4.What are, in your opinion, the top 3 non - touristy spots in the city that cannot be missed?
Hopefully there are still a lot of places that remain away from the most touristic attractions:
- the Old Town, in the heart of Shanghai, surrounded by brand new and expensive compounds, still offers a genuine Old Shanghai experience.
- some parts of the French Concession are still less known to tourists and give a real picture of the city.
- some parts of the Hongkou district, north of the Suzhou Creek, are still unharmed by the global urbanization and offer a chance to experience what the life was like at the beginning of the last century
