Chinatour made a quick stop here for lunch and we were given 1 1/2 hours to enjoy the atmosphere and a meal. Peter Wu, our awesome guide, recommended a 2nd floor 100 years old restaurant where we can sample the Shanghai famous - Xiaolongbao. The food there was indeed delicious but getting a seat without Peter's help would have been... More

Just got in from a leisurely stroll down Nanjing Rd. Not too crowded being a Friday, and while we found hawkers approached us regularly,most were polite and disappeared when told a firm 'no thanks'. The East end was more interesting than the West, but nice walk to Bund.

Get a cup of coffee, take a walk, always many people... most travelers. This is a must for first timers. There are things to buy in the streets, malls to go shopping and plenty of places to eat. As for the "Do you want a young lady?"... I laugh and keep walking. If they ask a second time, let everyone... More

This is the only way to stop the Chinese mafia in Shanghai. Let everyone know of the scam. Be careful if anyone asks you for a drink in a bar or some pretty girl starts up a conversation with you in the street. This will only lead to money being stolen, you being black mailed or your camera/phone getting robbed.

With its neon lights, images and sound projected onto buildings, crowds and murky atmosphere, walking along the Nanjing Rd "pedestrian mall" is like being in Blade Runner. You will be accosted by shady looking characters, who will offer knock-offs of famous brands but for obvious reasons the purchase transaction has to be conducted behind the scenes. We were in the...

This is a pedestrian-only stretch of shopping and The Sofitel. I went in the morning and there weren't any street stalls open. Shops line both sides of the street. Electric buggies are available should you choose not to walk. It is a beautiful stretch of road and any picture is a lovely shot.

Nanjing rd has this market which is referrred to fake market with knock off items. Items like USB sticks, Headphones etc. do not work well. I purchased 1GB USB Sticks and they failed after only couple of uses. I bought some purses for my wife and they broke quite fast. Buying jackets, scrafs, pens, belts, wallets, souvenirs are at good... More
