Description

During this sightseeing tour, see some of the most important Jewish monuments in the city of Shanghai, including the Ohel Moishe Synagogue and Huoshan Park. Gain memorable insights as you discover historical Jewish areas, parks and residences with your knowledgeable guide.

The Jewish community settled in Shanghai at the beginning of World War II, fleeing persecution to settle in the thriving Chinese city. After pick-up from your hotel, begin your tour of Jewish communities in Shanghai, where the people known as Shanghailanders settled in the Hongkou District. Head to this quaint area, where a majority of the approximately 30,000 Jewish immigrants settled. Your destination here is the Ohel Moishe Synagogue, the spiritual meeting place for Jewish refugees. Tour the building and the informative exhibits inside the Museum for Jewish Refugees.

Your next stop is Huoshan Park, one of Shanghai’s hidden gems. Take a stroll around this peaceful area, and pay a visit to the important memorial statue dedicated to Shanghai's Jewish community. Gaze at the remarkable monument and its beautiful surroundings before travelling to the Fairmont Peace Hotel and Moller Villa, where you can admire the European-style, colonial-era architecture.
