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

This area is an easy walk from the Bund and worth getting to early, we got there round 9, limited crowds then. We walked around and saw the usual array of silk, junk, and fakes...hidden down side alleys. Be wary of the touts showing photos of fake Rolexs etc. just embrace the atmosphere and watch the crowds. We sat at... More

This is a great place to get all of your souvenirs and gifts to bring home to friends. You have to be willing to bargain! Most of the time you can get good deals on things because if one store says no, the next store down the way has the same item. There were a lot of fun shops and... More

This place is definitely touristy, but guess what, I'm a tourist! The way it's lit up at night makes for some great photos, and you're able to buy gifts for yourself and your loved ones. Also, what I found most enjoyable was the walk from the Metro! You pass through a tree-lined promenade where locals are out singing karaoke, dancing,... More

Very nice place where you can enjoy the traditional Chinese architecture, restaurants and shopping. Especially at nights the lighting makes it even nicer. A must if you visit Shanghai.

I enjoyed walking through the bazaar for all the colors, smells and people, but there were many cheap products and also a scammer on the street trying to get us to come to her tea ceremony. Worth the time to see, but be careful and do not expect to find high end presents here.

The bazaar has very traditional buildings that look original besides the shops. The first level has plenty of shops where you can buy anywhere from dried dates to baseball caps with Shanghai written on them. The stuff are also very cheep and you can bargain at most shops. The only negative is the hoards of people. It is a major... More

We visited the bazaar in the company of our guide on a city tour one morning. We wished we had been alone as we felt rushed and would have enjoyed exploring it at our own pace. Make no mistake, this is a tourist destination but it is also one frequented by locals, young and old. It's busy and there is... More

This is a shopping area where you bargain for everything. If you are good at bargaining you may get any stuff at for 20% of the quoted price. The traditional buildings house not only local restaurant and shops but also some international joints like Mc Donalds, KFC and Pizza Hut (in case you are not a fan of the Shanghai... More
