A Limited Edition Public Tour based on the book by Paul French and led by historian Peter Hibbard
Once in a while we get to produce something really special – and this is one of those times! We’re excited to be teaming up once more with bestselling author Paul French (Midnight in Peking) for an exclusive, one-off tour based on his new book, Bloody Saturday. And since we don’t do things by halves, we’ve asked legendary ‘Old Shanghai Hand’ Peter Hibbard – eminent historian and author of classic books on the Bund and Cathay Hotel – to lead the walk.
In August 1937, a number of bombs rained down on Shanghai, causing utter devastation to its buildings and residents. But instead of being dropped by the Japanese, the explosives came from Chinese planes. This is your chance to learn about this shocking, oft-forgotten episode in Shanghai’s history from a world class guide, and to rediscover the Shanghai of the 1930s.
