During this fun and informative walking tour, you’ll be joined by a private guide on a stroll through the leafy, European-built neighborhood. Discover hidden charms, such as art deco mansions and French-style parks, as you explore the city’s unique mix of old European and classic Shanghainese.

What to Expect
Shanghai, a vibrant Chinese city, is perpetually at the crossroads of old and new, torn between development and preservation. This dynamic is apparent in the former French Concession, a hip and historic quarter once home to French consuls and expatriates that still keeps its colonial character. Go deep into the colorful Chinese port city’s history and heritage on this guided walking tour, exploring modern China’s growth through an in-depth visit to the French Concession’s trendy, tree-lined streets. Your guide points you toward hidden gems, such as art deco mansions, classical theaters, and a French-style park that’s now a nightlife hub. Learn about the city’s changes firsthand while roaming the French-built quarter. Discover how it transformed from an Old World foreign enclave to a contemporary hotspot for young Shanghainese. Flexible departure times adapt to your schedule, and your guide can arrange to meet you in your hotel lobby for added convenience.
