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.

The Oxford street of SHANGHAI

The place has all the top shops but prepare to pay over the odds nicely lit at night with lots of choice. Very busy high street

Do you like crowded streets, colorful people, window shopping and a long stroll, Yes, this is the right place for you. there is a fun train (mini-tram type) too in case you feel tired and want to sit and view both sides of this crowded and packed street. If you are a westerner, you are sure to have trouble with... More

If you need it or want it, you most likely can find a store that sells it on this street. The street stands from the subway to the waterfront.

Great place to walk around and check out stores like Uni Qlo, Gap, and H&M. Easy walk to the Bund and plenty of places to eat and people watch. If you are staying at the Westin, it's a short 5 min walk.

Going to meet someone for a music concert that started at 5:00 PM. I decided to walk from People's Square to the Bund where the restaurant is. Crowds everywhere. Out of the crowd, not once, not twice, not three times, but four times someone walked up to me and asked if I wanted "a sex massage". I didn't.

Nanjing Lu mostly visited for the pedestrian street. The place is an utter mess with stores that are selling overpriced items that no one in their right mind would buy for the prices asked for. Outside you have Pimps and Touts to deal with. Lucky for me I checked this place on Tripadvisor before I went there. Within the first... More

This is one of the best pedestrian streets I have ever seen. It has a lot of flavor to it. I was there in the evening and the lights and the whole atmosphere is just great. Many restaurants in the area, with different range of price and quality. Just go there, browse, stroll at your pace and enjoy the crowd.... More

Nanjing road is quite good for shopping, but you should be careful of what you are buying and what you are paying. Like all of these shopping districts. Qipu Road is cheaper, but it is diabolical trying to get around without being hounded. There are many shops in the area, some good restaurants and bars. If you end up in... More

I've been coming back to this place almost d very week whenever I visit Shanghai. It's not because it's the prettiest sight but because it's a good place to see mix of Asian and western cultures in terms of food, people, shopping. For most, this crowded place is a no no or a one of experience. However, if you want... More

This place can be overwhelming for out of town tourists who has never experienced the hustle and bustle of the city life. Great place to bring your tourist friends in the evenings once the lights of the street and neon billboard lights has been hit, stand by the beginning of the pedestrian street from the subway station exit and just...
