If you're in the market for knockoff luggage, handbags, wallets, shoes and belts then this is a place for you. Usually starting your bartering at 1/3 of the price offered is welcomed and you may finish at the 50% mark. There are stalls and stalls of the same stuff so it might be worth having a shopping list first before... More

Visit the underground market which is located below the museum backside. Lots of shops selling knockoffs of good quality if you like this sort of thing. They also have lots of regular travel baggage and gifts. It is fun to browse but be prepared to negotiate they enjoy the back and forth. One could pay way too much and it... More

Although there has been a bot of effort put into this museum, it's not really there yet, and in fact has quite a way to go. It probably doesn't help that the last science and technology museum we visited was Questacon in Canberra, Australia, which is fantastic! The first problem was that we went on a Saturday in the summer.... More

First rule here is be ready to barter like never before. The people here are very pushy any of the people that approach you to bring you to "their store" are generally working to get a commission if they bring you to a store and this will affect your final price. The sales staff start incredibly high in hopes of... More

We arrived at 11.30am on a Saturday morning and were in complete shock. There were two queues - one for tickets and one to get in. For the queue to get in, they had gates and when they cleared one gate and allowed people to come in from the other gate - people literally ran in. At where we stood,... More

You buy bags, chop sticks, Chinese chess games, watches, Silk, ...... All the time negotiating price..... Max to pay is 25% initial prize .... You can achieve it by the simple tricky strategy of saying: the prize is high and leaving the shop.... Once outside the Guy will lower the prize .... Enjoy it. One important stuff: there is air...

A huge four storey building full of things to do and things to see. Terrific place to visit on a rainy or hot day as it is out of the weather. Easily accessible via Shanghai Metro with its own Metro Station. Plenty of hands-on activities for children and budding scientists. The environment and animals exhibition is extensive and the space... More

Just outside the Shanghai science and technology metro station is the Shanghai's famous bag and shoe fake market. Its amazing. Lot of options...name a brand and you have a copy of it. As you enter the market, touts will ask you what you looking for. They will then take you to some shops and some warehouses deep inside the store...kind... More

Pls make sure you have enough time for visiting this place. It’s quite big with lots different pavilions (high tech, stuffed animals, spiders etc). Very nice for kids, but adults will find something for themselves as well )) I was there twice. There is no coffee, no place to sit and have a rest, so, be patient and have some... More

Staying in Century Park

Neighborhood Profile
Century Park
Shanghai residents see Pudong’s suburbs as the place that grown-ups retreat to when they’re ready to settle down and stop living in the cramped confines of a refurbished lanehouse. The areas around Century Park are some of the most desirable as they are in close proximity to the Metro Lines, granting easy access to the heart of Puxi. The park itself is a huge draw, it’s one of Shanghai’s biggest and there are sports fields tucked into one of its corners, but five-star hotels, museums and great malls make life in the Century Park area easy for the homesick foreigner. And if living in a Western bubble in China isn’t your thing, there is plenty of local flavor to be had in between the major development. Some of Lujiazui’s futurism can also be seen in buildings and sculptures throughout the neighborhood as well.
