Add:Shaoxing Rd


This tree-shaded road sums up all that's great about the French Concession. Formerly known as Rue Victor-Emmanuel III, Shaoxing Road was once home to a community of Russian Jews and many publishing houses. Today, it attracts people with lovely teahouses and avant-garde galleries. It takes barely five minutes to walk from one end to the other, but dipping in and out of the various points of interest along the way could easily take a whole day.
