What Makes It Special
Take the metro to the Science and Technology Museum to find this famous "fake market." Bring cash and barter hard, as prices are heavily marked up and half the fun is negotiating with the sellers.

the heart of Puxi. The park itself is a huge draw,
it’s one of Shanghai’s biggest and there are sports

As above. You get off the train and you are in the markets. Just go through the ticket gates and choose which aisle to start from.
