  • The street is full of people going in and out of the stores, and harassment to give foreign tourists a little angry (people come to get you by the arm). It's not my favorite place in Shanghai.

  • I wanted to do some shopping while in China. This is definitely more high end. Nice to look at, but would recommended some other places if just looking for trinkets and souvenirs.  more »
  • The Nanjing West Avenue is one of the main streets of the center of Shanghai and has a considerable length. It houses the most important houses of fashion, jewelry, restaurants, shopping centers and shops of the main items that might be of interest for the tourist. In general the prices are not so convenient, but a visit worth.

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.
