French Concession

After the first Opium War, Shanghai was divided into foreign concessions. The French Concession is the only one that retains its old name, its streets lined in imported London plane trees and its large, Western–style houses and municipal buildings still intact. Among these is the grand 1905 French Renaissance–influenced building that’s now the Shanghai Arts and Crafts Museum. Come here for an overview of Chinese folk arts and to see artisans at work carving jade and doing needlepoint.
