Why Shanghai?

Shanghai is China’s largest city and its economic heart. Ever since the boom in the early ‘90s, the city has become more and more international as well as important. Besides the financial and industrial sectors, it is also an important cultural center of the “Middle Kingdom”. Hutong School is conveniently located in Shanghai’s French concession, where European architecture meets the modern Chinese skyline of the Jing’an business district.


If you're looking for a good coffee place to start your morning, a Chinese or Western restaurant for your lunch break, and a bar to get your after work drinks, then The French Concession is the place for you! The trees along the streets give you the feeling that you are in Paris, even though Hutong School is in the center of Shanghai. Spend your spare time in the old alleyways, browsing through endless shops, cafes and bars. Your time in Shanghai will be unforgettable.
