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.

In just 1 hr i was offered massage, sex maasage, ladies massage and the likes no less than 10 times and some even by women! It was very frustrating. The overall atmosphere of the place is good though. You can take a quick stroll down the road and thats it.

The pedestrian part of Nanjing Lu is a fun place to walk through. Plenty of shopping and eateries ranging from street food to proper restaurants. On a weekend it is extremely busy. If you are Caucasian be ready to be approached by people offering watches, bags, ladies and massage. Don't get scammed, just tell theme a firm, polite - NO... More

You could probaby find anything you want on Nanjing road depending on where you are. Lots of high end stores but lots of local spots as well selling pastries, scarves, etc. If I wasn't in a time crunch, I would have enjoyed exploring the lanes and radiate from the main road. There are peddlers like every city but a quick... More

this is the best place to enjoy the mix between capitalism brought by western influence and oriental culture, just bear with the annoying massage offers.

Hawkers, scammers, cheap souveniers and street food abound in this area just off the dock for the cruise ships. Dodge the tour groups of tourists of various nationalities. Dodge the hawkers selling junk toys. Beware of chinese "students" offering a guinuine tea experience or an opportunity to practice their english. Don't take photos for local young people. It's not "being... More

Nanjing Lu (Lu=Road) is the happening place in Shanghai. This street has malls, individual stores, restaurants, and just a general vibrancy that you do not want to miss. All the top brands are represented very well and just to see the decor of the stores (windows) is a treat. Easy place to just walk and soak it in.

The streets is filled with hordes of crowds from as early as 12pm in the noon up until late night. It is a long road. You can start all the way from JingAn Temple > Nanjing West Road > Nanjing East Ped. St. > Nanjing East Rd. > The Bund. That would cover most of the busiest shopping area in... More

Not necessarily unique, this is still a nice place to walk around and soak up Shanghai. Shoppers rejoice, you will probably find a store for everyone during a walk down Nanjing Lu. Lots of western chains are around here so I didn't find it much different than a place like London or NYC, but it's still a cool place to... More
