    Great venue to check out some Galleries and having a coffee or lunch. A bit confusing walking around as it is hard to tell where are the galleries that are open. Island6 is a must see.  more »

    Great place which has lots of studios for free entry. Various artful works that can spend at least couple hours. Most not allowed photo.

    It's always nice to come here and check what's new. Art galleries and free entry, few nice cafes and design shops. A quiet place. You can find sometimes street artists at work as well.

    Nice little village of art studios and galleries in industrial buildings. I believe that a real art connaisseur could spend lots of time there, however, I would not recommend this place to any "simple tourists", unless you are looking for some unique, handmade souvenir. The shops are actually nice, but there were also so many places going under construction that there was not much left of the atmosphere because of all the trucks and construction worker going around. Oh, and go there when the weather is good! The little cafés look promising!

Where to stay in Shanghai

As one of China's top commercial cities and tourist destinations, Shanghai offers accommodations that range from backpacker-friendly haunts to five-star hotels in futuristic skyscrapers. Few world cities can rival Shanghai in terms of room variety, services, and prices, and all types of travelers can easily find suitable options based on their preference and budget limitations. Puxi and Pudong remain probably the best options for most foreign visitors, as these areas offer both modern hotels packed with amenities and older establishments loaded with traditional charm.
