Walk in Shanghai – The Southern Part of Hongkou District

Walk in Shanghai – The Southern Part of Hongkou District

Hongkou, is a district of Shanghai, forming part of the northern urban core. It has a land area of 23.48 km2 (9.07 sq mi).

It is the location of the Astor House Hotel, Broadway Mansions, Lu Xun Park, and Hongkou Football Stadium.

At one time, Hongkou developed into a major community of Cantonese and Japanese residents in Shanghai and was known as Shanghai’s “Little Tokyo”.

Hongkou District is probably the most densely populated administrative district in Shanghai and was originally a beach on the shores of the East China Sea, crossed by rivers.

Today we walk in the southern part of the Hongkou district, starting from the mouth of the Suzhou River and heading north, along Hongkou Gang River, looking at the old buildings on both sides of the river.

Because of the redevelopment in this district of the city, we see mostly empty buildings.
