  • A special place, a lot of food and old alleys. Gives a sense of what the old Shanghai looked like. Go there with an open mind. If you have only a few days to spend, I think you should give them the real Shanghai

  • I had the opportunity to stay in this city for 5 days, where I could breathe fresh air and rest. The alleys near the canals are filled with all sorts of shops and restaurants. Next to the bridge there is a Starbucks with a terrace overlooking the river, where people can relax while they drink their favorite drink. There is also a more modern area, where there are several fast-food restaurants, convenience stores and supermarkets.
