Modern, electric street filled with shops, eateries, and lovely restaurants tucked away up above the street level. Some can be tricky to find but are worth the effort.

Easy access via East Nanjing Road station. Very crowded. Walking distance to The Bund. Suggest don't going there during China public holiday.

We were taken here on our tour to shop but they the majority of shops along Nanjing Rd is high end shopping. We found a couple small shops on the side streets for trinkets and souveniers but there wasn't must here for "reasonable" shopping. I was a bit disappointed.

Great shopping street, with plenty of variety, take a stroll in the evening, and soak up the atmosphere

You can buy at top end shops or as cheap as you want on Nanjing Road. You will be approached by people asking if you want to buy bags, watches etc, if thats your thing. Pleasant walk and clean

The main iconic shopping road in Shanghai, one of the busiest in the world! about 5.5 km long, there's endless shops and restaurants to choose from! sadly no fancy cool Malls or traditional streets food, you will have to check other areas for that.

I guess is a place to visit but to go shopping, I don't think so! is dirty and crowded... People are digging in the trash to get the plastic bottles...I felt bad for them and at the same time is not very nice to see this happening next to sooooo expensive shops.... too much of a difference in the ambience...sad

One does not visit Shanghai if you never step you foot into Nanjing Road. A lot of thng to buy and eat. Just beware of Tea Ceremony scam

Staying in The Bund

Neighbourhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the 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 restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
