During the day time this is a very touristy area, but nevertheless a pleasant shopping experience. At night during the rain, much lees busy and much more atmospheric. A must do experience on your visit to Shanghai. Bargain hard when shopping!

Its a nice place to see some traditional Chinese buildings and do some shopping. The place is full with tourists and the buildings are too much renewed in my opinion.

If you are going to the Yugarden, you will pass by the Yuyuan Bazaar. If you do not intend to visit the garden, you will enjoy anyway of classic Chinese red and white architecture. The Yuyuan Bazaar is a huge maze of shops and restaurants where almost anything can be found: pottery, souvenirs, tea, sculptures, traditional food, ice creams, traditional... More

Also, there is a exchange office at the market that has not so bad course at first, but after provision is very bad course, so avoid it (exchange machines have the best course and you can find it...

The garden is worth visiting, and the market itself is very interesting. They sell all kinds of stuff that I got dizzy just by seeing all those things.. Haha.. No fixed price here (I'd start bargaining at 30% of their said price) and good food too. This is the place to buy souvenirs for people back home.

Had a good time walking through this market and watching the people and buying a few fun items. Whatever the price is offered, tell the vendor you can't possibly pay more than half.. and they'll likely discount 20 to 30%. Unfortunately I was constantly bugged by people offering me girls (probably because I was a solo white guy). Once I... More
