Modern, electric street filled with shops, eateries, and lovely restaurants tucked away up above the street level. Some can be tricky to find but are worth the effort.

Walking around Nanjing road, you will feel like you are in a westernized China quickly. The crowds of people will remind you that you are in china, but some of the shops, restaurants and cafes are a welcomed delight if you are visiting or living in china and miss a little bit of back home. Be sure to check out... More

Be careful about girls asking to buy them drinks. They are part of a team who are trying to deceiving you. You might think it's just a drink but as soon as you enter to the bar they would order in Chinese language without your permission some expensive drinks. Always be conscious about Chinese.

It was interesting to visit, but a bit much. There were a lot of pushy sellers on the street. BOO YOW (phonetic spelling of no thanks) will come out of your mouth a thousand times. Pretty lights and busy stores.

Summary: At one point, many years ago, this was the premier shopping area in Shanghai. Since then, hundreds of other malls have sprung up so Nanjing Lu now has mostly historical significance. It is still quite nice with shops, hotels, restaurants, and cafes on both sides. At night, single guys will be accosted by ladies of the night which can... More

Just a busy busy street...nothing much to do unless you have a lot of money. Delve back into the backstreet, you can find some local snacks, cheap eats.

Granted, I only explored the first several blocks of Nanjing Road going away from the Bund, but what I saw was enough to send me in the other direction. It was congested, with people and vehicles, and the goods were tacky. At the least, I suggest avoiding this section. The area around YU gardens seemed much more appealing.

An almost every time busy road for shopping and sightseeing. You can find many branded things here from electronic, food and fashions. Dedicated for pedestrian only, you can also enjoy surrounding buildings or just looking around here. Maybe its the largest pedestrian shopping street in China, must visit if you are in Shanghai

This is an amazing Street that is a must visit if you are visiting Shanghai. The shopping varies from theHigest End stores to the Fake Markets in the Areas as well. Dont ever pay the asked rate for anything at Nanjing Road Malls, unless you are in a Branded store. The mark ups they start with are inflated atleast 70-80%.... More
