Shanghai Jewish Refugee museum & huoshan park

Has anyone done this on their own? Although we will be on a tour , we will have free time in Shangai-- can we do a bus or better to do a taxi to this Jewish area. Maybe we can get hotel to write down address or name of area beforehand. The organized 4 hour tour of Jewish sites go for $87 to $100 per person which seems a bit exorbitant. Comments anyone.

We leave in about 3 weeks.

Thanks

There is a website. Do a search or look in tour book. It is either free or very reasonable. We were going to do it but time got away from us. You can get along in Shanghai quite nicely by yourselves. Have your hotel write where you want to go and hand it to the taxi driver. Make sure you have a card from your hotel so you can give it to a taxi driver to get back. We visited Shanghai on our own in May and used the subway.

We took a taxi and walked around the area, including the park, on our own. That price sounds exorbitant! Can you let us know exactly which sites are included on the tour? The synagogue was closed when we visited in 2007, and I did not know of the museum. Not sure why you would need a guide for any of this..

You might find some useful information in my report---look for the post made on May 12:
