The haunting ruins of Shanghai Old City stand on the white sand shores of the Indian Ocean as a reminder of the glorious past. During the colonial era, wealthier classes of Italians lived in the old town, leaving their imprints on numerous buildings and gardens. Wander through the narrow passageways and observe intricate carvings on doors, windows, and hidden corners. Refuel at one of the restaurants along the shore and admire the ocean vista. During weekends, locals come to swim in the warm sea, creating a lively atmosphere.
