Located at the corner of Shaanxi Road S. and Jianguo Road W., this ordinary lane should by no means be missed. The plaque "Heritage Architecture" on the front gives us a hint of its glorious past. Built in 1930, Bugaoli was designed by French merchants for residential use. Occupying over 10,000 square meters, the lane has witnessed the ups and downs of several generations, including being the residence of famous writer Ba Jin, one of the most important writers of the 20th century. Over the years, renovation and preservation have been carried out to protect the historical Shanghai Gate. Even situated on bustling Jianguo Road, Bugaoli evokes a unique feeling of home. A stroll along the lane is definitely worthwhile for visitors to get a taste of Shanghai's brilliant bygone days and to soak up modern inhabitants?serene daily life.
