Former French Concession, Shanghai

(4.1/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web)
Explore the European-style, tree-lined avenues which house a variety of modern restaurants, cafes, concept bars, breweries, and art galleries at Former French Concession. Although the concession came to an abrupt end in 1943, the prominent residential and retail district still remains a popular tourist destination and one of the rare centers of Catholicism in China. Go on a walking tour to learn about the history of the charming streets and to discover cultural and religious buildings built by the British, Americans, Russians, as well as the French. In addition to visiting the high-end designer stores and high class restaurants, you can also find markets where you can bargain for cheaper prices.

  • We visited the concession side because with an agency which organizes and then we came back only to feet. Do not miss this architecture who speaks... Watch and listen

  • Well worth the visit for sightseeing, take afternoon tea, Dino in any bar or lunch/dinner. It's a bar more Westernized with many options of bars and restaurants. Super safe and clean. You have to go.
