I took a walking tour of Shanghai's Old City and Yu Yuan Gardens. I highly recommend this tour, as it takes you to some of the oldest, most important sights in Shanghai's history -- and offers some shopping as well. A good first look at what makes the city special. Be warned, it's a heavy tourist area, expect crowds. My... More

We had a wonderful day with Rita from Shanghai Pathways. She took us to see a ton of sites throughout the city and had great info to share about each of them. The day of our tour coincided with Tomb Sweeping Day (a national holiday in China), so we were thrown a bit of a curveball when the line for... More

I took the old town classic tour on Tuesday morning. It was amazing experience to know the Shanghai's garden, street culture, not only learning about history and culture but also knowing the local people's daily life that I as a tourist, could never have had in any other way. Our guide Lisa loves the Chinese culture and local people and... 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.
