LuWan Introduction

Luwan District is a district located in central Shanghai, China. It has an area of 8.05 km² and population of 350,000 as of 2001.
Luwan district is located directly south of People's Square. The northern part of Luwan includes o­ne of the best sections of Huaihai Road, famous for its international fashion shops and high-class restaurants.
Luwan is a part of the old French Concession area, o­ne of the most prestigious sections of the city. It is famous for its boulevards. The plane trees lining the main streets were imported from France over 100 years ago. The district includes the historical residences of Sun Yat-sen, Mao Zedong, Zhou Enlai, Agnes Smedley and Mei Lanfang, among others. The district is named after "Lujia Wan", literally "Lu's Bay", formerly a bend in a local river which has since been covered up. The name survives in bus stops located near the former location of the bay.

LuWan Traffic

Hongqiao International Airport in western Shanghai, about 15 kilometers from the city center, handles all international flights. By taxi, the trip from the airport will take you about 30 min. to an hour. A new Shanghai International Airport in Pudong opened o­n October 1, 1999, although is not yet fully operational.
The base fare for every taxi in Shanghai is 11RMB. For this amount, you will get virtually anywhere within o­ne or two districts in the city – if you never have to wait at in traffic, the fare will not increase for the first 3 Kilometers.  However, the stand-still time will affect the fare, so if you are stuck in traffic the fare will still increase faster than 3K.  The base fare rises to 14RMB after 11pm.
The cheap price of the taxis and their convenience makes them extremely popular.  This is especially the case in the winter and o­n rainy days, when a taxi is virtually impossible to come by.  If you are staying in a hotel and are desperate, I recommend calling your concierge and having a taxi ordered to your location.  This costs and extra 4RMB, and an additional 15RMB if you are traveling o­ne way from Puxi to Pudong (for the driver’s return) – but this would be completely worth it if you have no other choice! Also keep in mind that traffic can be horrible in Shanghai, so when you need to arrive o­n time, the subway could be more reliable.
