Ride under a leafy archway of plane trees in the French Concession, admire French style mansions and drive trough these lively backstreets to relive the atmosphere of “Paris de l’Orient”.
Striking contrasts and a riot of colours await as you enter the famous Nanjing Road and its flood of dazzling modern ads and neon lights. It’s one of the best place to get a bit snap-happy and immortalise your evening fun.

Drive down this famous row of iconic colonial-era buildings and get hooked by the magnificent Pudong Skyline (also known as “Lujiazui Skyline“) on the left side and a stream of colonial buildings of different architectural styles including Gothic, Baroc and Renaissance on the other side.
The former “Avenue Joffre” also known as Huaihai road, one of the most upscale shopping streets in the city, is also not to be missed on your way back to the Former French Concession.
