Shanghai French Concession is located in Xiuhui and Luwan districts. It is the earliest, largest and most prosperous among the four French Concessions in China from 1849 until to 1946. With the politics, shopping and dining, the entertainment is guarantee here. The Shanghai French Concession is a must-see for tourists.

We are glad we picked to stay in this area. It is beautiful and full of old world charm. Boutiques, restaurants and lots of walking to appreciate this area. There is a wonderful French Patisserie that we ate breakfast at every day.

I just love the atmosphere of the beautiful tree lined streets. When you venture off the main streets there are amazing sites and interesting shops.

We visited this area at night and it was just beautiful. Wander around the alleys comprising shops, bars and restaurants and soak up the atmosphere. Shanghai is very cosmopolitan compared to the rest of China and this area is testimony to that.

Don't waste your time. There's nothing remotely interesting about this area. It's already faded from memory.
