Shanghai - West Shanghai (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

This is the West Shànghǎi chapter from Lonely Planet’s Shanghai guidebook.

West Shànghǎi (长宁、闵行、古北、虹桥) is far more a residential and business zone than a tourist drawcard, though that’s not to say you should immediately scratch it from your itinerary.

  • squeeze into the narrow alleyways of Qībǎo for flavours of traditional China
  • maps
  • take in a modern-art exhibit at the often overlooked Mínshēng Art Museum
  • transport
  • rock out at Yùyīntáng, one of Shànghǎi’s best gritty music venues
  • restaurants & bars

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