Itinerary Features

Many tourists got interested at the former French Concession in Shanghai, but maybe would think one day walking in this vast area is kind of tired. We have 2 half day tour itineraries specially designed to guide tourists to enjoy the essence of the well protected areas in the East Part or West Part in the former French Concession. Here is for the West Part of the famous French Town in Shanghai. This part still keeps its original style, has not been deeply developed for the commercial purpose.

 

The former French Concession, also known as French Town, is the highlight for many tourists to Shanghai. The French Concession existed in Shanghai from 6 April 1849 until 1946, reputedly the worlds largest French Concession. Now pleasant tree-lined streets, long and complicated alleyways and many fine old houses in the area (Most historic buildings have a bronze plaque that details their original use.) still retain an air of the "Paris of the East", delivering much of what this fabled city promises.

 

It is a famous fashionable area in China and a fantastic place for spending leisure time. Now its also become the citys hottest and hippest neighborhood, where a lot of  celebrities ornate old villas have been renovated and opened for visitors, many old houses, even whole neighbourhoods have been renovated and reimagined, converted to cafes, restaurants, boutiques and galleries. Trendy bars and clubs multiply like mushrooms after a rainstorm. Get away from the busy streets, you can spend hours wandering in the sylvan streets and narrow alleyways, passing tudor houses nestled in beautiful gardens, resting in a cafe or dining in a restaurant, enjoy the boutiques or browsing through the endless art galleries and photographic studios. This Guided Walk Tour would bring you the special charming form of the French Concession, for sure it is an absolutely unique urban experience.
