French Concession
Shanghai has always been China’s most cosmopolitan city. After the first Opium War (1839–1842), the city was divided into foreign concessions and entered somewhat of a Golden Age, with a thriving nightlife scene, an active film industry, and a booming economy. After the Japanese invasion of Shanghai in World War II and, soon after, the founding of the People’s Republic of China, most of the concessions disappeared—theFrench Concession is the only one that retains its old name. Its quiet streets are still lined with imported London plane trees, and its regal houses, in architectural styles like French and Spanish Renaissance and Art Deco, are still intact. This is the perfect neighborhood to take in what remains of Old Shanghai.
