Wukang Road – Wuyuan Road – Anfu Road – Lunch – Tushanwan Art Museum – Xuhui Riverside –Starbucks Reserve Roastery
On the first day of this Renaissance tour, we will start from the old alleys of the corner of the city, appreciate the stories left over from the past, and return to the era of rushing and messy but still prosperous. In the morning, you will be taken to Wukang Road. Wukang Road, formerly known as Route Ferguson, was named after the American missionary John Ferguson. It was built in 1907 by the Shanghai French Concession Bureau. It is known as the “Celebrity Road that enriches the history of Shanghai in the past 100 years”. Listen to the tour guide to explain the legendary life, walk along the Road, as if into a time tunnel, through a century. Next we will continue to visit Wuyuan Road and Anfu Road. Wuyuan Road is a rare road in Shanghai that does not have access to public transportation, every few steps you can find different architectural styles. Sitting in the Café on Anfu Road, all the encounters are like a long-awaited reunion. These houses and other buildings on these roads cover almost all the residential styles of old Shanghai, and tell the history of old Shanghai and the stories of the years. British, French, and Spanish styles tell the identity of the modern concession. We will suggest you to take an early lunch (venue and cost by yourself) to well suit the designated itinerary, afterwards, we will change our perspective to see the artistic essence that shines in today's modern Shanghai. Tushanwan museum was built on the site of an orphanage, known as "China's cradle of Western painting," Ren Bo, Liu Hai Su, Xu Beihong painting and many paint masters have taught here. Next, you will visit Shanghai’s “New Victoria Harbour” – Xuhui Riverside. Then we will go to the world's largest coffee roaster workshop—Shanghai Starbucks Reserve Roastery, the entire store covers an area of 2,787 square meters. After the tour we will take you to “The Drama” 4* Hotel for checking -in. Inspired by Shakespeare's plays, The Drama is the first theatre-themed hotel in China, combining theatre, performances, films and other art forms to create a fun-filled experience. Into the red door, as if to enter the era of Shakespeare's drama.
