Strictly for history buffs only. If you are 50/50 on taking the tour - i would suggest to drop it and head off shopping instead. The walking tour was pleasantly paced but it was too long at 2.5hours. Most of the items being discussed were not really that interesting - they bring you to old hotels/bldgs and tell you the history of that place. Not so interesting after the first 10mins.

The only place in Shanghai with tree lined blocks. The architecture reminds everyone of Paris, and plenty of food options. Try the Pancake house.

The French Concession is lovely. A quiet oasis in very hectic Shanghai. Lots of refurbished historic buildings, beautiful cobbled streets and alleyways. Speciality shopping and plenty of character. Restaurant and cafes good too. Lots of art galleries.
