Farewell, Laoximen

Finished Sat, Jan 26, 2019 , 10am
Renaissance Shanghai Yu Garden Hotel
159 Henan Nan Lu, near Fuyou Lu


Join Historic Shanghai for one of their last tours of Laoximen, one of the last swathes of pre-Concession Shanghai - the area is slated for demolition after Chinese New Year. Most residents have moved out, but the buildings remain (for now), along with stories that stretch back generations. See the atmospheric winding lanes and alleys, the intricate carvings, the architectural surprises, the blending of east and west, the richly layered histories, before it disappears. The tour also takes in a thriving neighborhood that has been spared, one that is being renovated with the residents in place. RSVP: 150rmb for members, 250rmb otherwise.
