It's original name is Fukaisen Road, and the density of historic villas on Wukang Road is probably second to none in Shanghai. Those plane trees will tell you the legends of the celebrities in old Shanghai.
It will be very nice to take s stroll on WuKang road because there are so many beautiful western houses and chic shops. I went there in a rainy day, but I still felt so cozy to spend my Sunday afternoon on Wukang road.

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.
