Shanghai Off The Beaten Path: 169 reviews and 248 photos
Shanghai, it's not only futuristic architecture and neon lights. There is also a lot of persons still living in hutong, small houses in narrow streets, most of them without electricity. If you go out of the traditional touristic circuit, you can walk in a few of them who are not under demolition (Chinese goverment is trying to eradicate all of them, transfering population in large building complex, destroying at the same time many small community). As you walk, stop to take a tea and smile to everyone.
