Shanghai is known for its towering skyscrapers and sleek, futuristic waterfront, but the Old Town still boasts traditional quarters from its heyday as a 1920s port city. During this adventure-filled sightseeing tour of Old Shanghai’s under-the-radar neighborhoods, hop a classic bicycle to cruise between sights.

Perfect for travelers who have already ticked off the top sights, or anyone looking to wander off the beaten track, this fun and leisurely bicycle excursion begins along the French Concession’s tree-lined boulevards with a pastry breakfast. Then, mingle with locals in Fuxing Park and get a peek into hidden villas, which most tourists overlook.
Hop off your bike to wander through a Buddhist temple and browse through the produce stalls of a traditional open-air wet market. Discover a different side of the fast-paced city with a bike ride down Old Town’s narrow lanes and back alleys, where time appears to be frozen in place.
