It is very easy to get to this plaza. Exit ten takes you up right outside the ball. You can take line 9, line 1, and line 11 to Xujiahui. All of the Malls in Xujiahui are connected both above ground and in the metro so it is hard to tell where one ends and one begins.

Fitness: My gym was located in this mall. PHYSICAL, was actually a pretty nice gym. For the basic price (and yes, even this in negotiable in China) You get free towels, free lockers, showers with soap dispensers, free classes including belly dance, yoga and spin classes. There is a decent selection of free weights and it is usually never crowded. There are personal trainers and a boxing ring/classes available for an extra price.

Food: There is actually a great array of food available in the mall. There are a bunch of vender stands with everything from high end crepes to instant sushi. There are also sit down restaurants that cover all the bases, Italian (With really good pizza), american, Japanese, Chinese, even a Hardees (Carls junior). One day I just strolled up and down the main food hall and bought different things from the venders. It was fun to experience such a variety of items on one convenient and indoor location.

Electronics: There is a fake electronics market where you can find just about anything you need. I for instance needed to use it once to find a new phone charger. For headphones I just bought them from the venders to who squat when you exit the metro stations, they only last a few weeks to two months generally (before one of the buds goes out) but they cost about 2 US dollars. Make sure you bargain or you can be grossly over charged.

Stores: you can find everything from home, office, clothes, food, fitness in this mall.

Metro City Plaza is probably the main computer market in Shanghai, referred to by the hotel I stayed. From where I stayed, it quite convenient via the MTR. It's about 3 to 4 floors or stores selling computer/electronic/mobile phone related accessories and components. Compared to some of the computer market I've been to in Hong Kong and Singapore (Sim Lim), it's not as good, there isn't as much choices on display and lots of the stores are laid out in an open space, so when you shop for something or negotiate for prices, everyone hears/knows it. Price wise, it's average, not much cheaper and you'll need to bargain with them, there is no fixed price. I bought an iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2 glass screen protector together for RMB¥150, which I think is average. I find prices in Shanghai is never a fixed price, the approach I've adopted is put a price/value to how much you'd be happy to pay for an item, usually hopefully cheaper than you'd pay for it back home and then try and see if anyone accepts it, if not, then you've gone too low, increase by RMB¥5 each time until you get a seller. Usually you probably won't need to go far before someone accepts your offer. I'd be very careful buying memory cards unless you truely and fully test it before exchange money.

It has many choices vide range of fake electronic products but you have to really bargain hard. If you have an opportunity you should prefer Hongkong It has much cheaper products and better quality

Look for the big glass dome, that's it.
Inside is a normal shopping mall with some shops.
Starbucks is on an upper level by the dome, otherwise this mall is good for its electronic fake market. Lots of shops sell small accessories for your cell phone and such.
The mall connects to another that sells computers.
Know your prices before you go.

This plaza is mostly full of electronics, but of course there are other things such as restaurants and a cinema. I saw Harry Potter and the Half-blooded Prince there, and it wasn't bad. The cinema was just a little crowded (as they all are)...but the rest was all very nice indeed.
