What a relief to browse a shopping mall which retained some of its country's culture in restaurants and stores and to find foods and merchandise unique to the country Also seeing theatre as exciting at night as I the busy daytime was a bonus

My favourite street in Shanghai is Nanjing road..it's a pedestrian street with lots of shops,restaurants..and never sleeps..,so it's better for you to choose hotels near here,cause it's very central in Shanghai,you can reach this place by metro line and stops @Nanjing East station..,and no taxi didn't know this street..very famous street.You can find Forever 21,Zara,HnM,Giordano,Baleno,Metersbonwe,and many other stores..also you can...

Nanjing road is filled with loads of branded shops.. M sure being in shanghai you can not shop much here since shanghai has other cheap market places but still the place is a must watch!!! You can roam here around this place and can do window shopping

My girlfriend and I decided to do some shopping while our husbands found a bar. We were to meet in an hour. When we get up with the men, they tell us how they went up and down all these little streets looking for a bar and nothing happened until they got back to Nanjing Road and a Chinese woman... More

Was back in Shanghai in October 2013 on a solo trip and was heading to eat some good food near the bund. Within a minute of getting out of the train station... More

It is a must to visit the pedestrian mall in all the Chinese cities. This is the place to shop and eat the local food. But in Nanjing Lu, be extra careful of pick pockets and con men. I was approached by 2 very friendly ladies, and they invited me to drink coffee in one of the shops. I rejected... More

Shanghai to me is business by day and boring at night if you are not into the bar scene. Luckily walking along Nanjing is both entertaining for people watchers with many shops and restaurants to keep you busy at night. Bonus - the street is modernizing and at one end of it you end-up on the Bund. Wonderful way to... More
