Average shopping area

Nothing about this place made is screamed unique. It is just a road with shops. At night it might be cool with the lights, but there are far better places to spend your time in Shanghai!

Well this is a must place to visit when you go to Shanghai. You can shopping or eat or just chilling at a Cafe.

Lots of light from building at night.

Even crowded there's lots of space. Lots of food of all types in the surrounding malls, clean bathrooms. If you get too close to the bund, the hotels have strict security as to who can go in, but further away it's just all shopping.

A pedestrian mall with lots to do and see.
Jul 2020
Great place to visit despite meeting all the criteria for being a tourist trap :). At least three large malls at the beginning of the Nanjing Road pedestrian mall (at Henan Middle Road). Along the pedestrian mall there are lots of restaurants/cafes and touristy souvenir shops. There seems to be lots of watch repair places. There is a shop that sells Bee Cheng Hiang - the famous Singaporean beef and pork jerky. it is expensive, but definitely worth a try. When you buy multiple packages, usually would get a few extras. Another big attraction is the m&m store - one of only five in the world (others are in Vegas, Orlando, New York and London). Definitely an experience. As much as I tried to resist, my daughter walked away with a cup of m&m's with her face on them (after paying C$35 for a small cup) - yes, you can make your own custom m&m's and there is a line up to do it.

There are quite a few hotels in the area and it is very convenient to the Bund and the skyscrapers of Pudong. There is also a little kiddie train that travels back and forth along the pedestrian mall - adults can fit in too. Ticket is RMB10 per person. Could be fun if it is too hot and you are tired of walking.

Definitely an attraction to visit.

Easing into China
Aug 2019
This was our first experience of China outside of our hotel. We took a visit here to 'acclimatize' to Shanghai. We found it easy to get around, even with a pram. It was a warm day when we visited, it was easy to get refreshments or find a spot to have a short rest when needed. Lots of big name branded stores and some local outlets/brands as well

Shanghai's very touristy pedestrian shopping street
Jul 2019
Good street for souvenir shopping, and restaurants, cafe, and bars. Beware of the scammers who come up to you saying they wish to go to a cafe to talk with you to practice their English.

Main Shopping Thoroughfare
May 2019
This is a very long road with lots of shops. It is probably the main shopping road in Shanghai. You have East and West Nanjing Road. To visit the Bund, you need to exit from East Nanjing Road station. We found that it was more pleasant to walk here at night. However, this road is crowded.
