    Default Did any wuxia stories take place in the Shanghai area?

    Shanghai is modern China's most important city other than the capital (and aside from government and politics, Shanghai is probably overall more important to China than Beijing is), and has been for nearly one-hundred years. We don't hear too much about Shanghai in wuxia stories, though.

    Did any wuxia events occur in what is today the Shanghai metropolitan area? The region might have been known under a difference name in the past.

    Lots of 'modern day' martial arts movies have scenes in Shanghai, but, not much wuxia, no. It was nothing more than a fishing village pre-1840's. Most wuxia novels are placed well before that.
