Not too much of a tourist trap. We shopped, ate and drank, and enjoyed people watching as the locals and visitors went about their day. Touts were not too prevalent and always take a polite "no" in good grace.

You can probably find just about anything on this pedestrian shopping street. There are many restaurants, bakeries, and stores of every sort. There is even a little tram that will take you up and down the street should your feet grow tired. It is crowded, as most everything is in China, but it is a broad street so it is... More

Went there on a rainy day, still got lots of tourists there; It is a nice place for photo shooting, nice old buildings, lots of wires hanging above and clothes!! Didn't really shop there because they are there obviously for tourists, but i would say things are not too over priced actually, some are, but you can always bargain!

I read a couple of negative reviews for this area saying that it is touristy. Well what do you expect? Soho in London, pier 39 in San Francisco, Champs Eleysee in Paris etc. are all touristy but all great, it is what it is. Just go there and enjoy the little boutique shops, bars and the lane atmosphere. I visited... More

Great shops, great restaurants, just a fun area to spend an afternoon or evening at. Shops are unique with art and jewelry. Prices were consistent with other China markets. There is even a market with fresh fruit and vegetables as well as meats. Interesting to stroll through and see how many vegetables you don't recognize. Colorful display makes for wonderful... More

This is an interesting little network of streets with some interesting shops. I found this area to be much better for shopping than many of the markets in Shanghai. While you do see some of the usual cheap Chinese souvenir junk, you stand a better chance here of finding something more original. At least it's a bit more interesting to... More
