This area has narrow streets with cute little shops. Overall the shops are very clean, modern and tidy. No strange dirty shops here. You can buy a lot of things but it is mainly focussed on parfume, food and drings, watches, hand bags, souvenirs, ......More

My husband and I wandered into this area to see the shops and cafes. Very adorable street with lots of interesting stores and items. Also stopped for coffee and dessert at one of the cafes. Great way to spend a few hours in the afternoon.

Spent 3 hours here around noon time. The atmosphere was vibrant. Very talented artists displaying their work in shops or on the streets. Some nice cafes and bars to enjoy the atmosphere. I'd recommend this!

I walked here through some fascinating side streets and I wasn't disappointed - I love the vibe of the tiny maze like streets - lots of local artists, photographers, food spots etc. It's super crowded and can move rather slowly at times. I would recommend...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
