Duolun, famous cultural street person, a street that has become established there by the Society for writers and artists known (is no longer). A number of buildings have been extensively restored, perhaps too good. In the car-free street are some beautiful bronze statues of famous Chinese writers/poets, like Shen Yimo, Guo Moruo and Ding Ling. There is also a Christian church in a combined Chinese - European style (still in use). We also visited a colonial cinema with an original-looking design. The interior (furniture, paneling, stairs etc) consists of lots of dark, beautifully finished wood. The European style of the colonial thirties is nicely combined with Chinese techniques and Chinese forms. The visit is part of a very successful tour of Wheely Bike Tours of Ellen Petit.

Great little gem for an afternoon exploration. Statues of the leftist writers from the 1920s and 1930s line the pedestrian street. Little cafes, including the charming Old Film Café. One gets the feel of literary life in Shanghai during this period.

Nice for a stroll around, antique type shops, a few nice cafes and so on, lots of photo opportunities. Found it easier to take Metro to the Hongkou Stadium and walk down from there. Walking distance to Lu Xun park and surrounding area so could combine both in same day, but a lot of walking.

I lived in an apartment in this area long before the change. At that time, I used to hear the "old timers" spin yarns nightly about how Duolun Road was back in the day, back in the Roaring 20s and the turbulent 30s. Now the city has beautified the area, restoring it (to an extent, albeit) to its former glory. Wear your walking shoes, as you are in for a good trek. And it would be highly recommended that you brush up on your history of the area before arriving--if nothing else, check out Wiki's webpage, which has a pretty decent amount of info.
