La Tour Road: A Story of Gangsters, Lane Houses, and Secret Gardens
Time & Location
About the Event
Join Janny Chyn from Shanghai Pathways for an authentic experience to discover Shanghai’s lesser-known parts of the Former French Concession. It’s a place set apart from the modernity of the rest of the city with tree-lined streets that inspire lingering strolls. We’ll go in search of preserved mansions, churches, Art Deco lane houses, and secret gardens, and uncover the stories behind the buildings and the people who lived there. We will also learn about how the foreign concessions came to exist in Shanghai and get to know some colorful characters that made their fortunes here.
