History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood. Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can still be found in buildings and park monuments. Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without taking you too far away from the city center. Some of the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.
If you do hava a connection to Lu Xun, also visit the adjacent museum. At the Memorial, look for the cigarettes that might be burning alongside the statue. Lu Xun was an avid smoker and people still keep him supplied. The park itself is an attraction. When I visited on a saturday afternoon, I was literally the only Westerner there....
Adapted from a post on my blog “Shanghai virtually painted by Tan Choon Hong”.
Once the epicentre of intellectual buzz and the meeting place for radicals like the League of Leftist Writers, Duolun Lu lost its mojo until it was turned into a pedestrian street cum cultural centre.
Many buildings were restored and statues installed to pay homage to the...
My first time in the Vue restaurant and I’m sure that I’m like many other travellers in China that I need a good fix of Western food at some point. This restaurant did not disappoint.
As a sole diner I was unfortunately not able to take the sharing dishes but a simply cooked Aussie beef steak is hard to beat....
"Very good food - But place could afford some upgrade"

I would not say that this was the best Peking Duck ever, but very close. Also the Shanghai crab dumplings and the Fish soup were delicious. Only the place is a little run down and not necessarily what you expect in a Hyatt.
We were heading to another restaurant and we saw this and looked at the menu. The range of food was good. We had a chicken curry that was delicious and my partner loved his lamb sausage. It was very filling and reasonably priced. I would recommend this restaurant and will probably return.
This is a reconstruction of the cafe from Friends, right down to the orange sofa. Better still they managed to get the friendly casual atmosphere that you saw on Friends. Quite an achievement! The food and lager was very good and quickly served by friendly staff. To cap it all it has 'Friends' on a loop on the TV so...
I stayed here for 6 nights while I was on a business trip. The receptionist named “Ruby” gave me a spectacular room with awesome view. The service is excellent as well.
Planning to come back here again
First trip to Shanghai for business and couldn't ask for a better place to stay. I was only here for 1 night and had to travel to Nantong the next morning, but it was extremely relaxing for the 1 night.
My room was very modern and had a great view of the Bund. Bed was super comfortable after a long...

Recommended to us by China Odyssey Tours which they have special deal with. It is a bit isolated from the main tourist attractions and is almost a ten minute walk from a metro station. Only attractions close by were Shanghai Jewish Refugees Museum and 1933 building. Only hotel in China that offered us a free map which was nice touch....
I have been traveling to China on business for nearly ten years. For the past three years when I travel to Shanghai I always stay at the Sheraton Hongkou. It’s the value and customer service that keeps me coming back. I generally get a room on the club level floors. The rooms are comfortable and elegantly designed. The price to...
