  • Cheap entrance it won't take up much time visiting this place but you might as well go and admire the architecture gets quite busy 
  • 城隍庙是去年去的,因为是和男票第一次旅游,所以记忆颇深,喜欢中国的寺庙文化,因为仿佛在那边虔诚地祈祷,心想事成的可能性就会倍增。城隍庙比想象中小很多,逛完应该不超过10分钟吧,但是里面的香客特别多,所以在城隍庙里面祈祷应该特别灵验,看到有些香客头顶上举着一大把没有熄灭的香在参拜,不由得替他捏一把冷汗,后来一问才知道是香火的意思,香火不断,越旺越好的寓意 
  • 建築比較有上海這邊的獨特的風味,人氣很旺,尤其是節假日。但是購物的話,這邊的東西比較昂貴,而且一定要砍價,否則會吃虧上當的。 
  • Been on a business trip and absolutely love the place and the people.. So so want to go on holiday there
  • A restored and fully functioning Taoist temple.
  • Loved it! Been there with my girlfriend! How I missed the time...
  • Most of the building is newly built, although they try to keep the old design, but the feeling is totally different.
  • I love shanghai town
