This well-maintained camel-back truss bridge spans the Suzhou Creek, where it joins the Huangpu River at the northern end of the Bund promenade. Noted for being China's first all-steel bridge, it opened in 1908. I first saw the bridge when I stopped at the Monument...More

History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but
Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood.
Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during
the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can
still be found in buildings and park monuments.
Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood
throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without
taking you too far away from the city center. Some of
