Been here 01.12.2016. Attractive place to see lots of art elements within a renovated old Shanghai street. Too bad I was there by evening and unable to capture nice photos. Advisable to visit in the afternoon.

We visited this both at night and in the day, it was an interesting and quirky part of Shanghai, and very enjoyable whether or not you are a shopper. It is however very crowded, and not so easy to find, but a fun experience.

Very unusual and interesting souvenir place! A lot of hand made souvenirs and cool souvenir shops. You need to taste Elmio frozen yoghurt there! And you can buy a Shanghai postcard and send it to your country! Good surprise for family and friends

One of the mustsee of SH. Place with unique atmosphere. Just get lost in its streets and enjoy! Grab some snack or food, check the shops around...

Cute place to walk around. Be forewarned: there are many many tourists so streets can be very crowded! Very easy access from the subway- walk across street and you're there!

Enjoyed an early morning Sunday shopping trip, much more manageable than Yu garden. Lots of quaint alleys. The restaurants are interesting, a great flavor of Shanghai.

Fun little shops and restaurants. Has the fun china flare old and new. You can get lost in a good way. Good for a fun happy hour destination too.

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
