If you have a chance visit nearby do drop by this free admission museum and really learn how the most important part of China formed. There is x ray screen at entrance and would not get queue up too long.

The place is worth of a visit. It gives a good account of this historical moment, and can be easily combined with visits around. Not to be missed!

If you can get past the unsubtle state propaganda (as Comrade Xi Jinping said...) it's a pretty interesting insight into the history of modern Chinese history (or at least how the current regimes wants to present it!). Best of all.. it's free!! Try not to...More

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
fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can
afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and
shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park
provides the area with green space and is also home to
