    actually I feel sad for china "GOOD" tourist place...they always over harest the commercial part..and one thing good for me least I wun regret I din go there ...haha

    Let me know when you are here.
    I live in Shanghai (although not always here), and if our dates match, I can bring you on an old Shanghai tour, specifically for photographers. I've been researching the streets around Puxi center for some time. Perhaps not 100 years old, but old enough it doesn't look like Pudong.

    PM me.

    Just came back from holiday in Shanghai and jiangnan, for some old shanghai, try the QiBao old town. Walk the rural side streets instead of the new main street. The crab roe Xiao Long bao there is cheap and very nice!

    Tung is right. There are a lot of old shanghai houses (untainted by tourism) and the everyday folks that leave around there - if that is what you are looking for.

    Alternatively, visit the parks that old folks gathered - you will be able to pick up a few shots with taste of how older Shanghai folks spend their quiet moments.

    Here's a small set of what I shot previously

    Tung has more pictures as he spent more time than me during that period.
