Old renovated local houses in small lanes with small shops and restaurants. Suitable for pub goers and first timers in China. Overrated attractions for tourists and bored expats.

Tian zi fang is a couple of streets packed into a cute little shopping area. Streets are narrow and there are cafes as well.

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
