Shanghai Things to Do: 1,087 reviews and 2,293 photos
definitely different from Beijing Style Hutongs and they are named Longtang in Shanghai. The Shanghai Style local houses and alleyways (longtang) have bigger 2 to three storey buildings instead of the single storey hutongs of Beijing and the original longtangs were miniature, compact neighborhoods, made up of small wood buildings but nowadays are mainly into the european chinese mix shikumen style.. Inside one longtang, there were many alleyways and houses but each longtang only one exit. You can find many Shanghai Longtangs still standing in areas like Dongtai Road, Huahai Zong Road, Xinchang Road and Xiamen Road to name a few.
