A nice little museum, but the stories behind it from our guide were far better than the museum itself. Skip unless you have a compelling reason.

It is wonderful to see these places preserved and this history recognized. It is inspiring to see how Marxism and Lenin and Trotsky's revolution in Russia influenced and brought hope to so many people.

Quite insightful for getting a better understanding how the CPC was established and those involved. Quite ironic this is one of the most capitalistic areas of Shanghai nowadays.

The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a
carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled
with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area
below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most

afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and
