If it's your first china travel or your first time in Shanghai, don't miss this place. Here you can find a little of everything to complete your china experience. Many culture and traditional things, beside a huge amount of gift shops and traditional crafts.Don't forget to bargain the prices.
Weekends can be crowded bust still acceptable if you have patience. To enter the temple need o pay ticket. Worth.

Get off at Yuyuan station and you’re basically there. But if you head down Henan S Road towards Fangbang Middle Road, that where you’ll find the gorgeous archway entrance to Old Street. Tons of spots to bargain for cheap items. Bought a bunch of gorgeous scarves for 9rmb along this street, and a couple sweet little outfits for my newborn niece which we haggled from 200yuan down to 70. The 10 yuan shops are great to pick up cheap souvenirs of your trip for yourself and all your mates. Lovely architecture to take in and you get towards the centre of place but be prepared to be approached constantly from vendors wanting to sell you knock offs. Also if you keep walking through to the other end, you’ll come across some great deals on shoes if you don’t mind that they say Adibas or Niike!

Another famous tourist centre in Shanghai, come here one or two times, but then move onto more 'authentic' locations.

You can tell this area is not really 'authentic' and is mainly for tourists, as the souvenir shops take VISA credit cards! (The acceptance of Western credit cards is highly unusual in most smaller shops in China.)

There's plenty of street food here to try, which was my favourite part. Just keep wandering in the tightly packet streets and alleys, and you'll surely find something interesting and delicious-looking.

Caution: As with all tightly packed tourist hot-spots in China, some people here are up to no good. Hold onto your wallets and phones. Wear your bags in front, not behind. Watch out for your possessions!

Enjoy Many Cheap Souvenir Shops

From Yuyuan Garden MRT exit 1, just walk pass the small garden around 300 metre,

You can find 5-10 RMB Souvenir shops i.e. Fridge magnet, key chain, chop stick, postcard etc.

Reasonable cloths price i.e. ice silk dress only 25 RMB per pc, scarf 10 RMB per pc.
