small area with narrow paths

The metro took us right there. It's filled with small shops. Prices are a little expensive, but you can bargain for deals. You can get a feeling of Shanghai NongTang

Very interesting and many crampy lanes especially in the weekends, it's best to go in the weekdays. Shops selling knickknacks to streetfood to pubs and cafes. Art galleries are located at a far corner.

Very good choice for a walk. There are a lot of shops and bars. You can spend a couple of hours to drink a beer at the pubs and shop souvenirs.

An area of narrow streets, quaint little shops and places to eat. All a bit too touristy for me. Not dissimilar to Stanley Market in Hong Kong, but a bit more variety and possibly more up market. I was told it was the place tourists liked to go, not this tourist. It was ok for an hour or so, and... More

This is a small warren of streets in Shanghai which has become a tourist destination and a great place for shopping. The houses and shops are authentic but the traders are not really the artisans that you might expect. however it's a great place to explore.

I wish I could have stayed longer but glad i went over lunch one day. It was recommended by a local. The quirky, windy, maze of streets is a blast to wander down. A few antiques but mainly new artistic things. Some touristy but really, you won't care. I did hear the narrow streets can get very packed on a... More

This place is full of shops and restaurant, all the streets are connected each other and getting lost there can be funny! you can find a grat number of souvenirs and cloths, but you can also eat something and simply enjoy your time there.

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighborhood 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.
