AboutShanghai Old French Concession is the area of once designated for the French. Today, the area"s central Huaihai Road is a busy shopping street, but the treelined avenues and their many Tudor mansions still retain an air of the "Paris of the East".
Old French Concession Streets get away from the busy streets and explore the area between Julu Lu to the north and Huai Hai Lu running through the center, plus Mao Ming Lu and surrounding area to the south of Huai Hai Lu. Pleasant tree-lined streets and local Shanghainese bustle, combined with a growing number of trendy boutiques and restaurants. Chang Le Lu and Xin Le Lu are rapidly becoming the places to find small designer clothing shops. Interesting architecture built with French and Belgian money and showing mixed Chinese-European styles.
