Visiting Old Shanghai

Although many parts of Old Shanghai have disappeared over the years, there is still a lot to see around the city… when one knows where to look. Also I am not a full time tour guide, I sometimes do private tours around Shanghai in English or French for small groups of people (for details contact me at:

If you are looking for larger group tours of the historic parts of the city, your best bet is Historic Shanghai which has been running groupn tours that can be joined by individuals for years.

Historic Shanghai is an international group of people interested in Shanghai’s rich social and architectural heritage. By visiting Shanghai’s most beautiful buildings and neighborhoods, Historic Shanghai helps deepen understanding of the city’s people, history and culture. Find out about forthcoming events on the Historic Shanghai website.

When you get in touch with them, don’t forget to mention that you got their details from the Shanghailander blog.
