Walk: Old Hongkou

Finished Sat, Sep 14, 2019 , 10am
Broadway Mansions
20 Suzhou Bei Lu, near Dongdaming Lu


Old Hongkou was a wild tapestry of contrasts, and the site some of Shanghai’s defining historical moments. Yet it remains little known and explored – and it’s being flattened at a rapid rate. Join us for Victorian architecture, missionaries, revolutionaries, red light districts, Japanese Buddhist temples, Shanghai lane neighborhoods, American churches, and some of the International Settlement’s most impressive urban planning feats – before these, too, vanish. RSVP to book and for meeting point: 150rmb members, 250rmb nonmembers.
