  • I went to buy a freshwater pearl. Are dealing with pretty shops there, but I do not know, but prices are generally did the same. English is spoken without problems. Shop with her sister in the grey Freshwater Pearl and I say, "gray coloring, natural freshwater pearls are white, pink, Orange, purple, and Brown. Colored golden color. Golden and grey Akoya is good ' and me, colored in-situ grape all starting cut with a cutter, I was surprised. Necklace and sold piece 50 gave the original Teardrop-shape Freshwater Pearl, necklace and earrings made for souvenirs. Necklace is 100 things glow from the original position in the 200 from the original is the impression. Cheap and good scratch. At the same price of scratches little and Terri so tightly around the online it is important.

  • Love this place for fake shopping and textiles. Never bought pearls, but lots to choose from. Bargain hard and choose your shops carefully!
  • The Hongqiao New World Pearl market is furthest from the city center, the least crowded and least chaotic. The first floor features standard knock-off-ery: handbags, wallets, souvenirs, shoes. As you move up, there is an extensive jewelry market with pearls in every variation, size and color. The Stuff Hongqiao New World Pearl market includes a tapestry shop, with tons of carpets, cushions and home décor items that we haven’t seen at any of the other locations. There's also sports equipment, including tennis and badminton rackets, and balls. Many stalls are lined with fabrics in all colors and textures. There are great places to design a dress or get a custom fitted suit! Tailored clothing: Fake markets are fun, but for high-quality, lasting apparel, you're better off finding a tailor for a custom-made piece. Hongqiao New World Pearl market is certainly not the only place to get clothes tailored to your specifications. Shanghai (and for that matter, China) is full of talented and afforadable tailors. Best Buys Pearls are the best purchase at this market. The second and third floors (now under renovation) house boutiques that sell pre-made pieces. You can also design your own jewelry from a wide selection of pearls and jade. There is a massive toy store, Wish Toy, equipped with every sticker, Lego and stuffed animal you could think of. Pro-tip: The pearls you find here should be real, but for your reference, whenever you shop for pearls, check for fakes by scratching the pearl's surface with scissors. Most vendors will provide scissors in order to prove their pearls' authenticity. If powder scratches off, then you know the pearl's real -- if nothing scratches off, you know it's plastic. What can I get for RMB200? Silk and cashmere scarves begin at RMB75-150 and vary depending on the material, quality and dimensions. Grab a 22x14cm photo of Shanghai’s skyline or native people to adorn your walls for RMB50, though you can haggle and get three for RMB100. Luggage is also a great buy, with prices starting at RMB100 for carry-ons.

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.
