  • The Nanjing Lu

Nanjing Donglu (Nanjing Road East) has long been China's golden mile. Once supreme, it's looking a bit frayed and has slipped a few notches to the emerging luxury option of Huaihai Lu, but laden shoppers still traipse past its cathedrals of commerce, gawked at by gaggles of out-of-towners.

Even back in the dull Communist era, Nanjing Donglu had a distinctly 'shop till you drop' feel about it. Nowadays, Esprit, Benetton and McDonald's have shouldered Marx and Mao into the draughty halls of little-visited museums - which was where the capitalist state was meant to end up.

  • Mandarin Garden (Yuyuan)Bazar   


     
     
      At the north-eastern end of the old Chinese  city ,the bazaar area centres on what is known as Mandarin Gardens , and includes the templs of the Town Gods .Many foreigners consider this to be one of the most interesting places in Shanghai ,but it gets some 200,000 visitors daily,while there's nothing of historical interest left,it's one of those great places where people just come to gawk ,mis,buy ,sell and eat ,it's all lively and entertaining enough.
