The old wharf in Shanghai is the legendary Shilipu Wharf with a 150-year history. The Shilipu Wharf-the earliest Wharf was the busiest wharf in Shanghai which developed from a tiny fishing village into a modern area of Shanghai. It becomes the fashion landmark of the south Bund by presenting a better integration of the art, culture, commerce and fashion of the city. The old wharf is located on Puxi side of the Huangpu River and the south area of Fuxing Road near the yacht marina of the EXPO site.


The old wharf was renovated since the year 2004 and rebuilt into a new international commercial center. The old Shikumen houses (one of the unique residential buildings in Shanghai), the old wharf constructions and old factories are reconstructed with more modern commercial elements. It is currently becoming a new popular tourist attraction in Huangpu District.

The old Shilipu wharf witnesses the changes and developments of the city Shanghai. The typical Shikumen buildings in Shanghai attract a lot of visitors all around the world. Besides, the rebuilt old wharf has been a popular place for publishing new fashion products. A large number of new fashion product launches are held in the old Wharf every month which attract numerous stars and celebrities. Restaurants, bars, creative product shops are gathered in the wharf which make it boast of its entertainment function. Shopping outlets, art galleries and some other fashion shops are full of the old wharf. It is still a luxury center where private clubs, high-level restaurants and bars get together.
