YuYuan Gardens or?

by SandiM

We will be staying near the Bund & Nanjing Rd (north) in September. We arrive by train around 11am. We wanted to do something simple for the rest of the day, a walk along the Bund (whatever section will be open to pedestrians by mid-September), and then perhaps a visit to YuYuan Garden. The general directions to get there is to walk south along the Bund and then turn right on Jinling St (I think). How far of a walk is it from our hotel (Manhattan Business Hotel) to YuYuan Gardens? Is this the best choice of gardens? I understand there may be an interesting market around there, too. If there is a direct bus or subway to YuYuan from our hotel? Other scenic area suggestions are welcome!

Yuyuan gardens is a great place to visit if you are that close. Check the distance at your hotel, but I would save the walking until you get to them. Take a taxi for less than 15 RMB for everyone who can fit into it.

At Yuyuan Garden, see the old tea house, but avoid the tea. It is much too expensive at 100 rmb. While there, you can find a lot to see and do. I had deep fried soft-shell crabs on a stick. I love soft shell crabs! You can also walk around the streets outside the gardens to find more merchants. Also look in the gold and jewelry stores just outside the entrance. Gold used to be a good buy in China, but I haven't checked prices recently.

You will see a lot of guys with watches for sale. The Breitling copies are quite excellent, just check to see if it is the one with real moving secondary hands.

See my Shanghai page for updates on the Expo construction frenzy and other interesting things to do and eat in Shanghai.

Another interesting thing to do is take a short taxi ride to Dong Tai road antique market.

I will surely be watching your page for updated news/photos of The Bund! We will be arriving September 12, so if you have any new shots of Huangpu Park before then, be sure to post them! I desperately just want one good shot of the Pudong area from across the river, and my hands are much to shaky to be on a boat to do it, ha ha. If you notice a section along the walkway on The Bund that has become available to pedestrians between now and September 12, please alert me (or add it to your page!). Many thanks!

Aside from the night river cruise to see the Bund (highly recommended to see the brightly illuminated row of colonial buildings), another not-to-be missed attraction in Shanghai is the Charming Shanghai Acrobat Show.

Check out my tips and picturs in this link

No, those directions aren't right. Especially considering the construction on the Bund, I wouldn't walk southwards on it. Walking from your hotel should take around 25-30 mins if you don't get lost.
I would suggest that you actually visit Shanghai Museum on your first day, if you want to have an easy day.
I would prefer to go to Yuyuan Gardens early in the morning so that hopefully you could miss most of the crowds.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

Modern pedestrian friendly shopping

by Icemaiden02 about Nanjing Pedestrian Road

Nanjing Pedestrian Road, Shanghai's premier shopping street stretching 3.4 miles from The Bund to the junction of Jing An Temple, has become an all-weather pedestrian arcade. Shops and restaurants provide products and services with their own characteristics, making it an ideal place that integrates shopping, restaurants, amusement and sightseeing. Being closed off to car traffic, one can casually stroll down the streets at a leisurely pace, enjoying an eclectic combination of old, traditional shops (herbal medicinal shops and silk stores) with the new (modern high-end clothing stores like Armani, Mont Blanc, and Versace are plentiful). World-famous food (KFC, McDonald's, Pizza Hut) along with the old (noodle shops) are mixed together.

If you plan to buy anything, haggle the price. Expect to pay less than half the asking price. Be firm, and when they counter-offer, pretend to walk away. They'll lower the price even more. Silk, jade, gold, souveniers

Sparrow on a stick?????

by Pimpernel about Street Food

This is a barbecuesd bird on a stick. It actually tastes better than it looks although, being so small it is difficult to get much meat off of it. It is worth the 3RMB (20P) for the photo opportunity. This was bought in Yu Gardens, which is a MUST see.

Yuyuan Bazaar

by yipsufen

Remember the shops / direction or else you will get lost easily and cannot find your way out. Allow yourself more time in this place, so that you can do sight-seeing, shop and eat without having to rush.

Shop on local produce, tidbits, handicrafts, tea and hawker food are abundant here. If you are in need of a quick caffeine fix, here you can spot a Starbucks Coffee right in front of the lake.

There is a large food court in Yuyuan Bazaar where you can find all the Shanghainese hawker food. Just pick those you want to taste from the counter & pay at the cashier. Savour all the local delicacies to your heart's content.

Tidbits: Five spices nuts, roasted chestnuts, cakes

Hawker Food: Various kinds of delicious dumplings & crab roe powder.

Handicrafts: Paper-cutting, rice flour doll, name chop, snuff bottle

Attractions: Wishing tree, Chenghuang Temple (entrance ticket with jossticks RMB5), shadow play & tea house
