This tour was a fantastic way to shop in Shanghai. MJ and Suzy were excellent in taking us to the places to shop, giving recommendations about what to buy, and who to buy from. We knew that going with their recommendations would ensure we got quality and the best prices. We would have been lost without their help! I also... More

Amazing tour with custom made clothing, pearls, scarfs, prescription glasses, etc. MJ is delightful and professional in her ability to weave you through all the shops and stalls. Couldn't do it without her help. I was so excited with all my items, just wish I had more days with MJ. I would recommend MJ's tour any time.

As other reviews have mentioned, MJ's Shanghai Shopping Tours combines a fluent English speaking guide, with pre-screened retail shops and largely pre-negotiated prices. I did a half day tour with driver... I highly recommend having a driver because otherwise you will have to lug around your shopping bags. We hit the Pearl Market where I bought my fill of jewelry,...

Shopping Tours Shanghai is the only way to shop - we landed after a long flight and went straight into shopping. MJ gave us the most amazing tour on our first day in China - great tips, great food experiences, great shopping - couldnt have done it without her. The best way to start your holiday in Shanghai, China.

Shopping Tours Shanghai was a must for us as China travelers. My husband and I both went. We had very specific items we were looking to purchase. MJ went above and beyond to meet our shopping needs. The guides were fluent in Chinese and helped us negotiate the best price. Would we do it again? ABSOLUTELY! Bob and Laura

I like shopping in foreign countries, but absolutely hate the negotiation game and the aggressive sales tactics in marketplaces.

Thank you for taking the time to review your tour! While many things are getting more expensive in Shanghai, it's great to have so many levels of quality available - something to fit every budget! It is quite common for clothing that isn't being copied from an original to require some additional tailoring which is why we add the convenience... More

Staying in Jing'an

Neighborhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
