Few complex in the same area called Qi Pu Road which have many shops selling all kinds of clothes, bags, shoes, accessories. Easiest way is to go by bus 167 from Nanjing Walking Street. Bargain !!! Its a must ! You must slash at least 50% off as you won't find price tags here normally.
If you are looking for western food in Shanghai, this place is brilliant. The atmosphere, service and food are excellent. The building is very old and you kind of get a 1920's ambience mixed in with modern decor on the inside - if you know what I mean. The menu changes
One of the 1000 places to see
The Shanghai museum was listed in the book, "1000 places to see before you die". It's got amazing bronzes, magnificent vases, old money, caligraphy, and silk paintings.
You'll need a few hours here to properly give it justice.
Shanghai - Chinas modern metropolis.
"My thoughts on Shanghai."
Anne and I visited Shanghai for 3 days in July 2008. Although we had an excellent time in Shanghai, I would not say that this is one of my favorite destinations in the world. In fact, like Hong Kong and Singapore, I believe that Shanghai is a perfect stop over destination to unwind for 3 or 4 days.
Apart from the Acrobats Theatre, the Megalev train, The Bund at night, The Oriental Pearl Tower, the Yu Gardens and the Shanghai Museum, I found Shanghai to be just another city that could be anywhere else in the world.
"The Oriental Pearl Tower"
Known for its architecture, and the fact that it was the first modern building in Shanghai, the Oriental Pearl Tower is a tourist attraction for its spectacular views and its rotating restaurant.
On the day that we visited, the weather was perfect and it was quite a hot day. By the time we arrived at the tower it was becoming very overcast and within an hour the smog of the city was quite horrendous!
The easiest way to get to the Tower is to take the metro to Lujiazui station in Pudong and depart the station via exit 1. As soon as you “hit the sidewalk” the Pearl Tower is directly in front of you. The metro ticket was 4.50 Yuan and the entry to the viewing platform was 120 Yuan.
"The Shanghai museum"
The Shanghai museum is located in the centre of the City, with the main entrance located on the Peoples Square. The museum offers an excellent exhibit of most of the cultural relics from China.
Although not large, this 5 story building has dedicated floors to particular themes and periods in time.
Anne and I visited the museum three weeks before the Olympics and the ground floor of the museum was dedicated to the history of the Olympics.
