Easy to access from the subway (about 10mins walk). The main streets are usually very crowded so prepare to brace the crowd. There’s also a big mall once you exit the subway where you can do some shopping thereafter.

Small little water town not too far away from the city proper. The old street is full of shops and street food. Fun place to visit. Extra bonus that it is easily accessible from downtown Shanghai.

Really don't bother. The Qibao Temple is well worth seeing, although it's not very well posted in the area, so you may have trouble finding it. If you can track it down, it's virtually empty and there's a lot to see for free. The pagoda...More
