Though the original one were constructed in 1920s and 1930s. Most of them have been reconstructed brick by brick while making sure that they have been turned 90° from their original position. Only the one's which have been turned into museum's are still original. Nevertheless, the mansions are quite beautiful and now have lots of good cafes, bars and restaurants

First time in this restaurant in the French Concession area. Absolutely love the old architecture, garden, the mood, decor, lighting, food! Have to return again soon!

A nice find out from the hustle and bustle of Shanghai life. Beautifully landscaped gardens. Bungalows housing hotels and eateries. There are cafes and restaurants too where you can stop for a meal, a quick bite or afternoon tea. Worth a visit if you are in the vicinity.

These are old restored buildings that have been turned into an entertainment area - very nice. However we came mid-day - there seemed to be no body around; nobody in the restaurants; no shopping area - so no atmosphere. Didn't really like it

It's interesting only if you' re into photography and architecture. It is a clean and westernised place, where you can relax and have a cup of coffee, but nothing extraordinary!

This Sinan area is quite exclusive, it is well maintained and has a touch of history as well. You will find quietness and feeling of the past here. It's easily accessible by walk and nicely between Tianzi Fang and Xintiandi. This is part of the tour when you explore French Concession. There is a party museum and quite elegant restaurant...

Sinan mansion is a long strip of wonderful huge homes. You usually connect Sinan mansion from a walk from Fuxing park then Taikang art center. In Sinan mansion you can locate the Zhou Enlai and Sun Yet Sen former residence

A cluster of restaurants, bars and 'galleries' in a newly opened area, part of a revamped old Shanghai mansion now becoming a multi complex. When we went, it was having a beer festival with lots of beer booths offering a very expat atmosphere. It was like a mini Xintiandi ... If you enjoy a better feel of Shanghai local relaxing... More

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
