Since there isn’t a lot of information hanging around on-site, book a guided tour and start exploring. Portland has its own underground city known as the Shanghai Tunnels, or the less common name: the Portland Underground. Back in the day, the basements of many a downtown bar and hotel were linked to the Willamette River waterfront by way of these tunnels, allowing supplies to be moved from docked ships directly to basements for storage, thus avoiding rain and heavy traffic. But, never fear, today you can take a safe and secure walking tour and explore a portion of the Shanghai Tunnels to get a sense of the complex network of tunnels, and an understanding of the seamy history surrounding Portland.
Beneath the streets of Scotland’s capital lies a dark and damp world, dating back to the 18th century.
Opened in 1788, a period of great expansion and growth, the vaults date back to a time when Edinburgh was a superstitious place.
Beijing’s underground city, Dixia Cheng, was built in the 1970s to serve as a shelter during invasions, bombings and nuclear attacks.
Fortunately there never was an occasion for this massive underground shelter to fulfil its intended purpose, and in 2000 the place was opened to the public. Dixia Cheng has been under renovations since 2008 and therefore closed for visitors, but make sure you put it on your bucket list to check out when it reopens at an indefinite date in the future. Located in the town of Wieliczka just over 9 miles outside of Krakow, the Wieliczka Salt Mine was built back in the 13th century and has produced table salt continuously until 2007.
One of the biggest tourist draws of Poland, this underground salt city has evolved from a series of dark caves to a complex labyrinth now comprising over 185 impressive miles of galleries, about 3000 chambers and nine floors, with the first three open to the public. RESO, stemming from the French word reseau, meaning network, is one of Montreal’s cornerstones. The first interconnected sections were built in 1962 with the objective of easing traffic and providing a sheltered way of transportation, especially handy during the harsh winter season. Unlike some of the other places on this list, Setenil de las Bodegas, a pueblo (small town) in Southern Spain, isn’t an underground city per se, but it lies underneath massive rock overhangs. The city of Pilsen, in the western part of the country, is home to Pilsen Historical Underground, a 12.5 mile long labyrinth of passageways, cellars and wells built below the city streets in the 14th century. Take a guided tour and explore this ingenious underground system; highlights include the ice cellar, the water tower and the exhibit on medieval bookbinding.


The sleepy city of Moose Jaw, located in the state of Saskatchewan in Southern Canada, is home to a series of tunnels that have two separate stories. In the beginning of the 20th century Canada imposed its now infamous head tax on Chinese immigrants due to the fear that they would steal jobs away from locals. Book these two interactive theatrical tours and travel beneath the streets of Moose Jaw – lay low with an early Chinese immigrant and shake hands with the infamous Al Capone.

Unique to Derinkuyu is the cruciform church located between the third and fourth level and the barrel-vaulted ceiling.
This intricate network reportedly once consisted of tunnel passageways linking Portland’s Old Town, also known as Chinatown, to the central Downtown area.
Though still a controversial topic, rumor has it the tunnels have also been used for the practice of “shanghaiing”: kidnapping people for them to serve as sailors. The Edinburgh Vaults, also known as The South Bridge Vaults, are a series of chambers formed within the 19 arches of South Bridge. The lengthy network of tunnels, often referred to as the Underground Great Wall, included almost 100 hidden entrances and, reportedly, were built with complete services such as schools, hospitals, and sleeping halls in case citizens needed to seek refuge for a longer period of time. A tour only includes a small circular stretch of the complex, but is still attracting travelers from around the world.

This giant maze runs under Montreal’s streets in and around the Downtown area and houses a wide-range of shops, restaurants, hotels, galleries, seven metro stops, cinemas, a library and even apartment buildings. Since the Montreal Metro started operating in 1966, more connections have been added and today RESO consists of 20 miles of tunnels with more than 120 exterior access points. Located along a narrow river gorge that’s eroded by the Rio Trejo river, the houses are built into and under the walls of the gorge itself.
And, if you’re a nature lover, walk down El Escarpe de Rio Trejo, an area of natural diversity, or Ruta de los Bandoleros, which inspired many romantic legends. These cellars once served as storage space for food and barrels of beer and, some say, as an escape route in case of an attack.

As many literary and cultural scholars attest, John Carter has served as a template for the litany of adventure heroes that followed, from Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers and Superman to the Jedi knights of Stars Wars and, more recently, Avatar. And the company is pleased to announce a brand new license with Dynamite Entertainment which will return the original “John Carter Warlord of Mars” to comic books!
The company has overseen every adaptation of his literary works in publishing, film, television, theatrical stage productions, licensing and merchandising. Discovered in 1963, the subterranean network of tunnels and rooms include all the institutions and rooms you would find in a regular city: living quarters, stables, churches, storage rooms, refectories, and wineries – and the underground is said to have possibly held more than 20,000 people. Unfortunately many of these subterranean spaces have been filled in during various public works projects, but a few of them are still there and open to explore. Originally built to house taverns, cobblers, cutlers, smelters and other tradesmen, and to store illicit materials, rumors have it that serial killers Burke and Hare also stored various bodies down here, which they sold for medical experiments. Apart from going shopping, come around to check out the permanent artworks on display, public squares and cultural centers. People actually settled here for practical reasons: in order to keep out the summer heat and the cold in the winter, they only built the facade of the house, while the back was shielded by nature. Legend has it that there is treasure buried within the cellar walls, although looting is discouraged.
Entire families lived here and worked in the local businesses above ground in exchange for food and supplies until the 1920s, when this underground maze acquired a new purpose: Due to the proximity to the US, the tunnels were used for transporting of booze to the US through Canada during the prohibition-era.
The competitions are high-tech spectator sporting events, the result of lots of focused brainstorming, real-world teamwork, dedicated mentoring, project timelines, and deadlines.
