XuHui Introduction

Xuhui District has a land area of 54.76 km² and a population of 847,900 as of 2001.
The Xuhui District is centred o­n Xujiahui, after which it is named. Xujiahui was historically land owned by Ming dynasty bureaucrat and scientist Xu Guangqi, and later donated to the Roman Catholic Church. Being the core of Catholic Shanghai, the Xuhui District formed, together with neighbouring Luwan District, the former French Concession of Shanghai. Vestiges of the French influence can still be seen in the St. Ignatius Cathedral of Shanghai, Xuhui College, the Xujiahui Observatory, and some remaining boulevards and French-style districts.
Parts of today's Xuhui District were o­nce the premier residential districts of Shanghai. After the revolution, however, the large estates near Xujiahui were turned into factories. In the 1990s, the Shanghai municipal government developed the district as a commercial zone. Prominent commercial areas in the district include the former Xiangyang Crafts and Gifts Market, a haven for souvenirs and intellectual property-infringing products popular with overseas tourists. Xujiahui itself was redeveloped as a commercial centre, with a proliferation of large-scale shopping centres and department stores.
A number of former residences of prominent personalities remain, including Song Qingling and Sun Yat-sen's former residence. The educational tradition begun by Jesuits in Xujiahui continues with Shanghai Jiaotong University, the premier technical university in southern China. It has 10 sub-districts and two townships.
Xu jia hui is o­ne of the most crowded shopping area in Xu hui District. Shopping malls such as Gang hui Guang Chang and Tai Ping Yang are two of the most popular shopping mall in Xu Jia Hui

XuHui 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.
