It was wonderful to work with Janny from Shanghai Pathways. We emphasized that we would like this tour to run like an executive educational program and NOT like a tourist tour, hence the quality/status of the people who will educate us about everything is imperative. And we were not disappointed by this company's services. We had an amazing guide taking... More

We came to Shanghai by Oceania nautica and landed on the port 4 hours behind of our plan due to the bad weather. Janny emailed us and called us to rearranged everything so that... More

Shanghai Pathways helped us to plan a market immersion trip to Shanghai with just the right balance of informative business visits and opportunities for cultural exploration. This experience has positively changed my way of thinking about the world by fostering a greater appreciation for its cultural diversity. During the immersion tour, we had to explore, experience the culture first-hand, and... More

This tour was a wonderful introduction for our students to understand the Chinese market, the quality of the companies we visited and the executives who spoke with us were particularly impressive. Shanghai Pathways had a clear understanding of the needs of MBA programs in both business and culture and catered its quality service with a good balance between the two... More

Two of us were very keen to do the 2 hour foot binding museum in Shanghai, and our friend recommended us to contact Janny from Shanghai Pathways. The tour went very well, it was inside a local's home, an 70 years old man collected more than 3000 pairs of 3 inch shoes, very respectable guy and he was so proud... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Shanghai’s original walls live on in the curve of the streets that serve as the border to the old city. An aerial view shows a clear circular outline and parts of the original wall are preserved as monuments to the ancient past. The main tourist attraction of Yuyuan (which means Yu garden, though it is often redundantly referred to as Yuyuan Garden) draws hordes of tourists every day, but wandering the streets around the complex reveals more exciting attractions such as food and antique markets. There are also streets lined with shops peddling everyday wares such as Chinese dining ware and craft notions that can be even more enticing to visitors uninterested in the usual tourist fare.
