This is a must-see place - the old pig slaughter house, with ramps connecting the floors which they would drive the pigs up, before they were killed and butchered. This is all raw concrete architecture, being wonderfully restored and re-adapted for trendy office space, design...More

So we were doing this regular tourist thing --- rooftop bar on the Bund at night admiring the modern architectural skyline, when my ex pat friend mentioned 1933. The name "1933" immediately brought up more futuristic, sci fi, fantasy- like images in my head. Like...More

If unusual architecture and photography appeal then this building likely has it all along with a touch of the macabre. A concrete oddity with ramps and air bridges(27 bridges apparently - I didn't count them) and bare concrete everywhere. Seems to also be a very...More

Never came here when I lived in Shanghai but decided to explore this attraction when I visited Shanghai recently. Wonderful piece of architecture - as most reviewers have mentioned, it was a former slaughterhouse. Numerous shops within the structure as well as a cafe at...More

Within a city filled with tall buildings this place is worthwhile visiting if you like architecture and history. Have a drink at the restaurant on the third floor and obtain a free pass to a small roof garden on the top floor. Not the best...More

Take a break from modern-futuristic Shanghai, and enter the world of the brutalist-style Millfun. (Disclaimer: I don't study art nor history so my 'style' descriptors may not be the most accurate.) It offers great corridors to rest at, take photos of and cafes and restaurants...More

Very interesting architecture for this former slaughter factory. Pure 30's style. Industrial look for this 1930 building. The structure looks ok despite minimum renovation done. A place to see even not used as its maximum potential. Nice piece of art.

History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but
Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood.
Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during
the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can
still be found in buildings and park monuments.
Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood
throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without
taking you too far away from the city center. Some of

Hello, You might look for it on expat's events. I went there twice the first one it was at night and it was a private event from my company, so it might be something going on organized by an expatriates association
