While head of the Shanghai Communist Party Zhou Enlai briefly lived in this villa. The brevity of his occupancy is reflected in the relative sparseness of the displays. Most of the rooms have a few pieces of furniture and a legend of description. It was interesting to see that one of his endeavours was evading agents of the governing Nationalist... More

This place is free which is good. It is Zhou en-lai's house and they have really preserved it as it is - which means Spartan!! They have. Little game but that is all about how simple the place is located. There is a prize for the winner though so it keeps the children entertained. Luckily next to it there is... More

I am always curious about the early history between democracy and communism in China, and this attraction offers a lot for me. The house is made by woods, you could hear "Crack, crack" with every step, and I like the sound.

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.
