Wine

What’s better than historic Shanghai architecture? Historic Shanghai architecture with wine, that’s what! Join us as we stroll the neighborhood in and around Wukang Road, the former Route Ferguson, exploring its history through the stories of its magnificent villas and quiet lane neighborhoods, with three ‘wine stops’ on historic streets along the way. (Oh, and in case you were wondering if there was wine in old Shanghai – the answer is yes – more on this on the walk!)

Bank of Canton 2016

For all the fame of the storied Bund, the neighborhoods around it are mostly forgotten – and yet contain some astonishing examples of Art Deco in a variety of styles – Chinese, Gothic, and some magnificent skyscraper Deco. From Missionary Row to the onetime Wall Street of Asia, to Shanghai’s old power center and the most Art Deco corner in the entire city, we’ll explore it all!

JewishShanghaiVolunteerCorps

A tour of Shanghai’s fascinating Jewish history, from the Sephardic Jewish traders and businessmen who arrived from Baghdad and India as Shanghai opened to trade, and became the legendary tycoons who built the city, to the White Russian Jews who were fleeing from the Bolsheviks, and the European Jews seeking safe haven as the Nazis rose to power. We’ll visit mansions and synagogues, apartment houses and lane neighborhoods, and discover the legacy of Jewish Shanghai that is still all around us. Bus & walking.
