Disappearing Old City Walking Tour
Laoximen — whose name means “Old West Gate” in Chinese — is one of the last vestiges of Shanghai’s pre-colonial past and is disappearing, which has over 400 years of history. This is the area where remains a historical layer of the neighborhood. Here, you can find Confucian Temple, 1920s Art Deco-style Shikumen, 1930s Japanese style houses combine, show you the different time background of Shanghai.
Unfortunately, many historic buildings in Laoximen that represent a piece of Shanghai’s past are being torn down by bulldozers to make way for more tall and shiny high-rises down the road. Let’s have a look at it before it’s gone!
