The neighborhood along the river to the approach to the Old Millfun is a do not miss as well. I noticed these old Shanghai neighborhoods from the metro, and was delighted to see an area that looks like it might escape development and be preserved...More
if you dig brutalist architecture, this is a great find. It isn't very crowded, and it is a delight to explore. Its got a great blade-runner feel, and the exterior concrete veneer is geometrically perfect.
Imagine a former slaughterhouse transformed into a maze of small shops, with raw concrete everywhere, in a complex setting where you walk up and down stairs, exploring one small alley after another - all just steps away from the Bund - Shanghai's most famous place....More
An architectural wonder restored and transformed into a commercial and retail space, this former slaughterhouse is full of little touches meant to make the journey for the cattle and pigs as least traumatic as possible.
If you are in the neighborhood, this place is worth a visit. The architecture is unique and you can definitely get some interesting black and white photographs if you are into that sort of thing.
Also worth going if you’ve always wanted to be an...More
This is such a great place to spend your afternoon away, you can drink coffee, get a cake from cafe or indulge in photo taking with your friends. 1933 is so instagrammable, it’s so vintage and every corner is unique.
Visit during the weekday's for the best experience, but an interesting place to visit and walk around. Initially can feel like you are in a horror movie, with all the weird angles, tight staircases, and maze like feel - but this is soon replaced for...More
History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood. Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can still be found in buildings and park monuments. Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without taking you too far away from the city center. Some of
the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.
You might look for it on expat's events. I went there twice the first one it was at night and it was a private event from my company, so it might be something going on organized by an expatriates association
