Walk around the Former Shanghai French Concession

Walking around the former Shanghai French Concession, starting from Wanping Road, through Huaihai Middle Road, Wukang Road, Gaoan Road, and Hunan Road, along the way.

The old buildings along the street and the paulownia trees along the roadside shaded us from the sun.

The Shanghai French Concession was a foreign concession in Shanghai, from 1849 until 1943, which progressively expanded in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The concession came to an end in 1943 when the French State under German pressure signed it over to the pro-Japanese Reorganized National Government of China in Nanjing.

For much of the 20th century, the area covered by the former French Concession remained the premier residential and retail district of Shanghai, and was also one of the centres of Catholicism in China.

Despite re-development over the last few decades, the area retains a distinct character and is a popular tourist destination.
