Exploring a traditional neigborhood, Chinese park and a cultural giant, this tour takes you to a part of Shanghai that is a little outside the main tourist haunts. It is, however, still very accessible. Hongkou District is associated with the writer Lu Xun, and also for the Japanese occupation. Before the Japanese took the whole city, they occupied this area. Later it was used to house the Jewish ghetto. An area of one square mile was used to intern Jewish families but the Japanese resisted German demands to build extermination camps on Chongming Island Today it is home to some sights of interest to tourists. These are rather off the beaten path but if you have time are worth seeing. The tour takes you to one of Shanghai's larger parks and also a culture street which makes for a good place to pick up antiques as souvenirs. You will require around 2-4 hours for this tour.
