The charming North: Hongkou

North of the Suzhou Creek and the former international concessions, life never really changed. The Hongkou district was and is Chinese, but also very Shanghainese with it's pretty tree lined streets, lane houses in the typically Shanghainese grey and red brick style, villas with gardens and the more than present street life. This area attracted many revolutionary artists and writers and it was home to the most famous writer in recent Chinese literature, Lu Xun. Hongkou maybe has the most beautiful park of Shanghai, where we will visit morning activities like tai chi, dancing, gymnastics and sword practice. We wander the little streets with villas, sheds, markets, street doctors and open air duck roasters, and will have a walk through a beautiful restored culture street, where you may see a glamorous of bridal couples posing for their wedding pictures. We visit a church that looks like a Chinese temple, admire the Arabic style villa of Kuomintang Minister of Finance and we can even find traces of the former grim presence of the Japanese during the second World War-years.
