If you have time and an interest in architecture a visit to the 1933 Old Millfun is worth a trip. The building offers interesting photo opportunities, with all the unusual angles.
A former slaughterhouse. Almost looks deceiving from the outside, but once you enter the building, you'll be impressed by all the elements in the design, it's hard to imagine it was built for its utilitarian purpose back in the day...you can imagine the animals being herded on the pebbled paths from one level to the next (kinda sad, i know...)....

A very cool find. It was a nice walking distance from my hotel. Great to stumble upon it after exploring the neighborhood. Fascinating architecture and history.

I spent a couple of hours wandering around and the history of this place is just fantastic. The best way to get here is by cab. It's not hard to get here from the centre of Shanghai.... More
