This market consists of little shops really, or sometimes bigger shops with a number of stalls in. As in any Chinese market you have to barter, but then you can get a good price. Don't be put off if you don't like shopping, it is...More

A great place if you know how to bargain, and if looking for souvenirs. Several diferent stores carry all the same items, so it is very easy to walk away if you do not get your bargain price. Be aware that this area is busy,...More

This place is busy, be aware that pick pockets work this bazar so keep you valuables close. It is fun to walk around, prices are high and if trying to barter 1/3 of the asking price is fair,

So many stores and most pretty similar. Ridiculously Overpriced and got irritated by being hounded all the time, overall a typical Chinese market with a lot of fake goods. Watch out for pickpockets.

A lot of shops, nothing too exciting. Too crowded (as all in China). Has not a particular kind of stock that will be appealing to tourism.

This bazaar is like many other shopping areas in China. You’ll of course negotiate very hard for things you may not really need. However, you are probably going to be here already seeing some of the very nearby sites. In that case, take some time...More

A nice and beautiful place to visit! All the buildings inside Yu Garden are ancient-styled, the zig-zag bridge area is great for photos. However, the place is VERY crowded, but I would still recommend a visit here if you are in Shanghai. *If you want...More

Old Town
Shanghai’s original walls live on in the curve of the
streets that serve as the border to the old city. An
aerial view shows a clear circular outline and parts
of the original wall are preserved as monuments to the
ancient past. The main tourist attraction of Yuyuan
(which means Yu garden, though it is often redundantly
referred to as Yuyuan Garden) draws hordes of tourists
every day, but wandering the streets around the
