I will be travelling to Shanghai for 2 weeks this Aug. As this is my first time in Shanghai, may I know what are the most popular shopping places that I must visit. Will taking the subway be convenient to these shopping places?
"Renmin Guangchang" station for the Nanjing Road Walking Street.
Another popular shopping area is the Xu Jia Hui district.
i agree with Xuess.
And you can also take metro line 1 , get off at HUANG PI NAN LU station or SHAN XI NAN LU station , which is another busy shopping street- HUAI HAI ROAD .
have a nice trip in shanghai :))
btw.. the weather is HOT !!
The subway is easy to use and cheap. Go to the new Xiang Yang Market pirates market in the subway station. See my report for directions.
While you are there, check out the Brazilian restaurant in the subway station and the Technology museum above it.
Hi...we liked the French Quarter the best...for shopping,strolling,eating...many,many small and interesting stores with all manner of wonderful and unique offerings.

Travel Tips for Shanghai
Bottled Water in Shanghai
like in Beijing, they are numerous but hav different prices. Off course, when touring other countries, it is best to buy bottled water whether it is mineral water, purified water or spring water and in beijing it is no different eh. A Bottle of Mineral water here varies on where you buy it. if from convenience stores, it's about 5 RMB and on Restaurants about 8-10 RMB and on Restaurants and tourist sites, About 1 RMB at Supermarkets for a 500 cc bottle. (note the price disparities). 1 liter or above is about 2 RMB in Supermarkets, 10 RMB in Tourist Areas and 8 RMB in Convenience stores and 15 RMB in Bars and Restaurants. Softdrinks are cheaper!
Nighttime walk along the Bund
Now this was something that I had missed out the first time I was in Shanghai:
a walk along the Bund at nighttime!
Thanks to the vicinity of our hotel, we could do it despite the jet lag and the miles of walking on that day - and I must say, it sure was worth it!
Very expensive... Well, after several months spent in Shanghai, it's quite good to remember the taste of french food, even if this taste is not the real one...But here you can dring THE Guigual, which is one of my favourite red wine, so...
The elegant St. Ignatius Cathedral
The St. Ignatius Cathedral is a Roman Catholic cathedral located in the Xujiahui district of the city. The church which is of Gothic architecture was built in the early 1900's but was destroyed during the Cultural Revolution. It has since been restored and is now one of the landmarks of the new Shanghai. There is also an expansive garden in between the road and the church where people can stroll. When I was there there was a couple who were taking their wedding photos in the garden.
There is an English mass Sunday mornings which is attended by the large expatriate population of Shanghai. The church provides television screens at the sides of church that displays the readings as well as the songs.
Beautiful really is a good word to describe Shanghai. Of the four cities in China I visited, Shanghai is by far the cleanest and most modern. The downtown area has some of the most amazing architecture I've ever seen. People's Square, which includes the beautiful Shanghai Art Museum (exhibits galore of everything you can possibly imagine), and Nanjing Road, which is the Chinese version of 5th Avenue in New York or Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles, are incredible. Nanjing Road has block after block of modern stores, shops, eating establishments, and souvenir stands. It's all foot traffic--no cars allowed here--and it is always packed with people. Nanjing Road leads to the Shanghai Bund, the area along the Huangpu River which is famous for its trade and banking. On the other side of the Huangpu River from Nanjing Road is the Pudong area of Shanghai, with ultra-modern skyscrapers and other buildings. This is where the famous Oriental Pearl TV Tower is, a futuristic tower that is unlike anything I've ever seen. The picture included with this page shows the Pudong area with the TV tower. And the Shanghai Zoo has a panda exhibit which is fun, with two different kinds of pandas--the familiar black and white version, and a red one which is smaller and looks more like a raccoon than a panda. For me, seeing a panda "in the flesh" was a real thrill. All in all, Shanghai is a "must see" on anyone's list of places to visit in China.
