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 shopping mall at the westernized of this road is where everyone heads to for a bargain or two. Every designer shop you can think of and then some. Watch out for the trains taking shoppers about in the pedestrian area and the numerous photos sessions of bride and groom that are being carried out.

As Americans, we view population numbers through our own prism - Houston is the nation's 4th largest city, sprawling and with a population of around 4 million people. If you want to get a sense of the multitude of people, and a sense of how crowded Shangai is as an urban center with approximately 20 milion people, stroll the pedestrian... More

Lots of people, shops and lights. Just your everyday city centre shopping street times 5 million people. Take some time to walk down some side streets, often you'll discover some cool little shops. The street is touristy however you have to walk down it. Get off at people's square and walk east toward The Bund one afternoon.

Just a junction with lot of shopping area. People are always crowded. Watch out for street hawker they'll insist you to buy their product once you show them that you're interested.

If you really want to experience the high energy of Shanghai, this is the place to go. At any time of day or evening, you'll be assaulted by a fantastic array of under the table goods. Night time brings incredible lightiqs all up and down the street. You aren't going to get great deals on Nanjing-lu, but you will have... More

Nanjing Road is one of the most lively pedestrian streets anywhere. All the shopping you want is there, any food you want is there, and any "extracurricular activities" you want is there... Daytime and night are equally populated and lively. There are many tourists from all over the world so be prepared to be targeted by many hustlers and the... More

First, we had a nice time visiting Nanjing Road. The people were friendly and we found the constant attention of the sales people rather comical rather than annoying. The area certainly appears set up for tourists rather than the local population. If you wish to get more of the real feel of China, you will need to head outside of... More

When you are in Shanghai, you don't feel in China. But when you walk around here, you feel in New York. All the biggest and most expensive brands concentrated in one street. Apart from all the Chinese you see you think you are someplace else. Don;t get trapped by the cheap offers or massages.

This is a must see wen you visit Shanghai! I live here, and go here all the time. It is very densely populated with people and stores/shops (foreign and asian) and food stands. You need to be aware of a pick pocketer and people will try selling you things, but just say no, and keep walking. Take lots of pictures,... More
