Endless adventures in thrilling Shanghai

Chairman Mao's Former Residence
The Mao House was the former residence of Chairman Mao Zedong, during his third visit to Shanghai. In his lifetime, Mao made 55 trips to the city. During his stay from May to July 1920, Mao made several political contributions from this humble residence on Anyi Road.

Apart from playing an integral role in the making of the Hunan Self-Government Movement, the future Communist Party leader also penned several papers from this apartment.

Listed today as an official site for Red Tourism, the Mao House is protected by the state. It is part of the Jing An Kerry Centre and is undergoing restoration as a museum.
