It is one of the busiest streets that I have been so far. There is always something to watch... ballroom dancing, line dance , cultural dance shows, hookers going after single men. It is always crowded and noisy. I did not see many police officers around and still you feel safe. It is a must place to be when you... More

full of shopping and food courts. You must visit Nanjing road if you come to Shanghai - even if you have only one day. The street is huge - there are police and soldiers everywhere and it is very unique.

I do understand how other trip advisor reviewers say "this is just an ordinary shopping street" which by all means it is.....BUT what tourists need to take away from this is the rich history behind this whole area in general! Starting off in the late 1800s and slowly progressing into the busiest street in the world if you ask me!... More

Watch out for scammers and hookers, especially the ones who want you to follow them to a side street, but otherwise this is a nice place to walk and enjoy when the weather is good. All of the stores are the same as the USA and you can find bargains in some. Fake name brands are illegal but plentiful. If... More

Nothing special about this street - the main shopping street is the same anywhere- no matter if it is in Europe, Asia or elsewhere. The most important thing- read the reviews about the TEA SCAM- I will not describe it as the story is absolutely the same with everybody- do not be the fools like we did :(

Beware the tea scam. Friendly locals invite you to go somewhere for tea. Don't go! We had a very nasty experience that ended with police and general nastiness. The scammers are very accomplished and skilful, and the tea is substandard. There are many friendly locals, but beware the tea scam - don't go!

This one was a hard one to review. First, let's look at the positives. The surroundings are nice during the day and you get experience a decent shopping experience although you might get hassled here and there. Unfortunately, young people in their early 20s will most likely ask you if you want to join a "tea ceremony". I had already... More

it is fun street between People's square and Bund. Fun to walk and do people watching or shopping. Every imaginable store you name is located on the street. Apple, Nike, Cartier etc.etc are located here. Fun was to see M&M Chocolate's multiple level store. It is the first M7M store I have seen. Hershey's chocolate also has a store.

This is a long pedestrian shopping street in Shanghai. There are a wide variety of stores to pick from and lots of western restaurants available. The area was too crowded for me, and it got very tiring having someone show us a laminated card and offer us "rolex/luggage" every 5 minutes. They were very easy to walk away from, but... More

Nanging East is a pedestrianized street. If you want to go shopping, this is the place to go. Stores ranges from the tackiest to the most expensive designer brands. There's also restaurants along the road and not just Chinese - there's Muslim, Indian, KFC, McDonald's, etc.
