What you'll do

Shanghai was, world widely speaking, the city that hosted the biggest number (around 25,000) of Jewish refugees during the Second World War :) I will introduce you to the former community of more than 10,000 Jewish refugees, and birthplace to many moving life stories. In the tour, we would tap into this one-and-only ethnically diverse ghetto in the world, stopping by at some local Chinese street food at the mean time. Highlights of the tour include discovering a former living area of survivors and seeing a cafe once opened by Jews. At the end of the experience, there are 2 options: A) During the tours at daytime, I would invite you on a ferry ride across the mother river of Shanghai that takes us all the way to Pudong, where the tallest buildings in Shanghai are located, to have a glimpse of the Shanghai skyline. B) During the tours at night time, I would love to take you to the local food market, which showcases an assortment of authentic Chinese stores and shops, which you might not be able to find on your own. ※ This experience stands out with my special design of an interactive, small group experience. It would be a perfect 2 hours spent for history lovers, architecture enthusiasts and those who have deep interest for Shanghai's past and present.
