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

Impressive old Art Deco building. If you are only a little bit interested in architecture, then you definitively have to see this building. The shops and restaurants located within are not very exciting but for the architecture alone it's worth a trip to 1933.

Subway Line 4 and get off at Hailun Lu Station. 10-15 minutes walk. There are many construction going on. Best is to ask the locals. You need to walk over a bridge. Entrance free. Toilet very nice. Take the Lift to highest floor. Enjoy your coffee and cakes downstairs where there were a lot of stuff toys at every sofa.... More

I wandered through this spot on a cold Sunday. Staying at a near by hotel I was hoping to get something to eat. At this point options are few. Mainly coffee shop food which in most cases I can live without in China. I was however left wish I had brought my photography equipment and chose a rare day with... More

This building is a must visit if you're putting together your own Shanghai architecture tour. We arrived late morning on a weekday and though there are a number of shops and eateries it was not crowded and most people were there to see the building. The easiest way to visit is to take one of the elevators to the top... More

It's a old slaughter house built in 1933 which is designed by a British designer. It's one of the few buildings in Shanghai with such good design that is preserved so well from that time. You can still have a walk on the roads that was previously used for shipping cattle. Now it has offices for creative industry, two wonderful... More

I've seen some bad reviews, but I loved the place. It's a little bit pricey as far as Shanghai goes, but I would go at least once a month for dinner with friends while I was living in Shanghai. Walking through the structure it really is easy to get lost, but certainly a lot of fun. I swear, the most... More

It used to be old (and still is) but there's life in this old place. There's some trendy shop in this shopping maze, which still feels like a slaughter house to me. Only this time, they aim for our wallets.
