Lu Xun's final home, near Lu Xun Park, three storey house, with tour guide only, very cheap at 8 rmb entrance fee, not a great deal to see but of interest to those wanting to see more about this author's life and see inside one of these historic houses. Tour takes no time at all, area around the house is... More

Mr. LU Xun was one of the greatest literary figures of the 20th century China. He was the author of the famous story THE TRUE STORY OF AH Q. This former LU's residence has several floors.

Staying in Hongkou

Neighbourhood Profile
Hongkou
History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood. Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can still be found in buildings and park monuments. Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without taking you too far away from the city center. Some of the city’s best-preserved, ancient longtangs (laneway communities) and shikumen (Shanghainese lanehouses) are still in use as actual residences here. If you like to be surrounded by local faces, Hongkou is a great area to spend your time in. The football stadium, Duolun Lu and the North Bund area await should you need some entertainment.
