What You Can Expect
To balance the bustle of the modern city, your small group will seek solace in the Chenghuangmiao (Temple of the town God), the central shrine for Taoist worship in China. Dating back to 1403, the temple's main courtyard is still active with worshippers.
Then, switch gears with a visit to the historical French Concession. Founded in 1862 in southwest Shanghai as a result of the Treaty of Nanking, the Concession is a pleasant mix of wide tree-lined streets and European-styled architecture. Discover a gateway to the past as you follow your guide on a walk past the old shikumen-style townhouses, noted for their courtyard residences.
A very informed guide. Very easy rapport. Told us many interesting details about daily life in Shanghai
Could not be happier
We had a good guide but overall with it the rain the walking trip wasn't worth it and I wouldn't recommend it, far too expensive
