If you want a quick taste of local shopping and food then this is the place for you. It can get quite crowded though as expected. A load of shops, both foreign and local, and food stalls that serve snacks that locals love - milk tea, takoyaki, Chinese dimsum, roast duck / white chicken, mooncake (we went in August), beef...

Very crowded street with plenty of upscale shopping malls and shops including lot of western high end brands. If you are not into shopping would still recommend walking through from riverside Bund to the People's Square during evening time as most of the buildings are lighted & there are plenty of video walls and light shows etc. If you're walking...

East Nanjing Road is a pedestrian section of this famous street where you can find many shops and thousands of people everywhere. This is the classic street to walk day and night, just looking at people, shopping, or just walking by heading to the Bund. West Nanjing Road is the upscale section of the street, where you can find most... More

Many cities in the world seem to have a street like this ... horrible .. designed to make it tourist hell! It is pedestrianised which makes it busier and we tourists have to jostle with the crowds and avoid every scam artist and super salesman in Shanghai. We were followed step for step by these men and women waving plastic... More

I was in a hotel right on Nanjing Road which is busy day and night. There is excellent shopping, most of it western, but some very nice shops selling typically Chinese goods, like silk and jade and jewelry. The shops are overstaffed and one feels rather uncomfortable browsing. I'm not a great shopper but i can see there is much... More

Before arriving to Shanghai, I read about tea tasting scams on Tripadvisor. It was about people who would stop you close to Bund on Nanjing road, would seem charming and friendly, would ask you to take their picture and would want to be friends with you. Then they would take you to some place where they would charge you a... More

It is a big street full of shops and people. Unbelievable crowded, it is like you are in a middle of labor strike. I am just not a fan of this place.

This is an interesting place to see - it's basically a high street in Shanghai. There's nothing too interesting on the street itself, but wandering down a few of the alleys you will find card game clubs, street food and other interesting things. Be careful on this street however, as it attracts the kind of people who will take advantage... More
