About this spot
Shanghai’s Old Town, known as Nanshi, or southern city in Chinese, refers to the area that used to be the old walled city prior to the arrival of foreign powers. The city wall, which came down in 1912 roughly tracked what today is Renmin Road and Zhonghua Road. During the concession era it used to be referred to as the Chinese City, and today is still among the most traditionally Chinese areas of Shanghai.
