On a recent visit to Shanghai in China I took the opportunity to visit an area I had not yet had the chance to explore well at the center of old colonial Shanghai near the Fuxing park.
I started off with the park, with some great people watching, continued to the nearby commercial area and various attractions like the Sun Yat-Sen former residence with an exhibition on his life. From there I headed west to the embassy area with lots of old buildings by poets and artists turned either museums or nice tourist areas.
A great area to spend half a day in Shanghai and explore some of it’s former colonial glory and the Chinese thinkers and artists that lived at the beginning of the 20th century.
