It's a shopping tour, but it's so much more - it an education for anyone new to China to understand the people, the culture and the country . It can be uncomfortable being outside your comfort zone in a different country, with people that speak a different language and have different cultural complexities. MJ educates, prepares and arms the group... More

We had MJ as a guide for a packed 5hrs in Shanghai. Usually one to find my own way in a city, I wasn't overly keen when hearing we'd been booked on a tour with a guide by our hosts on our business trip. Visions of an open top bus type affair came to mind. How wrong I was. MJ... More

I was referred to this tour through a friend, and I had the awesome privilege of having MJ as my tour guide. I am a frugal traveller so I went in just for the experience. However, the quality, variety, and price of the merchandise made me buy more than I expected without the buyer's remorse. As a Midwestern American, bargaining... More

I had a great day - was extremely lucky to be on my own - MJ is extremely knowledgeable and easy to spend time with. I had clothes made and bought material at the fabric market, had multi focal glasses made and found a fabulous furniture shop at the flower market (I'm going back next year to do serious shopping...

I arrived first thing in the morning to Shanghai after a 12 hour flight from NZ. MJ from Shopping Tours Shanghai had arranged for a driver to meet me at the airport to take me to the start of the tour. Although tired from my flight I was instantly energised by MJ's awesome personality and expertise with all things Shanghai!... More

Today I went on a shopping tour of Shanghai with MJ and cannot recommend it enough. I chose to take a 4 hour tour with a private driver to maximize the time that we had.

After initially thinking I wasn't much of a shopper... your tour totally changed me! Shopping Tours Shanghai have taken the impossibly hard part out of getting the best quality items at a fraction of the price. The awesome ground work they have done to find the best possible deals from the most deserving retailers has made China accessible to the... More

Have visited Shanghai for work for 12 years regularly and have always shopped by myself. I had a free day and thought I would like to do something different. So treated myself to a personal shopping tour. MJ responded quickly and asked what I was interested in. I went with the personal driver option. I would highly recommend this option... More

Staying in Jing'an

Neighborhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
