  • “GOOD PLACE” Situated between building this lane is well maintained and no vehicles are allowed on this road. There is only one train running on wheels which would take you around the street in 5yuan. The train is so slow that you can hop in and hop out at any time. The street has all the things you would like to shop, from cheap to the branded. Tired of shopping you can sit and eat at various restaurants Visited March 2015
  • A fantastic shopping and eating/drinking area. Haagen Dazs cafe is superb, but expensive, like most of Shanghai. They are all the usual high end shops like Gucci, Omega, Rolex etc, plus a lot of high fashion brands popular in the East. Also a lot of small local shops, all round a great experience
  • Nice crowdy pedestrian street. Something for everyone
  • A nice and busy pedestrian walk with plenty of retail shops. Some buildings still retain Western architecture of its era giving the place a unique charm.
  • Lots of stores towards the end of the road sell souvenirs at cheaper prices
