Once known as the ’Paris of the East’, the former French Concession is one of the few foreign concessions that still retain the air of old Shanghai. With its tree-lined boulevards, numerous shopping and dining streets, it is a popular tourist destination.

The district also houses several former residences of grand figures of Chinese history. Sun Yat Sen’s former residence on Xiangshan Road has been converted into a museum. Zhou Enlai’s former residence on Sinan Road has also been turned into a museum offering visitor’s a history of the Communist revolution in China.

If you’re interested in Art Deco and Palladian-style architecture, pay a visit to Changle Lu and Julu Lu where several impressive houses in the 1920’s style still stand. The notable Russian Orthodox Mission Church is perhaps the most prominent with its blue dome.

And if your sweet tooth is hankering for delicious tidbits, Huaihai Lu with its French-style cafes and eateries offer a great variety of cakes and bread. Huaihai Lu and the area around Maoming Lu and Shaanxi Lu are more high-end than the famous shopping street Nanjing Lu. This area is also less crowded and offer designer boutiques and up-market department stores.
