We had been to Beijing and visited the Great Wall and seen the Terracotta Warriors in Xian however we wanted to do something most visitors don't see in China. Shanghai Pathways offers you the unique chance to do and see things most tourists do see when they visit China. We went on a visit to the Foot Binding Museum. Our... More

I only had a few days in Shanghai and spent a wonderful packed day with Janny seeing both the traditional sights and then sights specific to my interests. It was totally worth it and I highly recommend doing the customized tour.

Our two days with Janny of Shanghai Pathways were the absolute best way to see the City and feel the culture. We had many opportunities to be in local markets and communities to meet with the shop owners and experience Shanghai life as it is lived daily by the residents. Janny is so knowledgeable and able to share these things... More

I had 2 great tours with Shanghai Pathways. I had limited time in Shanghai, so I really wanted to get the most out of my time there. I did a half day tour with Mary where we did the major sights, like The Bund. However, the real highlight was the private, customized day tour with Janny. We did mostly off... More

We only had two days in Shanghai so our first was spent with Janny, figuring we could see major attractions on our own. Janny speaks English extremely well and brought along before and after photos of the big changes that have happened in Shanghai in the last 20 years. We met very friendly local people ballroom dancing in the park.... More

We arrived from Beijing and met Janny as soon as we had dropped our bags at the hotel. She is a kniwledgable and passionate guide who actually grew up in the area that we walked around. The tour didn't cover a large distance but gave great insights into Chinese history and culture.

Janny is one of the best tour guides I've ever used. I gave her a list of experiences I wanted to have to make sure I left Shanghai with an understanding of the city and what it was like to live there. She took me on a tour of the morning markets, lunch at a local restaurant, a chance to... More

Staying in People’s Square

Neighborhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
