Incredible array of shops selling just about everything. A great place to spend a few hours getting your souvenirs. Lots of eateries too and somewhere in the middle is Yuyuan Garden.

This place is quite massive and beautiful, and you can easily get lost. However, they have great Xiao Long Baos here and fried xiao long baos (which I really recommend). I'm not a meat eater, but I definitely still drink the soup and eat the...More

Shanghai - she's so modern (or was that not a Bob Geldof song?). So it is well worthwhile heading into the old town and its bazaar shopping experience. There are lots of tea, souvenir, fashion and all sorts of shops (many now very modern-looking too)...More

First and foremost, go early in the morning before the hordes of people. Second, stay away from aggressive vendors. Finally, avoid purchasing anything in that area because it is all vastly overpriced.

The buildings here are really impressive. Very busy area as popular with both locals and tourists. The only thing that lets it down is the invasion of high street chain shops. It somehow takes away from the buildings. Well worth a visit though.

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
