The Shanghai Gangster Tour


Event Details

  • Date:

Take a tour through Shanghai with a “colonial gangster” and learn about the crime lords who once ruled the city like kings. From “Big Eared” Du with his lucky monkey heads to “Pockmarked” Huang and his police car drug distribution, get to know some of the early 20th century’s most powerful gangsters and find out why you wouldn’t want to cross them. Then, having got your bearings amongst the city’s leading criminal families, enjoy a complimentary drink in a property that once belonged to one of the world’s most influential families.
