French Concession

In the heart of Puxi (old Shanghai), it’s hard to believe you can step away from the traditional Chinese buildings and side streets and find yourself in a setting so European you’ll wonder what happened. Shanghai’s interesting history with French and British colonialism has left some stunning architecture in its wake. The French Concession has become one of the most sophisticated areas to hang out in the city with tree-lined streets, art galleries, boutique shops, and cafés to explore. Starting at South Huangpi Road Metro Station and just wandering from there is the ideal way to see the area.
