We were looking for the fabric market (which is mainly about tailoring, not selling fabric) and en route stumbled on Fangbang Road, which adjoins the Yuyuan Bazaar. There must be hundreds of small shops/stalls here catering for the local population as well as tourists. We found very few of the shop staff spoke English, but it's surprising how far you... More

We were planning to see Yu Gardens on the final day of our visit to Shanghai. On the way we got lost a little. When we finally found someone to speak English and give directions, (a big issue for us in mainland China), we went through this bazaar and it was so lively and colorful that we decided to skip...

Bazaar by name Bazaar by nature, fun and worth a visit, Extremely touristic and extremely busy, Loose yourself in the Bazaar in and among the small shops. The area itself is quite architecturally fascinating and you will find carp filled pools with ducks geese and turtles below crowed walkways in and around the old designed buildings. Tip - be aware...

The area is really vibrating but this particular market is nothing special. Take time and walk 10-15 minutes from the market and you find more genuine Shanghai.

I wouldn't suggest skipping it for the experience but be prepared for the crowd and haggling (which you must do well, if you would like to purchase something).

Would you be comfortable in a place where there are many pedlars around who annoyingly harass you with their the goods they are selling and intentionally block your way and prevent you from taking any photos around the place? This is nothing more than just a maze of shops trying to make a fast buck with crowds of tourists (presumably... More

was told it was a nice place to go so I decided to try it. It's an old Chinese city, worths the visit. It's good for shopping and eating, in case you would like to try some dumplings it's where many locals go. Good for buying scarves, bags, clothes, handicraft, magnets, Chinese traditional clothes, pearls, jade jewelry/bijoux. Try to go... More
