A special experience walking through once an abbotoir. It's was kinda creepy at some dark areas and it added tension when friends played hide-and-seek in it. now converted into many small iffices, wedding studios and restaurants. Managed to dine in a Russian restaurant. You may find weekend flea markets and lots of photography students getting inspirations at some corners.

A fascinating space that has been sensitively redeveloped. Looking around, it is hard to believe that this was once an abattoir, although the hints are there if you look closely enough (check out the ramps). This is a photographer's dream with lots of tricks of light, interesting architecture and things to look at.

in 1933 this place was a bull market, right now it is an interessant complex of bars, restaurants and shops. the stucture of the building is also really nice to see and getting "lost" in this building is an incredible architectural experience!

The architecture of this place is interesting and there is some nice small shops inside. It is always quite empty, so you have enough space to explore

This most extraordinary former slaughting house of the Art Deco period must have seen many changes around it while Shanghai developed since it was built .I'm sure it must be a European or American design as it has nothing within it that resembles Chinese design. It would be great to return to when it was being used as a working... More

very Gotham-like building that looks both eerie and stunning. It is perfect backdrop for photography. Now the building has been turned into lifestyle/shopping complex that houses cafe and such. A very interesting building.

An old slaughterhouse turned into a shopping/restaurant area - it's been well maintained and the architecture is very interesting. It's open until 10pm and great for some night time photography.

This place is really one out of the place building. Only in the european countries, I see buildings like that, not in asia. If you want to check out more places to go in shanghai, I have some over on my blog: http://www.spoiltbytes.com/2015/05/nice-places-to-visit-in-shanghai-9-days.html

Staying in Hongkou

Neighborhood Profile
Hongkou
History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood. Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can still be found in buildings and park monuments. Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without taking you too far away from the city center. Some of the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.
