Yuyuan is a bustling marketplace set in an old Chinese neighborhood with traditional architecture and shops selling everything from dumplings to kitsch. A great place for people-watching and picking up Chinese souvenirs, and close to the nearby Yuyuan Gardens.

Crowded, noisy, fun; every time at the Bazaar I spent at least 2 hours looking for gigts, discounts, opportunities, souvenirs. Been in Shanghai three times, all of them enjoyed walking on the alleys and I must say: it is safe, even if they drag you through narrow corridors to show the merchandise.

Fun place to shop for tea, jewelry, scarves and other souvenirs. Great location and easy access to the subway. Remember if someone is bothering you and you don't want to buy anything, say "Boo Yow (phoenetic spelling) which kind of translates to 'I don't want'.

Lovely architecture even if they are reproductions of orig. So many souvenir items to choose from. Start haggling at 50% off the price given.

This is where you go to get cheap souvenirs. You are expected to bargain, and will grossly overpay if you don't.

Very interesting and fun shopping area. The architecture is beautiful and there are many of shops to browse for souvenirs and other knickknacks. As with most places that have shops, be careful and bargain. It was definitely fun, but we love to shop so if you don't like to browse and haggle, this is not for you.

We visited the Yuyuan Bazaar at the same time as visiting the Yu Gardens. On a positive note it contains stunning old Chinese style architecture and buildings and the bridge and river near the teahouse is stunning. Now the negatives - very busy (so keep hold of your valuables), constant pestering from dodgy looking sales people trying to sell you... More

The cheats in Shanghai will make you cynical and distrust everyone. From fake notes to charlatans dumping over-priced products to stolen goods, everything is fair game. Be careful what you buy - or better yet, leave your wallet at home and stroll the market without temptations. Else, you may end up with a beautiful jade statue that may turn out... More

This shopping area dates from the 1980/90s but built in a traditional Chinese style. There are many souvenir shops where it is necessary to haggle, together with lots of cafes etc. It is nothing more than a tourist trap.

This was my first real taste of crowded China, and I have to say it impressed me greatly. The architecture was exactly how I imagined old Shanghai would be, and the atmosphere was wonderful. I had been warned about pickpockets, but I felt safe wandering about the narrow streets. (Although I did avoid eye-contact with the many vendors trying to... More
