You can try bargain shopping at mall beside the Shanghai Science and Techology museum. You can get there via the Shanghai Metro. They sell mostly imitation/non-genuine clothing articles like shirts, jeans, and jackets. You can haggle with the sellers but be careful because they can be very persistant and usually chase you even after have left his shop.
Light-rail Pearl Line
The elevated light-rail Pearl Line is planned to run from Minhang in the south to Baoshan in the north with a total length of 62 km. The first phase of the project starts at Caohejing in the south and end at Jiangwan Town with a total length of 24.97 km, passing the 6 districts of Xuhui, Changning, Putuo, habei, Hongkou and Baoshan. Along the line are 19 stops. Except the stops of Caohejing, Shilong Road and Shanghai Railway Station on the ground, the other 16 stops are all elevated from the ground.
Trendy Shops and Restaurants in Xintiandi
A great little place for modern trendy shops and restaurants. I don't shop here just because I don't have that much money left and most of the stuff here are quiet expensive for Shanghai standard. This shopping area is targeted towards expatriates who live or work nearby and tourists alike. During the day, there are not so much going on, but at night, the restaurants start to fill up with people and the stores are all lit with lights. It's definitely a place that you should check out when visiting Shanghai.
Completed in 1998, the graceful pagoda-like Jinmao Tower - with 88 occupied floors and a height of 421 metres - was until recently China's tallest building, before being usurped by the Shanghai World Financial Center next door. The top floors (53rd to 87th floors) house the Grand Hyatt hotel and there is an observation deck on the 88th floor. The lower floors are occupied by offices, and there is a food court in the basement. As an excuse to visit, pop into the Grand Hyatt's lobby to see its vertigo-inducing barrel-vaulted 21-storey atrium before you stop for drinks in Cloud 9, one of the world's highest bar.
Both tourists and local Shanghainese alike gravitate towards the Bund as the heart of central Shanghai. Most people come for leisure, yet the Bund is actually home to many of the largest financial institutions of the city, and of China. Though Lujiazui is an important financial center of the city, Zhongshan Road E is considered China's Wall Street. Thus the Bund symbolizes Shanghai's rising star as China's fastest developing city, and is fittingly reminiscent of Shanghai's heyday in the 1930's.
One of the key features of the Bund is the contrast it provides. On the West side of Zhongshan Road sits the historic European style buildings, the oldest of which is the Jin Jiang hotel built in 1906, this is called 'Puxi' . Just opposite on the Eastern side of the river is the area called 'Pudong' where Shanghai's most modern constructions can be seen. These include the Pearl TV Tower and the Jing Mao Tower. These ultra-modern even space age looking buildings form the most famous view of Pudong's Lu Jia Zui which has come to symbolize Shanghai today.
Don't miss Huangpu Park, the nearest observing point to "touch" the Pearl tower. A long-distance telescope (1 yuan) gives you closer views of Pudong.
"Monument to the People's Heroes"
The Bund Historical Museum, at the base of the Monument to the People's Heroes, has an interesting collection of historical photographs.

"another shot in the park"
Some will prefer the Huangpu River Cruise. There are 5 companies offering cruises and ticket prices range from 45 yuan to 100 yuan. Departure times aren't fixed, but usually there are three sailings a day, one in the morning, one in the afternoon and one in the evening. You can check the schedule posted at the Jingling Pier (just 200 meters away from the ferry terminal), where you also can buy a ticket and board the boat.
