We will begin our walk at 9:30am meeting at the Costa coffee on the bund prior to setting off. We will take a step back in time and trace the footsteps of the gangsters and the girls of Old Shanghai.  Although a lot of the landmarks that were so prominent in those days have gone, we will take the time to reminisce about the bygone era.  We will base the walk loosely on the characters in the book - City of Devils by Paul French. Please do read the book before the walk if you can.  We will finish the walk at one of the last remaining dance halls of the 1930's - The Paramount. We can either have lunch in the Jing'an Kerry Centre or head off.

Further details and arrangements will be given through the wechat group nearer the time.

We will be walking from the Bund into Jing'an.  Please wear comfortable shoes.

We will postpone the walk only if it is due to rain heavily.
