This area is modern, although built in a traditional style. Consequently, the alleys are not so cramped and claustrophobic as some older areas. The shops are all exciting and we felt quite safe walking around the area. As well as typical Chinese shops, there is also a Starbucks to provide refreshments. The Gardens in the centre of the complex make... More

We went intending to go very quickly through the bazaar and head to the gardens. What we saw in the bazaar was amazing. It was of course very busy as it was China's national holiday, but we found going through the shopping area quite interesting. There was a wide variety of vendors. A lot of very cheap touristy stuff, but... More

Our main intent was to visit the gardens. However, the bazaar is huge and unavoidable if you want to visit anything in the area. There is the expensive and touristy center, around the temple and the gardens, that has grown into a rambling sprawl in all directions. It is very touristy and a bit hokey, and there are people there... More

My friend took me to this shopping area on our visit to Shanghai. It's a bit touristy but I loved the buildings and there is a lot of energy. Be prepared to bargain. I actually found better stuff in the commodities market across for this bazaar especially semi precious gems and strings.

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!

I spent nearly 4 hours on my first trip. There are many many many streets lined with shops leading to the Yu Garden. Besides the huge Yu bazaar that you will not miss, there are 2 beige buildings behind the Yu Gardens named Fu You Men market which you can check out if you like to browse wholesale markets --...

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

This is one of a touristic spots for visiting and buying souvenirs. Most shops sells similar stuffs and there are also a lot of restaurants within the vicinity. I must admit that I did not walk through all as it was raining. If are more adventurous, you can walk through the small lanes of residents' houses. Within the lanes, there... More
