Been coming here for years and seeing the neighborhood transform, i.e. Across the street a whole stretch of Shanxi South has been boarded up for more than a year when it had been full of vibrant local coffee
shops, local non-chain clothing and daily usage...More
Got foot and body massages. The foot massage started great, but then he just kept working the same spot over and over. I'm sure he was just working out kinks but it wasn't very enjoyable so I thought the body would be better. Boy was...More

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.
