Huangpu – British China or Chinese Britain?

Event Details

  • Date:

Huangpu – this district in the center of downtown Shanghai is a symbol of the hustle and bustle coming from its old colonial times when trading between China and Britain was the main force to make money. Still, the harbor city is a place for imports and exports – in every corner we see workers, traders, Shanghainese, and migrants of all kinds. The famous Nanjing Dong Lu with its high-end shopping malls is just around the corner from hidden alleyways with its traditional shops, the former second race course as well as a wonderful side step to the Uighur food corner. Chinese life in a British outfit, traditional and post-modern. Altogether shows this walk with Maja von dem Bongart from China Culture Consulting Co.
