  • 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.
  • One of the main shopping road in shanghai. Hell lots of people (be aware of personal belongings). Take at least two hours. Not recommend to eat here.
  • That's the real power center where you can get everything you want from this nation. However, just ignore the people who selling stuff on the street, and never go there at weekend. High quality and level restaurants are close by and just enjoy the band at night fir the nice view!
  • Great place for wandering around at night, and is quite near to People's Square. A lot of restaurants there offer delicious foods. You can buy or just go window shopping i.e. clothing, watches, glasses, cosmetics, home appliances, souvenirs and so on. There are a few hotels on this road as well.
  • Great place to be..just that good feeling walking in the cool summer evening and having street food and drinks all along !

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.
