DAY TRIP: Soong Family and Chuansha
Time & Location
About the Event
Chuansha Town has a history of more than 400 years and is known as the "culture root" on the Pudong side of Shanghai. On this tour, we will visit Neishidi Residence in Chuansha Town, the former home of the Soong family. Historical records show that Soon Ching-ling, Soong Tzu-wen, and Soong Mei-ling were born in Chuansha after their father returned from missionary work in 1890. Neishidi Residence was also the former residence of scores of renowned Chinese figures. We will also visit Nanshi Street which is filled with time-honored shops selling local folk crafts and antiques. At the end of this tour, we will also visit the Soong Qing-ling Memorial Residence on Middle Huaihai Road.
