Tiny but splendid old town with lots of corners to make romantic photographs. The little shops are focused on tourists, but they are still fine and do not have aggressive sales methods.

This place is just outside Yu Garden. It is extremely crowded and touristy, but a good experience. Buildings had a very Chinese facade and you can get plenty of food, drinks, clothes and souvenirs here. Just get used to the crowds and you will enjoy your visit.

This area is very crowded and touristy but amazing to experience. The buildings alone are worth coming to see. It gives you a taste of what Old Shanghai may have been like.

Nanshi is bustling, crowded and rather loud, but should definitely be part of your visit to Shanghai. Many, many choices for food, some shops with high-end merchandise, and others with inexpensive souvenirs. A bit touristy for sure, but well worth seeing!

The Old City which seems to be being knocked down by the day is fascinating. Lots of small shops and character with lots of surprises
