Street Scenes: Old Town Shanghai

Pockets of what Shanghai looked like before space age skyscrapers began to sprout still exist throughout the city.

The city’s Old Town, pictured here, is like wandering through a village tucked inside a sprawling metropolis. If you find yourself in Shanghai don’t miss out on taking a stroll though one of its remaining Longtang neighborhoods.

This looks very quaint and not like the image you typically get of Shanghai.

The old pockets of Shanghai are cool - shame alot are being knocked down though. Hopefully some character-filled areas will remain!
