  • great experience loved it a must see tourist spot. Know what you want and the price you wish to pay. DONT buy TECH from the streets guys ( they have a kiosk on the side of the movie place) I bought a Drone and as a traveled guy I made him test it bartered the right price. It was all good. Paid the price he was happy I was ecstatic. Drone for my son hes gonna love it. Carried it by hand to the UK. Opened the box my son drooling. It didn't work. Well played to the seller he got me. He won. dont know when he switched it. As I play it back maybe when swapped the boxes as i paid his friend. All in all I didnt want to be on my guard. I was happy to pay. Trick me once - Shame on you Trick me twice - shame on me. :)
  • “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
  • One of the trademark places in Shanghai. Good for a walk, but not much else to do. Crowded.
  • Nice crowdy pedestrian street. Something for everyone
