Location

Fifteen minutes west of the Hongqiao Transportation Hub, connecting the west of the city through road, bus, train and air links, is the tree-lined, family friendly district of Huacao. The area offers high quality accommodation and western amenities with the majority of expats choosing to live in one of eight gated compounds which are within walking distance of The British International School Shanghai Puxi (BISS) established here in 2004.

The area effortlessly blends locals with a growing International community. It is a common sight around town, to see expats shopping in the local wet market and adopting local forms of transport including bikes, scooters and tuk tuks. 

Huacao is convenient for those working in Longbai, Qingpu, Songjiang, Jiading, Hongqiao, Gubei, Minhang  and Suzhou (Jiangsu) due to its proximity to highways'.

Shopping & Recreation

Within Huacao district and walking distance of the British International School Shanghai (BISS) there are a variety of retail outlets.


Fashion Park mall is an open-air shopping mall centrally located on Yunle Lu and Jinfeng Lu. It caters for all your senses with restaurants and bars where you can dine alfresco when the weather permits. There are ice cream parlours, cafes and bakeries, a cinema, a climbing wall, soft play and an exciting Forest School. There are even plans for a city farm where children can enjoy growing and learning about plants. 


Zhu Di Park is a large green space within Huacao close to Rose Lane Garden community. During Spring and Summer, families enjoy lazy weekends in the park picnicking, flying kites with locals, joining in Tai Chi exercises and on warm evenings watching or participating in the public dancing.


In addition to the shopping mall and park there are local wet markets where fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, fish and eggs are on sale. There are a variety of supermarkets selling western foods and household goods as well as a selection of cafes and restaurants.
