In celebration of Nanjing Road’s brand new pedestrian walkway (official opening on September 12), Historic Shanghai is talking a walk through the history of the "Great Horse Road," from its beginning in Shanghai’s earliest days on the waterfront, as it grew and prospered through the years. You'll see the grand old department stores and hotels — including a private tour of the historic secrets of the Fairmont Peace Hotel — as well as what lies behind: sprawling, forgotten buildings with their own tales, tiny powerful temples, the remnants of the racecourse — and the future of this legendary road. To book and confirm meeting point: email@example.com. 150rmb for members, or 250rmb for nonmembers.
