Laoximen at Chinese New Year

Finished Tue, Jan 28, 2020 , 2pm
Renaissance Shanghai Yu Garden Hotel
159 Henan Nan Lu, near Fuyou Lu


Is this Laoximen’s final Spring Festival? Two years since the final push to move all the families out we’ll explore one of the last swathes of pre-Concession Shanghai. With many residents gone now, Laoximen is a different world, yet one that is surprisingly alive, and one whose buildings and stories remain. We don’t know how much longer this will be the case, so come for a last look at 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: 250rmb for non-members.
