Take the metro to Peoples’ Square and take a walk down Nanjing Lu to the Bund as it’s a great place for people watching, shopping and eating. Be aware this (and the Bund) is Scam Central. I don’t think pick pocketing and phone snatching is...More

You cannot count a visit to Shanghai complete without wandering up Nanjing Road. Shanghai history meets fashion- food, lights, malls, parks, temples, you can find it all on this mesmerizing street, running through the heart of downtown.

Wonderful walking street in the city. Happy train is available for kids right here. It’s very difficult to find toilet in mall but ice cream and Thai mango juice is easy to see. So let’s try.

Nanjing road has everything from designer labels to markets where you can haggle over prices, along with many cafes and restaurants. Accessible from the metro, be prepared to do a lot of walking as very long street.

A bustling thoroughfare with many high end stores and interesting restaurants, along with a temple, and ultimately, The Bund. Great way to get some exercise, window shop, snack along the way.

You can buy just about anything you want here. A very vibrant location crowds of people and hundreds of shops. Really central and very close to the Bund.

world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous
waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts
monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai
International Settlement run by the British and
Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has
endured over time and is now found in the five-star
hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive
