Overview

When you look at modern Shanghai, its hard to imagine anything but a modern metropolis. If you look carefully, you can still find remnants of Shanghais past.

Know More about this tour

Taking a walk along whats left of the citys old defensive walls gives you an insight into the history of one of Chinas biggest cities. During the Ming Dynasty (16th century), Shanghai put up thick stone walls to protect its people from invading Japanese pirates. It covers 3 miles (4.8 kilometers), in a roughly circular shape with six gates and four water entrances.

During this 2hrs walking tour with the expert guide Janny Chyn, you will learn about the fascinating stories of the founding families and how the city wall was built, explore the only remaining gate of the wall - Dajing Tower which has a Taoist Temple and a small museum detailing the history of Old Shanghai. Then taking the local bus, you will have a chance to go back in time and circumnavigate the old wall in a comfortable way.

In the end, you will visit the only extant Confucian Temple in Shanghai, a peaceful and calming place for an introduction to the Confucius culture.
