The French Concession is a collection of multicultural restaurants, German, Italian, French etc, with a great range of food, drinks and beers to help you get away from the Chinese influence. It's best to get there by taxi as the fares are very reasonable.

When you go through the former French Concession it feels like you have been transported from China to France. The buildings and the style of the area almost seem to have been transplanted. The area is very lovely with lots of cafes and shops, many...More

Did our tourist visit here. It’s been renovated and has very few original building features. But harkens back to the elegance of the heydays. Loved all the tree covered roads. Cute boutiques and great variety of restaurants! We ate at Din Tai Fung. Though it’s...More

Passed a few hours here. Lots of eating places in house or on the street. Whilst quite "buzzy" not to the level of Thailand, Hong Kong or the rest of Asia

The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a
carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled
with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area
below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most
fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can
afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and
