Sinan Road is one of the best old streets in Shanghai to escape from the bustling city, with western style villas, small delicate shops and restaurants, in the shade of tall plane trees. Built in 1914 and named ‘Rue Massenet’ by the French Concession authorities to commemorate the famous French musician who died on August 13, 1912.
One of the Best Old Streets in Shanghai
Exquisite houses and tall plane trees edge both sides of the road. In addition to the common road features in the Former French Concession, Sinan Road has more than 20 various old Shanghai style garden houses which makes it a unique attraction. Besides, Sinan Road does not have buses nor neon signboards. The street lights are old-fashioned. All of these make Sinan Road one of the best and most beautiful old streets in Shanghai.
A Great Deal of Former Residences of Celebrities
Those garden houses used to be residences for celebrities. Former Chinese premier Zhou Enlai has lived at No. 73 Sinan Road, which is a Spanish-style garden house. Moreover, Chinese Peking opera artist Mei Langfang and Chinese modern democratic revolutionaries Sun Yat-sen and his wife Soong Ching-ling also have lived in Sinan Road. These residences are still well preserved and can be visited.
