This area is great for tourists wanting to shop and eat from different cultures. It is also central and easy to get to. Plenty of Taxi access.

Again, identifying places mentioned in many novels was great. Fantastic area for eating all different cusines. A must visit area in Shanghai.

The street stores are quaint and chic. The place, warm and welcoming. The canopy trees and the architecture are a photographer's delight. Nice place to unwind, eat, and maybe do a little shopping.

Okay, if you are coming from a cute place, don't expect much. But after staying in Shanghai for 2 weeks, this place is really nice, quaint, and a welcome relief.

high end fashion street with plenty of nice cafe and design shops nothing too impressive but the vegetarian restaurant "Lucky Zen" is worth a try
