Discovering Shanghai on one of our vintage bicycles is a really special experience…
More intimate and eco-friendly than simply driving between famous landmarks, yet less strenuous than exploring on foot, discovering Shanghai on one of our vintage bicycles is a really special experience. Going a level deeper than most excursions, we want to share with you a whole different side of Shanghai.
Observing the locals performing their morning routines at Fuxing Park can be a funny experience for those unfamiliar with the Chinese tradition of using these green spaces for our hobbies. Singing Karaoke and dancing outside with your friends is quite normal and the locals are usually more than happy to perform for your videos and pictures!
What is so wonderful is that there’s no rush. We take our time riding through the lively markets and losing ourselves among the narrow lanes in the former French Concession. After a leisurely breakfast, we can stroll through a peaceful Buddhist Temple and cycle through the remnants of the Old Town where time seems to have stood still.
Something different happens on each tour and that’s what makes it so fascinating. You really get to breathe in the city.
