“Beautifully restored”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

This is much more of a nice walk and window shop than history. But it is another fine example of Modern Shanghai's cleanliness and international-ness.

“Vibrant and electric ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

Getting lost in the hustle and bustle of these narrow streets was one of my favorite activities in Shanghai. It has a vibrant and electric feel to the place. Shopping is good although quiet overpriced compared to other markets in China. You have countless restaurants to choose from all with seating outside so you can watch the people walk by. You could have breakfast lunch and dinner here for a week and not eat in the same place twice.
