Luxun Park & Hongkou History
Hidden in Shanghai’s old lanes and streets are numerous historic revolutionary sites, which are often unnoticeable to careless tourists.
The Hongkou district lies to the north and east of the Suzhou Creek. It was originally developed by American and Japanese concessionaires. In 1863, it was combined with the British Concession to create the International Settlement.
Experience an authentic experience of local life by walking into a beautiful park named after Luxun, China's greatest modern writer for the 20th century, also an important critic known for his sharp essays on the historical traditions and modern conditions of China.
