s a row of trees blocking the view! Very difficult to shoot nice pictures there. So if you are driving on this trip, wouldn’t recommend you to go there to see the view. You can definitely stop by somewhere to get the better views.
Boat tour in Lugu Lake. it took around 1 hour to finish the trip. Water is very clean and clear, many birds were following us for food
Beach of Lugu Lake, in the morning
another side of the Lake.
if you want to stay in the hotel near by the Lake, it is not necessary to book the Lake view rooms. You won’t get a nice view from room, pointless to waste money.
Today we visited the award-winning Kathleen's Waitan as part of China Restaurant Week. Once rated as a "Best-View Restaurant" by "City Weekend," Kathleen's new location Waima Road features a stunning 270-degree view of the Huangpu River and Lujiazui. On a sunny day, this is an amazing place to enjoy a tasty meal with friends.
🖼️ Environment 🖼️
After taking the elevator to the 5th floor, you're greeted by several spacious dining areas. Large windows provide a panoramic view of the river. Better yet, walk up one floor to the open-air terrace where the view is nothing short of jaw-dropping.
🍽️ Recommended Dishes 🍽️
We don't normally recommend the bread, but Kathleen's was so fresh and tasty we ordered a second helping. Add a little butter for a delightful pre-appetizer snack.
🥗 Iberian Ham Salad 🥗
Iberian ham is shaved thin and served over fresh greens, cantaloupe slices, grated parmesan cheese, and a balsamic vinaigrette.
🥩 Prime Rib Steak 🥩
We ordered ours on the rare side and it didn't disappoint! The meat was tender and flavorful.
🍰 Napoleon Cake 🍰
Served with fresh strawberries, we very much wanted more of this one!

Micang Pop is a cute dessert café located near the bustling Middle Huaihai Road. After dinner, stopped by for some sweat treats and to check out the location.
Even at 8 PM, the shop was still pretty full. The best seats are the ones at the window – they’re perfect for people watching or having a chat with a friend.
The menu has all of the café classics, plus some interesting standouts. We especially liked the unique red date rooibos latte and the rich flavor of the honey latte.
For desserts, one of the café’s most popular choices is the soufflé, which takes around half an hour to prepare. Consider trying the crème brulee or pancakes covered with caramel, bananas, and hazelnuts, though needless to say it’s a bit on the heavy side.
Don’t miss out on the toasted marshmallow ice cream, which features a giant, slightly charred ice cream marshmallow on a stick that took us back to eating s’mores (minus the chocolate and graham crackers) around the campfire.
This café frequently comes out with seasonal menus around the holidays, so be sure to check back often.

In Dough We Trust is a small shop that’s very easy to find. With large windows and views of the street, there’s a long bench outside of the shop that’s often filled with people waiting for their turn to enter.
The interior is cozy and makes you feel as if you’ve taken a step into Amsterdam. There are probably enough tables and chairs for five to six people inside, in addition to some extra seats at the bar.
If you’d like to sit inside and are willing to wait, the owner will take down your phone number and give you a call when a space opens up. This’ll give you some time to explore the other shops nearby. Perhaps the most popular item at In Dough We Trust is the tiramisu, which has an excellent balance of bitter cocoa and sweet cream. It’s not too rich and is the perfect accompaniment to any drink.
We also recommend the red velvet cake, mulled wine, and brewed passionfruit, a drink we haven’t really seen anywhere else. In Dough We Trust is a neat hangout place and great for couples.
