“My favourite part of Shanghai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

When it's an option, I choose to stay in or around the French Concession. The abundance of shopping options and fantastic restaurants on those shady, narrow streets just can't be beaten.

“Favourite Place in Shanghai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

The Former French Concession is a refreshingly green and leafy area in Shanghai, full of charming side-streets, Parisian cafés and boutiques. It's a great place to spend a day - make sure not to miss out on Fuxing Park and Taixang Rd/Tianzifang

Fabulous area of Shopping in little boutiques and outdoor vendors. In good weather it would be great. We went during rain and snow but still enjoyed the shops and dining.

After a couple of weeks in China just waht we needed. Great setting, nice shopping and great dining options with plenty of al fresco seating. Too crowded though.

“Nice part of town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Lovely part of Shanghai. Went to the propaganda poster museum here. It was a bit of a walk from the nearest metro, but walking through the french concession made it a nice walk.
