Our guide for the one day tour was MJ, with Caroline along "in training". We were fortunate that it was only our group of three, as we definitely had great service from MJ.

I, like everyone else, had a wonderful experience working with MJ. I'm a bit of a budget traveler, and really deliberated about whether I could afford the cost of a custom tour with MJ.

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
