The repurposing of the building is interesting although the day we were there, not much was open. The surrounding neighborhood was a good glimpse of the contrast of old and new Shanghai

if you dig brutalist architecture, this is a great find. It isn't very crowded, and it is a delight to explore. Its got a great blade-runner feel, and the exterior concrete veneer is geometrically perfect.

Imagine a former slaughterhouse transformed into a maze of small shops, with raw concrete everywhere, in a complex setting where you walk up and down stairs, exploring one small alley after another - all just steps away from the Bund - Shanghai's most famous place....More

An architectural wonder restored and transformed into a commercial and retail space, this former slaughterhouse is full of little touches meant to make the journey for the cattle and pigs as least traumatic as possible.

This is such a great place to spend your afternoon away, you can drink coffee, get a cake from cafe or indulge in photo taking with your friends. 1933 is so instagrammable, it’s so vintage and every corner is unique.

Visit during the weekday's for the best experience, but an interesting place to visit and walk around. Initially can feel like you are in a horror movie, with all the weird angles, tight staircases, and maze like feel - but this is soon replaced for...More

We had a lovely day exploring the old slaughter house and the surrounding areas. There is an amazing Scottish whiskey bar which you should definitely pay a visit to. If you continue walking down along the river you get amazing views of the Pudong skyline.

History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but
Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood.
Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during
the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can
still be found in buildings and park monuments.
Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood
throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without
taking you too far away from the city center. Some of
