Now two blocks long. A lot of international and shop Shanghai cultural shops to visit.

A cool Micheal Jordan Nike shop also worth to have a look a.

A number of coffee shops to stop and watch the world go by.

I arrived post 2 month lockdown to be fair and I guess the lower class are in a bad situation. I met a local girl who immediately took me to a chinese seafood restaurant. I told her I dont like Chinese seafood and I wasnt very hungry but she said they had other things and we just eat something quickly. I have lived in China for 8.5 years and this place was medium/low quality restaurant at best. I speak quite good mandarin but somehow she managed to order enough food to feed a small army including lobster which in normal chinese fashion had been overcooked and chopping into pieces guts and all. This is why I hate chinese seafood to begin with. I ate almost nothing and she drank the bottle of wine to herself. I was ready to pay the bill which I guessed to be around 1500rmb and leave this girl as quick as possible. Much to my shock it was 7700 RMB and I saw all the staff quickly get into their position to guard my escape. Its all a big scam. SH is a terrible place. The upper class wants nothing to do with you and any local that approaches you is just a poor person attempting to exploit you with a tea or food scam. If you come here all I can recommend is paid reputable tours. Expensive chinese food if you like Chinese food maybe thats good. The only redeeming thing about SH is that it has the best western food of anywhere I have been in China. I also enjoyed seeing the river and the skyline. SH is checked off my list but a huge disappointment. Perhaps my timing was bad.

Was one of the must visit spots. There were many shops and stalls ,and we did enjoy shopping very much. The place was clean and we feel comfortable when walking around.

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.

There's a big Lego store in here

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.

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.

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

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.
