A Shopper's Delight.....
Huaihai Road is Shanghai's answer to New York's 5th Avenue, Beverly Hills' Rodeo Drive, or Rome's Via Veneto.
On this road you can find every brand name imaginable, as well as numerous local shops, stores, and malls all along both sides of the street.
This is NOT the place to get local antiques, trinkets, or haggle over gifts for people back home. This street is for serious shoppers who like to get up early, and shop until the stores close late at night. Women clothes, men's clothes, shoes, accessories, perfume, etc. etc. etc. As much as your credit card(s) has available.
All-you-can-eat Japanese food here
You pay 150RMB/person for all-u-can-eat and drink, which includes hibachi and sushi, tons of seafood too(shrimp, cod, salmon, sashimi, etc). It is a lot of fun to sit around the big table with the food being cooked right in front of you.. and get to know other people and chat about shanghai!! Sashimi, shrimp, Clam..
Yuyuan Gardens - a busy place!
This is part of the old town and gives a flavour of old China in new Shanghai. My first visit was during a holiday weekend and it was packed with people. There are plenty of bizzars and strange things to buy if you visit here, however be aware that you can buy the same items at a much more reasonable price on the side streets around the main garden area.
Don't forget to bargain as usual!
