Walk around Shanghai: Yongfu Rd. 上海永福路

On a beautiful sunny February day, walking from Yongfu road down to Huashan road. The area start from the Shanghai Library metro station, until the Jiao Tong University campus. It’s the block on the north side of HuaHai road. The area contains quite a few consulates(Iran, US, France, Germany), as well as a French kindergarten.


Strolling around you will also see the queues for french delicacies at Farine , coffee at Grains, and icecream at WIYF.

It is a typical Shanghai tree lined neighborhood, perhaps the most beautiful and certain the most quiet one. Walking around here you can experience a feeling unique to Shanghai: walking on a tree lined street, looking at european style villas build in the 30’s, while being in one of the fastest moving metropolis of our time…
