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

Unless you need to take some pictures or you’re into architecture, you only need one hour there. There are a few stores in this interesting place (featured in a few movies) but the main attraction is the building itself.

As previous reviewers have mentioned, this is an ex-abbatoir designed by an English architect and completed in 1933, hence the name. The design is interesting, an opportunity to get some great photos, although as usual light plays a big role and you need a lot of help from the sun to get the best out of this place - overcast...

this slaugterhouse turn shopping center is an interesting maze like piece of architecture with a rectangular outer block encasing an inner circular central block. Cattles used to walk through its corridors to the central slaughterhouse. The entire area has an industrial ambience that reminds shoppers of its unique past. However, stepping into the shopping center i felt a bit lost... More
