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.

Its the plave for you who want to shop in medium branded goods in Shanghai. The have wide pedestrian for you to walk. A lot of clothes shop, jade shop, and cafe for you to chill. They also have fancy shop but you will need to walk couple blocks.

I was expecting a good place for shopping, but what I found were retail chain stores such as Forever 21 and H&M and the merchandise is priced more or less the same too. There were some more unique local stores, but the prices were so expensive by Chinese standards. I was disappointed not finding anything worth buying, but I had... More

This long street extends from the Bund to People's Square through the central part of downtown Shanghai. Along this street you will find top end shopping, a range of types of restaurants both in expense and cuisine as well as a number of important heritage buildings. On many corners are Art Deco corner buildings and trun of the century office... More

Visited here to see the street more than to shop! The shops are very similar to what we have back home, but more expensive, so I was not that interested! It's good to see at night however. It's kind of like the Vegas of Shanghai! Very crowed area however so be prepared for that! Great sight to visit if you... More

I'm pretty sure when you're in Shanghai but doesn't wanna do much or only have a short time. Walking around Nanjin is the best choice. You can find almost everything here, food, shopping, and if you're happy enough with that then it's good. There's also a subway station nearby so if you get bored you can just hop on the... More

In general, if you want to visit People's square and Bund, yes, you can take a walk through Nanjing Lu to get from one to the other. But I would not recommend going specifically there. There are better places for Shopping and Dining in Shanghai and even on an average day, the street is just very crowded. Overall, in my... More

Great fun and a must do while in Shanghai. On the Puxi side of the river it is a great place for tourists to wxlore the marketa, shops and reataurants. In the early evenings you can watch the locals do their dance routines in the mall while eating some local street favorites. Be aware of the hawkers peddling fake watches... More

It's a nice walk from the People's Square to the Bund, but you must be prepared for the crowds and the nonsense of having one huge shopping centre after an other. It is not a must visit, but it is interesting to see how the new generation of young people in the urban China has fallen into the consumism era.

Staying in People’s Square

Neighborhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
