China // Shanghai and around //

North of Suzhou Creek

North across the Waibaidu Bridge from the Bund, you enter an area that, before the war, was the Japanese quarter of the International Settlement, and which since 1949 has been largely taken over by housing developments. The obvious interest lies in the Lu Xun Park area (also known Hongkou Park), and its monuments to the political novelist Lu Xun, although the whole district is lively and architecturally interesting.
