Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This street is a must visit!! This shopping street, the 5.5-km-long (3.4-mile-long) Nanjing Road, starts at the Bund in the east and ends in the west at the junction of Jing'an Temple and West Yan'an Street. You can even see dancing peoples.

Nanjing Lu is a busy street with all kinds of people around the world. Best to go is on Dec-Jan . Many shops and malls to visit. Prices are not cheap. Shanghainese will tend to smoke everywhere (outdoor or indoor). I advise to wear face mask for better health. For first time tourists, it is worth the trip.

I love how busy this street always is. It’s in central area in Shanghai, and perfect place for many occasions - solo shopping, friends hangout or dates. You get to see all walks of life here, and good places for street photography

is a busy road in Shanghai and it the main shopping district of Shanghai
road. It is nice place for walking ,eat local food and drink fresh juice. Beware of scammers. They may offer you to buy dollars at an attractive price, play gambling, or buy counterfeit goods for international brands. Do not go into alleys or basements, as you may be exposed to harm or have your money stolen.

Beautifull wide street with no car and with shops on every side. Peoples are learning dancing early in the morning. From our hotel we could see the night life and enjoy the view.

Nanjing Lu, or Street, is one good-looking shopping area in the big city, with a huge number of restaurants and shops at street level and higher levels.
The Roof, Club Room, and HIYA are famous eateries here and there are lots of major attractions in the area, including Chen Y i Square, WaiTan DiXia Jie, Heping Fandian, and many more. Don't be intimidated by the population of Shanghai, which is close to the population of Canada -- yes, all the people in Canada = the population of Shanghai -- because the city is pretty and chill with an incredible number of terrific restaurants and shopping centres. I was intimidated by the size of Shanghai -- until I went there and discovered it's a friendly, beautiful, safe, city that's a lot of fun to explore.
