Why take this tour?

The last dynasty Qing (Empire) collapsed in 1911 and the people's Republic of China (Communist) founded in 1949, what happened in China between 1911 and 1949? It was R. O. C. Republic Of China. For which I would like to refer it as The First Republic and current China is the Second Republic (Communist). Pick up the tour and find out where was city center of Shanghai under The First Republic and how does it look like now? Let's restore the vanished history with your own eyes. With 40+ years opening up, China is no longer a misterious kindom and most of our travellers here are the experienced visitors. Even for the first-time visitor, it's barely a hard job to be on your own with the help of internet and billingual signs everywhere in all of our first-tier cities in China. Obviously you don't need a local guide if merely skimming on those tourist trap. Go with me to withness the history of Shanghai, touch real the life of Shanghai, and feel the heart beating of people in Shanghai!
