Located in Hongkou District, Duolun Road is a peaceful taste of the past behind busy Sichuan Road. The villas which line this pedestrianized road, are attractive examples of the Chinese and International architecture styles of this former American concession area.
Today the road is home to a fascinating selection of art and antique shops as well as the more usual souvenirs stalls selling Chinese curios and collectibles.
Duolun Road was once a popular haunt of many eminent figures from Shanghai's past. Life size bronze figures of some of the road's former patrons are poised at intervals around the beautifully paved road and add some extra historical perspective.
