    French Concession in Shanghai

    I walked through an area that is famous in Shanghai known as the French Concession. Many expats live in this area as it is quite upscale with beautiful old houses, towering trees and condos/malls as well. The French concession was once designated exclusively for the French back in the 1800's. Since I like the European architecture I was in my zone here. We also visited Fuxing park.


    The trees are just starting to bloom to fullness.











    It was so nice to be in a green space as there are no parks near where I live.

    This is a mall.. very upscale mall with some unique stores.



    Not sure what was going on here, but a lot of people were standing around.


    Thanks for following this journey with me. Time to get back to work.

    What a total waste of bandwidth.
    Inane flatulence at best.

    The commentary is derisory; "

    "Not sure what was going on here, but a lot of people were standing around." Very enlightening.

    "This is a mall" WOW.

    Please try and do better next time.

    Great stuff. Love the colonial flavour in the first pics.

    This is the first time I've seen a bunch of pics that makes Shanghai look 'neat & tidy'

    ^Thanks, Pat. Many places of Shanghai are pretty tidy. Go to Pudong and you'll think you are in the suburbs of an American town.

    ^^Well it is the financial and economic hub of China, so you find more wealth and jobs here compared to other cities.

    ^ A Canon Rebel EOS T3. I bought it second hand last summer, but hadn't used it much up until recently. It is big and heavy compared to some other cameras. It does take good pics, and I love the zoom on it as I bought a lens for it at the same time.
