quiet and pretty tree lined streets, lots of little clothes and music shops to keep you occupied. Cafes and Bars are expensive but they have a lot of choice of beers
I had so much fun walking around the Old French Concession. Even though I only walked around for about an hour, there were so many cute shops and restaurants to look at. Our tour guide also showed us around the alleys and the amazing architecture. If you have an hour or two to kill, definitely go here.

The French Concession offers lots of international offerings for your taste buds, but it doesn't come cheap. You can find French, Brazilian, Turkish, Mexican, Indian and Arabic restaurants. There are also lots of Night Clubs around as well. Definitely a place to check out if you like the night life.
