This place is not especially inviting from the outside and the interior is a bit of a time warp. This was one of the few shopping places where there was some vocal advertising and entreaties by the vendors and of course bartering is the de...More

The actual shops won't bargain all that much, maybe 10-20 percent, but the vendor stalls go lower, and then you have the shops on the other floors. We bought a large duffle bag on wheels for 100 RMB, the starting price being 490. Pearls: we...More

Nice mall with small shops. Mostly souvenir and clothing shops. However if you want to shop good fake brands, this is not the place to be.

Pearl Market is another tourist lure, offering largely knock-off goods at prices you need to haggle down to no more than a third of the first numbers. If you don't like to bargain, this is not for you. On three floors, with clothes on the...More

Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and
entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of
residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle
pockets that have their own unique attractions. The
schools have formed pockets of international
communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang.
Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have
built up over the years to cater to these communities.
