Tour details

Explore one of Shanghai's most notable and beautiful areas- Shanghai French Concession- in this walking tour.


This public walking tour in French Concession is a must for anyone who wants to understand Shanghai’s colonial legacy because it not only gives you access to colonial mansions but also explains how the foreign concessions were formed and what impact they had on those that lived there.

See the Cathay Theater and learn about China’s golden film era. Visit the stunning Cercle Sportif Francais, which once served as a private palace for Mao Zedong. Visit Jinjiang Hotel, where the legendary feminist icon Dong Zhujun once presided. Weave your way through the French Concession’s Li Long back-streets and learn about how the Opium Wars and Taiping Rebellion determined the course of Shanghai's history. Visit a 1920’s hospital and discover the terrible mistake they made when treating tuberculosis. See where Shanghai’s White Russian refugees worshiped, and learn about the magical powers they attributed to the Archbishop that taught them.
