No cars, but lots of people. Shops at this street more orientated on tourists then on locals. It became part of local culture for sale

If you love shopping this is the place to go. It has every brand you can think of. If your a shopaholic I don't think you will be able to visit all shops in one day

Plenty of shops for shopping and eating. Lots of mango deserts and eateries. Good to spend a few hours to walk.

Very nice place to visit during the day or at night, lots of shopping malls and small shops line the street - from expensive western shops and restaurants to small local ones. Can be very busy at the weekend.

The whole street is going through extensive refurbishment. Nonetheless, it's still bustling with tourists, both local and foreign. For the slightly more adventurous visitors, they should venture out to the northern side of Zhongshan Road.

Prices are reasonable, but it is best that you visit a few shops selling the same product and than you see where the cheapest is.

I assume that your layover is during the day. I would highly suggest Gulangyu island. It may require a little preparation in terms of getting tickets, and if you don't mind crowds, it's worth a visit. I think it's the best... More
