Nan Jing Road
One of the two major commercial streets in Shanghai (in addition to Huai Hai Road), Nan Jing Road spans 5.5 kilometres east to west. On both sides of the road are more than 600 shops and shopping centers carrying high quality, brand goods. The eastern part of the road is pedestrian-only with various attractions as well as its shops. Once the premier shopping street, it has been recently eclipsed by Huai Hai Road. Nevertheless, it attracts many people. Transportation is convenient as visitors can catch the metro at various points along the road.
We told our Yoyoor representative what we're looking for: where we can see a lot of architecture that have distinctive 30th Shanghai style and where we can also have some nice food and shopping as we have some last minute shopping to do. That definitely should be Nanjing Road, she told us. Nanjing Road is everything she told us it is, hustling and bustling, great architecture and the perfect place to feel the pulse of morden Shanghai.
The Nan Jing Lu Pedestrian mall is just another place where people will harrass you on the street "You buy a watch, bag?" and the stores are all designed to pull as much money from tourists (both Chinese and foreign) as possible. It at least looks cooler at night...
People were all busy at Nanjing Road with many strolling along the busy street looking for bargain sales. See the different architectural styles from old China to modern influences in the buildings. Enjoy Chinese cuisines or the fastfoods of multinational corporations like KFC and Wendy's. There are a lot to enjoy in Nanjing.
Well, I must tell this was the last place I spent all my money and I didn't regret a thing! If there's ever somewhere in China where shop-keepers (even in the smallest ones) speak English (maybe a bit broken but they got what u mean) and don't make you feel awful, this is here in the Nanjing Road of Shanghai. I actually bought a robe of RMB20 and another in silk at RMB400 but in both case I didn't have to "argue" with the staff as it was in Beijing!
Besides, there usually are some strange little things going on this road that make you smile. One day I was in a real bad mood, walking alone the long road but found a saxophoneman playing from the balcon of a hotel while people starting to dance in the middle of the road. they were old chinese wearing casual stuff but seemed pretty nice and free. I've never seen such a thing when I was in Beijing.
this is undoubtful one of the most joyful place in the city!
I love to stay in NanJing Road.IT can be called "shopping paradise". Don't care about the price, if you don;t want to buy anything.
You will feel very crowd, chaos, happy..cheeres here. Everyday look like festival.
The street is very long and it packed with tons of huge shopping centres with LOADS of very nice shops and some of which havent got bad prices!!! Shanghai really is like the Asian NYC!!! And Nanjing rd really does add to this !!
We were two women traveling to China for buisness. We were told by our consierge to go here for shopping. We were approached continually by beggars and people wantingto sell you things. The cabs only stopped for men and we were uncomfortable here
Lots of shops for every ones liking. Lots of bargaining is necessary. Lots of places to eat and drink. Nice busy place. Do not forget to visit this area at night if you can to see the neon lights which are out of this world. Very colourful and imagimnative.
I hated this place, Because I was a foreigner, I got steered at a lot and was made to feel like an alien from planet saturn with 3 heads. Even the locals don't like it and do their shopping elsewhere. The products sold here are mostly western style and not as cheap as you would expect. The worst bit is being approached by touts every 10 steps you take trying to sell you fake items like rolex, gucci bags, prada shoes and services i won't name. Avoid like a plague.
This is like Pitt Street in Sydney for all of those of you come from Australia! Shops are not really for Western travellers, buy you can definately find shoes in the department stores if you are a size 5-7. Any big size shoes - forget about it. By Cara Aitken.
