North Point got the nickname of “little Shanghai” and “little Fujian” being a destination for many immigrants and refuges from Shanghai and Fujian seeking safe haven from the civil war era. The population had brought with them their own culture and habits which influenced the entertainment development of the area- as testified by the landmark State Theatre, amusement parks, restaurants, and dance clubs. Recent South East Asian immigrants also injected special cultural characters to North Point.
However, many of the “little Shanghai” characteristics have been disappearing, one of the few remaining stores being the Zhen Nan Noodles Making Factory, and the originally Shanghainess-run Tung Fuk Nam convenient store is now oeprated by Fujianese.
This tour aims to introduce and link North Point’s many-layered human connections, knocking down language and traditional barriers, through Shanghai and Fujian crafts.
As the guided tours are comprised of comprehensive details, interactive elements, and presentation skill – the website can only provide abstract of the tours, hardly able to capture it in full.
