This Jewish tour Shanghai China will introduce the Jewish dwelling district during and before the World War II (1939-1945). In the morning, your guide and driver will pick you up from your residence hotel in Shanghai and then accompany you to the former Tilanqiao Jewish Isolation Region.

Firstly, you will stroll around the Huoshan Park. When walking through the narrow lanes of the historical block, you will have a chance to view the old-style residences by your side. Meanwhile, your guide will also fill you in on the historical events of those days. Then you will be led to the Jewish Refugees Museum, which is the old site of the Jewish synagogue, to commemorate the history of the Jewish refugees in Shanghai during the World War II.

After a whole morning exploration in the Tilanqiao Area, you will have today's lunch on your own. Your guide will gladly assist. In the afternoon, continue to the Urban Planning Exhibition Hall to get a rough idea of how Shanghai City came into being. After that, this Shanghai Jewish ghetto tour will wind up in the Bund Area, where there are 52 exotic buildings from the early 19th, in stark contrast to the futuristic skyline across the Huangpu River.

If time permits, you may factor in another historical block, the French Concession, to further mingle in the exotic and romantic area. By the end of the Shanghai Jewish tour, your guide will escort you back to the hotel and say goodbye.
Tour Highlights
Huoshan Park
With an area of only 3,700 square meters (0.91 acre), the Huoshan Park was once the backyard of the Jewish community. Nowadays, you can still see the former Jewish refugee shelter inside and it is mainly used for rest and recreation.
Tilanqiao Jewish Isolation Region
From 1934 to the end of the World War II, nearly 20,000 Jews inhabited the Tilanqiao, leaving this area some old European-style buildings. Besides, Tilanqiao is also the only place where wartime Jewish refugees congregated, giving this area a sense of history. Nowadays, the brown-colored houses shelter ordinary people, who go about their daily lives not that much different.

    The itinerary of the Shanghai day tour was not in a hurry. There was plenty of time to visit the scenic spots deeply. The guide was knowledgeable and spoke English well. Her excellent explanation was another highlight of the trip. I learned a lot about the history of the Tilanqiao Jewish Isolation Region and Shanghai from her. It was a worthwhile trip!

    The buildings in the Huoshan Park and Tilanqiao Jewish Isolation Region was old. While visiting, the guide told the events happened there. It’s very helpful for our sightseeing. And there were many historical items displayed on the Jewish Refugees Museum. I had a glimpse of the history of Jewish people during the World War II. The Shanghai day tour was very meaningful!
