T-duality of string theory suggests nonlocality manifested at the shortest possible distance. As an alternative, we suggest a nonlocal formulation of string theory that breaks T-duality at the fundamental level and does not require the shortest possible distance. Instead, the string has an objective shape in spacetime at all length scales, but different parts of the string interact in a nonlocal Bohmian manner.
