  • 城隍廟位於黃埔區豫園旅遊景區,是曾經的道教廟宇。如今除了可以在這裡體驗宗教風情與建築特色之外,當然最最實在就是城隍廟的小吃,特別推薦的是南翔饅頭店的小籠包,絕對是難得的美味,每次駐足,都有好多人在排隊等待,打包拿走會比堂食更加划算。此外各種炸串,蟹殼黃,點心也非常美味。  more »
  • it's worth to visit when you're in Shanghai so you can feel the Chinese culture.It's a Taoist temple.Feeling different when you're here.  more »
  • 因為是週末吧,到處都是人,但香火鼎盛,古色古香的廟宇還是很值得一看,不需要門票,還提供免費供香,是到豫園必訪之地  more »
