About the tour
*What is "French Concession"?
*The Former French Concession was a foreign concession area in Shanghai, China from 1849 until 1943.For much of the 20th century, this area remained the premier residential and retail district of Shanghai, and was also one of the centers of Catholicism in China. Despite re-development over the last few decades, the area retains a distinct character, and is a popular tourist destination.
As they say, “Paris ne s’est pas fait en un jour!” (“Paris was not made in a day!”) And by the same token, neither was the French Concession of Shanghai. In 3 hours, hear captivating stories about the French Concession and its colorful past as you walk across this quaint neighborhood. Learn about the celebrities and commoners alike who once strolled down these streets, and find yourself becoming a part of the legacy of this place.
