Shanghai Sights: M50

Shanghai Sights: M50

This morning we said good-bye to our second visitors: my parents. They only stayed with us for a few days after their 2-week tour through China but we tried to squeeze in some sightseeing in addition to the dumpling eating 🙂 There were also some spots on the list I hadn’t been to before, so this will be the start of a few posts about the Shanghai sights we saw. Up first: M50.

On Saturday we headed to M50, an art district named after its address 50 Moganshan Road. It consists of many little galleries/studios you can visit with different types of art. Paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, pottery, jewelry … there is lots to see.

In one store we encountered a rather pushy artist trying to sell us every piece in the space but mostly, you can just wander around and look. While I’m not very into art/ don’t know much about it, I think M50 is a cool place to spend a couple hours exploring.
