The French Concession is now very trendy for local Chinese and French living altogether in Shanghai and are pleased to enjoy a relaxing moment of sharing a glass of Champagne or a good table like they used to do in the past.
The French Quarter is a small area in strake contrast to China. There are quirky streets to explore and lots of outdoor coffee shops and restaurants. The architecture is typically French and there is also a French bakery.

Luxe condos house people who can afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park provides the area with green space and is also home to
Shanghai Fashion Week twice a year. It’s not all glitter and glamour, though, as the rise of Danshui Road has given the Xintiandi area a shot of toned-down character. Small bars and cafes, mostly owned by locals, have people hanging out in a formerly quiet, unassuming part of the neighborhood.

The French Concession as an area is quite big. Therefore there are quite a few relevant Metro stations. You can consider HengShanLu station. Again you would want to check out the map. Whilst in Shanghai you can use the Metroman App to manoeuvre the metro. It's very user friendly
