Although not unpleasant, I think there are many more authentic places to take a stroll in Shanghai that are also a lot closer to the typical tourist path. A highlight, however, was the Christian Church which was built with buddhist temple details in the architecture. This made it worth it for me--so unique and beautiful. There are friendly volunteers inside... More

My review: Location - Duolun Road. Getting there, take Subway line # 3, metro station Dongbaoxing Rd. Walk for 10-15 minutes from subway station to Duolun Road (on your left side). This is a renovated quarter of 2-3 streets which used to be the area were famous poets, writers and generals (affiliated with Shan-Kai-Shek?) lived. It has lots of lovely... More

Duolun Lu is an almost complete restored street from the 1920-30 era. It is (almost) car free and I would guess, about 1/2 mile long. With all the nice buildings, nice small shops and cafes it is a gem in Shanghai. It is still somewhat undiscovered and thus quite and you do not see too many tourists. And if you... More

Duolun, famous cultural street person, a street that has become established there by the Society for writers and artists known (is no longer). A number of buildings have been extensively restored, perhaps too good. In the car-free street are some beautiful bronze statues of famous Chinese writers/poets, like Shen Yimo, Guo Moruo and Ding Ling. There is also a Christian... More

Great little gem for an afternoon exploration. Statues of the leftist writers from the 1920s and 1930s line the pedestrian street. Little cafes, including the charming Old Film Café. One gets the feel of literary life in Shanghai during this period.

Nice for a stroll around, antique type shops, a few nice cafes and so on, lots of photo opportunities. Found it easier to take Metro to the Hongkou Stadium and walk down from there. Walking distance to Lu Xun park and surrounding area so could combine both in same day, but a lot of walking.

I lived in an apartment in this area long before the change. At that time, I used to hear the "old timers" spin yarns nightly about how Duolun Road was back in the day, back in the Roaring 20s and the turbulent 30s. Now the city has beautified the area, restoring it (to an extent, albeit) to its former glory.... More
