Adventures of Our Concrete Hiking Trip, Shanghai

My friend and I took a concrete hiking trip in Shanghai to an area unfamiliar to both of us. We wanted and took the metro to a section of town that would be new to both of us. Line 10 took us to Tiangton Rd away from the glitz and glam of East Nanjing, one of Shanghai’s main shopping hubs.

The section of Tiangton Rd. we visited is an old town area in the process of being demolished. Shanghai is notorious for removing the old and putting in new high rise buildings. Sadly, some of the buildings do have to go as they are in a state of disrepair. However, some of the buildings had beautiful architecture designs.

The most surprising discovery of our walk was to see that life still existed within the rubble. Or to see a second floor caved in and the 1st floor with an existing business. Of course when I saw this I immediately shift into a questioning mode of, “why and don’t they”.
