    M&Ms World: Get carried away!

    by theguardianangel Updated Jul 19, 2015

    This is the ultimate place for M&Ms lovers and kids at heart! I’m sure if you have a kid, nephew, niece (kids at heart relatives/friends) back at home, you won’t miss this shop and bring something for your loved ones. I was mesmerized seeing this big chocolate shop! I’m a big fan ever since I’m a kid! I remembered when my mom used to bring chocolates for my sister and I every time she’s back home. I love the big size statues of the anthropomorphic M&Ms characters that come in different colors!

    What to buy: M&Ms shop occupies 2 floors of the Brilliance Shimao International Plaza building. In the entrance, there are souvenir items found like t-shirts, mugs, pillows, key chains, etc. with the different faces of the M&Ms characters. On the 2nd floor, there are a lot more of souvenir varieties like headphones, robes, stuff toys, play cards, tumblers, etc. Also, in the 2nd floor, you will find the “Great Wall of Chocolate” having a number of dispensers with 22 colors of chocolates in different varieties- milk chocolate, peanut and almond! All you need to do is to get a plastic bag at the corner and dispense how much amount of chocolates you want! So awesome! Just don’t get too much carried away or you will leave the shop with an empty pocket for the bag of chocolates you bought! The price of the chocolates will depend on the weight, like 1 kg = 170 RMB (just an example- I forgot how much per kilo).

    What to pay: You can pay by cash or credit card. It depends on the things you buy, for example tumblers cost from 85-150RMB

    this is what I'm talking about baby! mugs, mugs!!! souvenirs all you can! shopping accomplished! screaming anthropomorphic M&Ms character

    Piao ting 飘婷: Tailor-made Cheongsam

    by edelng Updated Nov 27, 2013

    If you intend to tailor made your own cheongsam but do not intend to spend too much, you should bring your own cloth/material to the shops in Changle Road or Maoming Road. This shop charges 600yuan for cotton materials or 800yuan for silk material. It's is only 4 shops away from the famous shop Hanyi - whose tailor made cheongsam for the movie "Mood for Love". It takes only 3 days to tailor-made.

    We saw a display green cheongsam blouse with hand stitched flowers. We wanted a different colour and requested a made-to-measure blouse with the same flower designs. The manager took out a catalog of sample coloured materials for us to choose. The cost was 1400 yuan. It is more expensive as it needs to stitch the flowers. The manager honestly told us that the seamstress uses a hand machine to stitch. This blouse took 2 weeks to tailor-made and was air mailed to us.

    Nanjing Road

    by IreneMcKay Written Jul 10, 2013

    Our hotel was very close to Nanjing Road - one of the main shopping streets in Shanghai. The street is about 3 and a half miles long. It starts at the Bund and runs to the junction of Jing'an Temple and Yan'an West Street.

    This street has lots of shops, restaurants and some interesting sculptures. It is busy day and night and is good for people watching. At night there are many bright neon signs.

    Qipu Lu: Shops, Shops and more Shops!

    by rabbit06 Updated Sep 3, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Looking for a bargain you will find it here with famous brand names that they tell me are factory outlets or end of runs?? ok, that maybe correct but who cares the shopping is fantastic! Once you get over the initial shock of stalker type sales people who follow you around offering all sorts of goods and accept some of your own as we did on the clothing floor, who were quite helpful (husband and wife) and not that intimidating after all, even offering to show rabbit where the mens room was and informing him that it is 3rmb to use...lol Hope we get them on our next shopping trip here! ( unbelievable....we did have them again on our 2011 shopping trip....lol )

    What to buy: Shirley came away with a lot of lady's clothing and rabbit could not help himself, spent up large on brand name t-shirts and sweatshirts, which are in his size....so lucky! Some even had the correct labels such as Billabong and Quicksilver, wow!!!.....sshhiisshhhhh................lmao!

    What to pay: Start bargaining at 10% of the asking price as there are so many selling the same or similar products, they will call you back if you decide to walk off. Brand named t-shirts you can get for 30rmb or $5.00 NZ now that's fantastic shopping and i think Lindyz would have had kittens here, taken along her bank manager and a removal truck!!

    cnr Qipu Lu & Henan(N) Lu Let's Shop! more room in here! outside shops! this place has shops everywhere!
