Sun Yatsen's (Sun Zhongshan's) residence is near Fuxing Park (former French Park). The house itself is complimented by an expansive but rather chaotic museum of Sun Yatsen where his life and (questionable) participation in the 1911 revolution receive a great deal of propaganda. English captions are abbreviated. The residence does not offer much: the entry into the rooms is forbidden,... More

Relatively quiet, some interesting artifacts. Beautiful colonial-style house and background on one of the more justifiably admired Chinese leaders. Sinan Road on which it is located is a quaint and pretty concession street.

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.
