Laoximen - A Last Look

Finished Sun, Aug 4, 2019 , 10am
Renaissance Shanghai Yu Garden Hotel
159 Henan Nan Lu, near Fuyou Lu


There's a surprising amount of life, and residents remaining, in Laoximen - and certainly, the buildings and the stories of this old Chinese city enclave remain, as this fascinating slice of old Shanghai readies for its final act. Come and see one of the last swathes of pre-Concession Shanghai, hear the stories that stretch back generations – some from the neighbors who remain - 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: 150rmb for members, 250rmb for nonmembers.
