Nice place to take a little stroll and look at statues of the Left Wing Writers of the '30s. There is also a statue of Charlie Chaplin. Little shops here and there. Also a building with multiple floors of 'old school' antique shops...dusty and crowded...More

Adapted from a post on my blog “Shanghai virtually painted by Tan Choon Hong”. Once the epicentre of intellectual buzz and the meeting place for radicals like the League of Leftist Writers, Duolun Lu lost its mojo until it was turned into a pedestrian street...More

My second visit. Was last here in 2005. Love the typical Shanghainese ambience where old and new buildings blend in nicely. Worth a look for the architecture alone. It used to be the base of China's modern literature, with many cultural notabilities living here in...More

Stumbled across these streets after meandering through North Shanghai. We loved the tiny curiosity shops (you must check out 1933) and watching the residents chat and play in the afternoon sunshine. Our children appreciated the space and lack of traffic to play in the streets....More

I was going to visit Lu Xun Park (鲁迅公园) in Hongkou (虹口), and I went through Cultural Celebrities Street, as it is located between Hailun Road Station (海伦路站) and Lu Xun Park. This street has many interesting Western buildings, and full of understated antique stores....More

Although not unpleasant, I think there are many more authentic places to take a stroll in Shanghai that are also a lot closer to the typical tourist path. A highlight, however, was the Christian Church which was built with buddhist temple details in the architecture....More

My review: Location - Duolun Road. Getting there, take Subway line # 3, metro station Dongbaoxing Rd. Walk for 10-15 minutes from subway station to Duolun Road (on your left side). This is a renovated quarter of 2-3 streets which used to be the area...More

Duolun Lu is an almost complete restored street from the 1920-30 era. It is (almost) car free and I would guess, about 1/2 mile long. With all the nice buildings, nice small shops and cafes it is a gem in Shanghai. It is still somewhat...More

Great little gem for an afternoon exploration. Statues of the leftist writers from the 1920s and 1930s line the pedestrian street. Little cafes, including the charming Old Film Café. One gets the feel of literary life in Shanghai during this period.

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
