Why we suggest this tour itinerary?

Every person knows that Shanghai is the most cosmopolitan city in China. But only a few blocks to the Bund, by the side of the former Concession and International Settlement, there is the area of the old Shanghai County Town with many well protected places of cultural and historical interests.  

 

The old Shanghai County Town was set up in 1292 and around 1 mile in diameter. Now only 50m long city wall survived, because Temple of Lord Guan was on it (he is the God of War and also the God of Wealth in Taoism and the Guardian in Buddhism). Tourists will stroll on the wall to have the feeling of the grandeur of the old Shanghai city hundreds years ago. A Taoist Baiyuan Temple is right by the side of the city wall. It is very famous for the 8 vivid copper statues of Taoist God which were made in the late Ming Dynasty (around 400 years ago).  

 

Not far from the city wall site is the Confucius Temple, the only ancient architectural complex combining temple and school in downtown Shanghai to worship China’s great thinker and founder of the Confucian culture, Confucius.

 

Of course tourists will also visit the famous Yuyuan Garden, Yuyuan Bazaar and Old City God Temple. This area was the heart of old Shanghai citizen public life and is also one of the Must attractions for all of the tourists to Shanghai. The 450 years old garden is well protected and still shows its mysterious glamour of the stunning classical Chinese garden arts to all of the tourists.
