Former Residence of Zhou Enlai
Zhou Enlai (Zhou En Lai), the former Chinese Prime Minister from 1949 until he passed away in 1976, is seen by many people as one of China's greatest leaders in twentieth century.
A keen military strategist and an excellent diplomat, Zhou was a key figure in negotiations between the U.S and China in the 1970s.
Zhou Enlai's former residence (Zhougongguan) has always been well kept and is located on No.73 Sinan Road, which was in the heart of the former French Concession area.
It is a three-storey house with a strong French architectural flavor. There are some great black and white photos in the rooms documenting events that took place here!
The house is surrounded by a pretty garden with heavy vegetation and wicker chairs and has a very colonial feel about it. A visit here is a real trip back in time and it's usually very quiet and peaceful.
