The fake markets at 580 west nanjing road, are a bargain hunters dream if you are prepared to bargain hard and not be scared to walk away if stall holders will not meet your price.

A handbag my wife bought was originally priced at 1,422 yuan and after a short time got woman price down to 200 yuan after walking away twice and she chased us. Do not feel guilty they still make plenty from sale.

They have everything you could wish for at market. If you are on Big Bus green route get off at stop 22 and building is across the road and one building down. Glass front doors and inside escalators taking you up to 1st floor to begin adventure.

This is the famous fake market of the town, specially the mall called 580 West Nanjing Road. I must say great bargains waiting for you. Most of the shops sell the souvenirs, fake bags, fake uggs and other trendy shoes. Tshirts and cheap spec frames watches etc. A good time pass. Only tip .. Bargain hard and make a deal on almost 30% of the quoted price.(may be lesser than that) Really enjoyed being around.

Fake goods are available at ridiculously low prices at 580 west nanjing road. Quality is good but brands are nit the real deal. Be prepared to bargain. The general recommendation is to start at one tenth if their offered price. Don't be put off by the horrified reaction this is all part of the game. Shoes bags sunglasess electronic goods cashmere silk...i could go on. You need time and energy for this place but the amazing bargains are worth it. Don't ge afraid to walk away as all items are available from any number of places there. Walking away is one of the most effective bargaining tools you can use. Check the prices from a number of vendirs to get a feel for the place before you start bargaining for an item.

Very crowded when I was there in early July (late afternoon/early evening) and scam artists all over the place. If you are going to walk through, there are numerous people that zoom in on you as a Westerner to ask if you want to go shopping, buy a watch, go for a massage, or go have tea.
I had read reviews before I went to China so read about these scams and stayed alert about what was going on around me, especially with it being so crowded. I had numerous people ask to go shopping, but not as many that came up asking if I wanted a massage. Later on, I sat down to people watch and it's funny how the women target the Western men, especially if you are by yourself. It reminded me of sharks going after the stray fish. In the evening, watch for women (usually in pairs) coming up to talk to you asking where you are from and that they are students taking English classes. They eventually end up asking if you want to go have tea. I had this happen to me again later that evening.
You're a tourist there and in a vulnerable state, so don't fall for these scams that will result in you losing money or being hurt.

Nice place for a stroll among the masses.
The evening lights are worth a look, but during the day it's a little grey.
I generally like to walk with friends down Nanjing road to the bund, then along the river .
Keep your belongings in a inside pocket.
As a Caucasian male I was approached by many people trying to practice English, this is fine if you do not go into any shops, beware of the tea scam, and the art student trying to sell you overpriced goods. Could cost you thousands.

The concierge from our hotel recommended this place . We were met by his friend outside who took us round. Actually you really need to bargain hard and walk away if it's not the price u want. The fake handbags were actually quite good quality. You can find most things there. The mall itself is a dump and so are the restroom facilities. We did pick up some bargains though.

You will probably visit The Bund anyway, so why not proceed to check this pedestrian street filled to the brim with over-priced goods and souvenirs you may not need.

Expect the restaurants to be crowded as well.

However, while you are there, enjoy the architecture or explore some of the alleys from this main road you may discover some great finds.

If you will just walk through it and you have the time, suggest you visit the Shanghai Museum at the end of the street inside the People's Park.

Lots of shopping stores and malls, restaurants and the end of the road will lead you to Huangpu River with a good view of the Oriental Pearl TV Tower. Best places to shop, eat and experience what it's like to be in a busy street in Shanghai.

I have to say Nanjing Road East down by the Bund is much more fun for the Westerner, as here are all the electronic shops and Chinese shops we do not get at home.
The pedestrianised Western section is a collection of all the expensive Western designer label shops that any European has experienced before if you have traveled around london, Paris Milan e.t.c.And the real killer point is that all the goods are more expensive than we can get them in Europe anyway due to the import taxes, so there's no point in shopping in them either.
If your hotel is situated near the Bund and you want to visit the Peoples Park (which I highly recommend) then a walk along the full length of the Nanjing road to get there will always be fun.
