The area
Neighborhood: 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.

Well Visited by Tourists but Very Underwelcoming
Dec 2014 • Couples
mmmmm We were taken to the church whilst on a bus tour - please be aware that you can only go into the very back part of the church. My husband and I were in and out within 5 minutes, as were other tourists.

There is a toilet to use behind a nearby building which is disgusting. The ladies waiting to use the toilet can clearly see the men in their toilet stood at the urinal and toilet paper has to be asked for and paid for.

Street hawkers mob the area trying to sell their wares to the hundreds of bus tour occupants and because the area is congested with people and coaches, safety on the roads around this attraction is questionable.

Would I go again - no.
