Accelerated City

While the rest of the world struggles with recession, China explodes with growth. Cities spring up overnight. Or, as the case of Shanghai, are transformed weekly. During the course of this three-hour tour of Shanghai we'll look at the forces shaping China's economic growth and how this is playing out on the ground here. We'll explore the extreme contrasts of the emerging metropolis and have a local scholar frame some of the major issues for us.

Our walk begins at Qufu road in one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city. Strolling through the tangle of old alleyways and dense housing we will pass through vibrant street markets that trade in food and fabric. This area is slated for destruction, and life exists amidst the rubble of half demolished structures. This provides the perfect backdrop to discuss some of the major themes that are emerging from Shanghai's high speed growth: the role of planning versus the unplanned, relocation and urban development, and the stark gaps between old and new.

Our discussion will carry us towards the Hangpu River. Along the river’s edge we will visit a recently refurbished industrial zone known as ‘Old Docks’. While exploring the new boutique restaurants and designer hotels we will discuss the enormous boom in Shanghai’s ‘creative clusters’ and the role they play in city’s ambition to become a key cultural hub of the 21st century.

Crossing the river by ferry, we'll visit Pudong, an area that, until Deng Xiaoping’s famous 'tour of the south’ in 1992 was largely undeveloped. Twenty years later Pudong boasts an eye-popping array of skyscrapers bearing the names of major global financial firms. We will get a close up view of the cluster of super tall towers that dominate the science fiction skyline of Shanghai. In the canyons of Pudong we'll grapple with the seeming contradictions of China's state-managed enterprises and the interrelationship between Communism and free-market enterprise. Although full explanations may elude, our expert will attempt to frame and contextualize the questions.

To conclude we'll visit the tallest building in Shanghai for a wrap-up refreshment in the skyline bar on the 91st floor, with amazing views over the city that provide a meaty backdrop to our ongoing and lively discussion.

Day Tour - Shanghai Experience

Much of Shanghai's Jewish Quarter disappeared, but visitors can still see some resemblance on buildings where thousands of refugees lived alongside the city's residents. Explore Hongkew district at the southern Hongkou and southwestern Yangpu districts of modern Shanghai, where it was formally known as the Restricted sector of stateless refugee and discover stories behind each buildings and how it took part during or after the World War II.

The Shanghai Jewish Refugees Museum

Located on Changyang Road in the Hongkou District, the Shanghai Jewish Refugees Museum was built in memory of the time during the Second World War when Jewish refugees sought sanctuary from massacre. It is housed in the former Ohel Moshe Synagogue where the Jewish refugees gathered for religious activities. The museum holds many scrolls and other cultural relics.

Hongkou District

Formally known as the Restricted sector of stateless refugees, this area is approximately one square mile in the Hongkew district of Japanese-occupied Shanghai (the southern Hongkou and southwestern Yangpu districts of modern Shanghai). The area included the community around the Ohel Moshe Synagogue but about 23,000 of the city's Jewish refugees were restricted or relocated to the area from 1941 to 1945 by the Proclamation Concerning Restriction of Residence and Business of Stateless Refugees. It was one of the poorest and most crowded areas of the city. Local Jewish families and American Jewish charities aided them with shelter, food, and clothing.The Japanese authorities increasingly stepped up restrictions, but the ghetto was not walled, and the local Chinese residents, whose living conditions were often as bad, did not leave.

Ohel Rachel Synagogue

Is a Sephardi synagogue in Shanghai, China. Built by Sir Jacob Elias Sassoon in memory of his wife Rachel, it was completed in 1920 and consecrated in 1921. Ohel Rachel is the largest synagogue in the Far East, and one of the only two still standing in Shanghai. Re-purposed first under the Japanese occupation during World War II and again following the Communist conquest of Shanghai in 1949, the synagogue has been a protected architectural landmark of the city since 1994. It was reopened for some Jewish holidays from 1999 and briefly held more regular Shabbat services as part of the 2010 Shanghai Expo.
