It is a fun place to see. The buildings are beautiful and very chinese and you can buy snacks everywhere. There are loads of people there if you go on the weekend, but this can also be fun. The teahouse and the zig zag bridge are very beautiful.

Awful place. It gets has some beautiful buildings and a lovely garden inside. It has however been completely ruined by commercialism. The stores all hawk the same kind of Tourist garbage on sale everywhere but these vendors take aggressiveness to a new level. If you enjoy haggling then this is the place for you. The initial price is always at... More

You get small cute antqiues here for very cheap compared to other markets in Shanghai. Also one of the few places that has an "old china" look and feel within Shanghai

Perfect place if you want to buy some (not so cheap) souvenirs from shops. And also watches from strange guys walking around.

Perhaps I had a different expectation about this place but I was thoroughly disappointed. Interesting facade and could be fun browsing and strolling but I found nothing of interest other than tourist souvenirs.

Looks beautiful after dark with the buildings all lit up. The architecture is in traditional Chinese styles, and is very photogenic also. However, the shopping experience leaves a lot to be desired, being focused primarily on touristy stuff. As other reviewers have mentioned, there are a number of decent places to get food, however everything is overpriced compared to elsewhere... More

You should have done your homework if you plan to buy souvenir items here. But if your totally clueless as to how much should an item be ,you can always start with 10-20% of their asking price (this does not include the usual key chain, ref magnets & the likes). I bought a Porcelain Figurine for 100 yuan from 680... More

Among Chinese people, this place is known as ChengHuangMiao. (YuYuan is actually a garden located in this area.) The buildings are beautiful and must be the souvenir capitol of China, if not the world. Yes, there are countless things to buy and around the exterior, you will be asked by several people if you want to buy a fake bag... More

The architecture in this area is built to mimic "classic Chinese" style. It is beautiful. Filled with lots of stores which seemed to me mainly targeted towards tourists. Lots of food as well. Worth seeing.
