Didier is a wonderfull guide in Shanghai - he knows a lot about the city but also about Chinese people, Shanghai story and Art Deco history in Shanghai - an unforgettable moment which made me sad to leave Shanghai at the end of the week....
We visited Beijing, Li Jiang, Shangri La, Yangtze River and Xi'an. All of the guides in each city were knowledgeable and polite and conscientious. In the past we have taken cruises so this was quite different. We had a great time and the guides were...More

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.
