What you'll do

Following Lily's Shanghai map, have a taste of FFC lifestyle.

This is a very personal style tour, unlike many traditional guided group I started it with the idea " To be your local friend", imagine to have a friend when you arrived at a new city, that's what I wanted when I travel.

So probably you won't learn too much knowledge of the history and I would not introduce you some places you would easily found on internet, I want to share my experience of a life in Shanghai and I would like to hear your story as well.

This tour is about communicating and making friends, it is about culture sharing and discovering.

If you are ready to drop a coffee and meet a brunch of new friends ,get some ideas of where to visit in shanghai and what is cool. this is for you.

_____________

We will meet in a brunch shop where we will spent 30~40 mins to enjoy our food and get to know each other. We can share our stories of traveling and of course everything about shanghai .

After that, we'll spend 1.5 hours exploring some small alleys in the Former French Concession, and in the process, we'll go to some of the secret shops where you can buy yourself a gift or take some pictures. you can also enjoy the art in the Independent Gallery, to see those history marks in some old shanghainese apartment.

During the trip I will introduce you some historical stories of the French concession.

At the end of the experience, you can get a copy of Lily's Shanghai map, it contains my selection of cafes, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, shops, teahouses...etc.(JPEG received by Email or phone).

Generally it will be a mix group with people speaking different languages, I'll use English as the main language when there are most of people who can speak English. Otherwise I'll use both Chinese & English to host and translate for any need.

Where you'll be

FFC, The Former French Concession, has a very extensive history and it turned out to be the most lively area in Shanghai. It has a very laid back atmosphere where you can find a lot of cafes/designer shops/former residences get along with those old buildings where people still living in it. It is a place where you can see the traces of time and mix of cultures.
People who live in Shanghai for real never go to the bund, they always hang around in the FFC. And that's true!
