While visiting Shanghai, join this tour of 50 Moganshan Road, or M50, and witness incredible works of art by Shanghais talented contemporary artists.

With your enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, tour the large complex -- a maze of workshops and galleries housed in a series of buildings -- and admire a variety of artwork including graffiti, photography, paintings, sculptures, furniture and more.

Visit several established art galleries like Eastlink, housing several of the citys most controversial exhibitions, and BizArt, a non-profit foundation promoting the work of young artists.

  • We met Janny at M50, we had an interesting afternoon strolling around the galleries. Janny was very friendly and made the visit enjoyable. If we had not done this tour I think we would have trouble locating this area and all the galleries inside. An enjoyable afternoon.

  • Excellent guide. Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the tour. Extremely interesting art work. Definitely recommend tour.
