Description

When the Treaty of Nanjing was signed during the Qing Dynasty, parts of Shanghai were conceded to the French, the US and Britain. On this land each respective occupier had its own influence on everything from architecture to cultural outlets.

Perhaps none of these foreign powers, however, had as much influence on the city as the French, in their ''French Quarter''. At its zenith it stretched all the way from the Bund to Xiangyang Road.

Though the French are long gone (at least as occupiers), the area has retained those distinctive characteristics. It is dotted with wonderful French-style villas, boutiques, restaurants, bakeries and art galleries.
