Farewell, Laoximen

Finished Sat, Dec 15, 2018 , 10am
Renaissance Shanghai Yu Garden Hotel
159 Henan Nan Lu, near Fuyou Lu


It's been a year since the final push began to move all the families out of one of the last swathes of pre-Concession Shanghai. Now word is that everyone must move out by Chinese New Year, so the demolition can begin. But the buildings remain for now, so come for a last look at what we'll miss most: the atmospheric winding lanes and alleys, the intricate carvings, the architectural surprises, the blending of east and west, the richly layered histories, before it all disappears. RSVP to book and for meeting point: 250rmb.
