This is the Old Town chapter from Lonely Planet’s Shanghai guidebook.

Long a concoction of old-fashioned textures, tatty charm and musty temples, for glimpses of old Shànghǎi (that of the Chinese, not the foreigners), explore the surviving Old Town backstreets with their narrow, pinched and crowded lanes, dark alleys and overhanging laundry.

  • zone out from Shànghǎi’s urban modernity in the gorgeous Yùyuán Gardens & Bazaar Chinese gardens
  • maps
  • delve into traditional alleys and backstreets to uncover the city’s past on an Old Town walking tour
  • transport
  • learn about traditional tea culture while sipping a fragrant brew in an Old Shànghǎi Teahouse
  • restaurants & bars

Coverage includes: Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Shopping and Sports & Activities.
