Some really tasty snacks in Old City Shanghai, including this crispy and flaky scallion pancake (葱油饼, cong you bing) and the much hyped xiaolongbao at the famed Nanxiang Restaurant. A few people left the line at Nanxiang after hearing that the wait was 30+ minutes but the masochist within me with experience waiting in lines at night markets thought it was a piece of cake 😉

The Old City of Shanghai (上海老城厢) looks like a movie set and is super touristy but I loved the classical buildings, the bustle of the crowds and the traditional food!

It is perfectly fine to be momentarily lost and drifting. A lot of great discoveries are sometimes due to predestined stumbles.  It is one of life's unexpected but beautiful twists on how to discover your true self. ~ Dodinsky 💟

Old Chinese district wanishing in Shanghai. Chinese residents are already looking elsewhere in the opposite direction #oldshanghai #oldcityshanghai #shanghaidemolition #oldchinesecity #arnaud-duval-photography
The Old City of Shanghai, also formerly known as the Chinese city, is the traditional urban core of Shanghai, China. Its boundary was formerly defined by a defensive wall. The Old City was the county seat for the old county of Shanghai.⠀
⠀
Here are 3 things I've learned while visiting Shanghai last year (Chinese summer).⠀
⠀
⠀
1. Why should I visit?⠀
⠀
Well, I need a bit of context here. With the advent of foreign concessions in Shanghai, the Old City became just one part of Shanghai's urban core but continued for decades to be the seat of the Chinese authority in Shanghai. Notable features include the City God Temple which is located in the center of the Old City and is connected to the Yuyuan Garden. With the exception of two short sections, the walls were demolished in 1912, and a broad circular avenue built over the former wall.⠀
⠀
⠀
2. One very interesting aspect is actually the fortification, and here I talk a bit more about it.⠀
⠀
There may have been some sort of defensive works around the county seat of Shanghai from the 11th century. The city wall which survived until the 20th century and parts of which remain to this day was, however, built in 1554 during the Ming Dynasty, in order to protect the town from raids by Japanese pirates. It measured 10 metres (33 ft) high and 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) in circumference. Pretty impressive eh?⠀
⠀
⠀
3. What about the recent history of the Old City?⠀
⠀
The Old City walls were dismantled in 1912 by General Chen Qimei, then new Governor of Shanghai.Apart from two small preserved sections, the walls were demolished in 1912, and a broad circular avenue built in the place of the wall and moat. The northern half of the circular road was completed in 1913. To celebrate the founding of the Republic of China in 1912, and because the road formed the boundary between the Chinese city and the French Concession, the road was named the Boulevard des Deux Republiques (literally "Boulevard of the Two Republics"). ⠀
⠀
Now its over to you, if you have read until here leave a comment with #chinalove or ⛲ , I just want to know how many of you guys read my text until the end. Have a great week!!⠀
