Duolun Lu (Duō lún wénhuà jiē) Review

Although Duolun Lu has been neatly restored, its architecture and general ambiance takes you back in time to the 1930s, when the 1-km (½-mile) lane was a favorite haunt of writer Lu Xun and fellow social activists. Bronze statues of those literary luminaries dot the lawns between the villas and row houses whose ground floors are now home to cafés, antiques shops, and art galleries. As the street takes a 90-degree turn, its architecture shifts 180 degrees with the seven-story stark gray Shanghai Duolun Museum of Modern Art.

    Peaceful and interesting in a busy city

    Historic buildings, with actual history (the League of Left-Wing Writers met there) with little traffic, few other tourists (at the moment) and very pretty, this couldn't get much better. Except that there are also interesting antique and curio stores, a second hand bookstore if you can read Chinese and a couple of chic eating places. Not much English around though.
