Top ways to experience Shanghai Science and Technology Museum and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

A market set in a circle dissected with several corridors. They is a lot of similar stuff all fake but some like T shirts are so cheap that who cares. I got three name brand tops ( $129 each at home ) for $20.

The antiques were made yesterday so avoid them and electronics are a problem as power is different in different countries and it may not work.

I would avoid the electronic stuff as power at home is an issue so check you can use it in your country or you may need adaptors etc.

Access via Line 2 Metro Gate 8 is really easy. It is a 3 Yuan trip from most places in the city. Metro easy to use like the London Tube.

We found the Pearl market the best place. Two in particular Lucy Jewellery and Candy near each other at the entrance. The cover the range of quality and price well below what you will pay at home.

A very extensive museum, covering space, planets, science, history of development ; many in both Chinese and English. Great background and detail, and a museum that can easily take 2+ hours to go through. Lots of explanations in English (but no audio guide in Eng), and the size of the exhibits allow easy access. There are also some activities/VR/screenings which require additional booking, but these were in local language. Very informative, with some very complex scientific issues displayed. Well worth the trip.

Go underneath the museum and there is a huge market that sells absolutely everything and you can be down there for days. Make sure you bater for everything. Start at no more than about a 5th of what they ask.

Have visited this place thrice, but never entered inside the Museum, had been for shopping souvenir, this shopping complex is right in front of the Museum and just above the Subway, had purchased lot of items at very cheap price, you can bargain like anything may be upto 90% less for the seller's price. You get good leather bags for just 100RMB. Everyone speaks English.

the shopping below the SSTM is in a word.. stunning (for foreigners). A huge underground labyrinth of market stalls selling everything fake, cheap and weirdly fun. It's like the old Xinyang market has moved to Pudong. The museum itself is HUGE, yet rather uninspired with exhibits. The location in PuDong makes it a trek from downtown, yet, if you have a day to spare in your travels....

Best market in Shanghai!

Catch metro Line 2 Shanghai to Science & Technology Museum near Jinxiu Lu.
There are just isles and isles of stalls as soon as you step off the train. If you’re wanting knock off bags, shoes, clothes, software, gifts etc then this is the place to go.

Bargain hard and walk away to get the best price. Once you’ve figured out the price you can go to multiple stalls to purchase the same item.

The museum is okay. What I really liked was the huge underground warren of shops selling popular items at huge bargains. I bought a new suitcase that would have cost Yen300 in Japan for Yuan300 and a very nice purse for around US$22 and some other small items. If I'd had more room, I would have shopped more. Get off at the Science and Technology Museum Metro station and wander around the lower floor as you leave the gates. All the shops are right there. You may never make it to the Museum itself.

This is one stop shopping. From souvenirs, to same day made shirts – it’s all here. Pearl Market, Fashion Market, Gift Market and Fabric Market – one stop off the metro line 2 – this is easy to access. I was most impressed with the quality of work that John’s Tailor at space K2-36 did. They made a wool long coat for my friend in two days for 250 RMB – approximately $40 USD and their workmanship was wonderful. For cheap scarves, jewelry organizers, Chinese wine bags, placemats and other souvenirs, I recommend Zhang Ping at space D3-55 – the owner is fair and has good items.

Visit the market. Everything and cheap barter hard. If they start around 250 to 300, this means you will get product for 50. Stay strong and wall away.
