Shanghai Old Town Classic Walking Tour
Time & Location
About the Event
Step into the pages of history and discover the secrets and story of the first grand family's compound in Shanghai. Long before the foreign concessions and the skyscrapers, Shanghai was a prosperous Chinese town surrounded by protective walls and bustling with trade and commerce. This tour takes you back in time to see Shanghai’s ancient past, including the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644AD) Yuyuan Garden and Taoist City God Temple. We will wander in the old town of Shanghai, learn about the local religious practice, get a sense of traditional Chinese architecture, and visit old residential houses (lilongs) in lanes. By the end of the tour, you will also learn about different kinds of local dumplings (a chance for you to buy and taste some great Chinese food).
