    I enjoyed doing some last-minute souvenir shopping in Tianzifang. It's a nice little area with all the usual Chinese souvenirs on offer (tea, silk, jade, pottery, etc). Worth popping by. Go early, it'll be quieter.

    Nice green park in the middle of the Former French concession. Perfect place for a picnic and some yoga. Many local people are coming here to dance and do exercise. Highly recommend!

    If your looking around a city for shopping experiences that are markets with some good quality items mixed in with fake or cheap stuff here it is.
    There are also restaurants and bars in an area which is more up market that the Fake markets at the Science Museum station.
    It even has a Starbuck.
    Easiest way to get here is by Metro which 3 Yuan from Nanjing Road were we staying. Works like the London Tube map wise, is clean and safe.
    Ticket machines are in English but some only take coins.

    Great to walk along this HuaiHai Road. Historical mansions along the road. It has several great shopping malls and an upper end shopping street (both sides).

    Just a hundred steps away from the Huaihai Road station of the Metro, this beautiful row of French villas turned into bars and restaurants entices visitors from around the globe.

    Starbucks here is truly quaint as it is every inch, French. The paths are nice and the ambience reminds us of the cultural strands that shaped Shanghai to what it is today.

    Snap a selfie in its lush gardens. Take delight in the vines that smolder the walls of some structures. The trees along the roads also make this charming community a haven for nature-lovers.

    The restaurants, though, are above mid in terms of pricing. Dishes and drinks are way too expensive so, have a full meal before heading there.

    When I clicked on directions in this TA it opened in google maps needless to say the location was not accurate as it normally is in China 2 out of 10) in most cases. This house museum is in the former French Concession it is down the street from the Zhou Enlai historical residence. Find the Starbucks on the corner (it will be on the left side of the street coming down from the Boxing Cat Brewery) turn right go about 100 yards or so. There is a police station right across the street on the corner. The walk through takes less than an hour. They are checking health codes so have it ready, know your passport number, and your Chinese SIM number. Look at my pictures.

    Visited this area on a lovely sunny day and it was a very pleasant area to walk around in. Nice tree lined streets, cafes, and small independent shops. You can see where Shanghai gets the ‘Paris of Asia’ description from around here.

    The cross streets off of Maoming Road between Huaihai and Middle Ya'an Road are filled with dozens/scores of very creative independent dress designers and clothing makers. If you want haute couture (and are Asian size) there are many many wonderful original designers and shops. It feels like New York, with sophisticated start ups and cafes, bars and even comedy clubs. Neighborhoods like this one are what makes Shanghai such a world-class, cutting edge city.

    Beautiful glass wares on exhibition. They seems to host a permanent exhibition on the top floor. That exhibition was okay, not really that interesting.

    The main level seems to host a rotating exhibition. When we went it was featuring Lino Tagliapietra. The exhibition was absolutely breathtaking.

    I thought it would be full of acts I've seen before but no! It was great. there were some "old" acts but even those had twists. And each act was unique and so well done. Really really recomend it.

    We stopped here for a one-hour foot massage to help us deal with a 17-hour layover following a night flight. It worked wonderfully. We both conked out within seconds and enjoyed a restful snooze. Lovely decor, thoughtful staff. The only quibble was that we had a terrible time finding it and no one we reached by phone had enough English to help us out. We obviously hadn't planned ahead well enough.

    If you are exploring the Former French Concession, make some time to visit this former residence of Ba Jin, as it is set in one of the most historical and romantic parts of the city. Exploring the house and gardens won't take you longer than 20 minutes and you can see how a historic figure used to live in Shanghai. Very interesting!

    It is amazing the positions that are displayed. There was a great variety of acts illustrating flexibility. You are not allowed to take pictures (probably due to flash photography. Would be nice to have videos available for purchase in order to relive the amazing performance.

    This house museum gives you you a very detailed and interesting background to one of the founders of the modern Communist Party - Zhou Enlai. It was a very spartan life they led, and the house has been maintained much as it was in his time here. Lovely garden to enjoy, and it is free entry.
