My husband and I had a great day shopping. Our guide (MJ) helped us to find the best shopping spots and also wonderful places like the flower market and one of the the food markets. Splended lunch at a very nice restaurant. Highly recommended

A great shopping tour that was tailored to our requests. Once intros were made between our guide 'MJ' and ourselves, we were asked what we were looking for. As we were in Shanghai in January (winter) we were the only 2 people on the tour and so it was totally tailored to the products/quality we were looking for. Our guide... More

I was a bit aprehensive about spending $200.00 US dollars to take a shopping tour, but at our very first stop I realized that it was the best money I have ever spent. The places we stopped were wonderful and the bargains already made for us were more than worth the money spent on the trip. Emily was FABULOUS and... More

Well...maybe not the gold, but it did bag silk scarves, jade bracelets, pearl earrings, leather handbags, porcelain vases, and cashmere coats. Our guide on December 26, 2012 was Sarah and she maintained a comfortable pace while covering more ground than I knew possible in one day. Our driver was always waiting with a smile and an opened mini-van door and... More

New to Shanghai? Don’t speak Mandarin? Don’t have weeks to spend exploring all the wrong places? Don't know how to give directions to the cab driver? Then the possibility you’ll get outside the malls with the same products and prices you’d find anywhere else in the world and experience the Shanghai shopping everyone talks about without mishap is slim to...

This was the first visit for myself and my daughter to Shanghai. We wanted to go shopping as we had heard Shanghai was amazing in this respect, however as neither of us speak a word of Mandarin we were concerned about communication and where to even begin our shopping adventures. Shanghai Shopping Tours solved all our problems. Our guide Emily... More

Hi Emily was our guide and we had a great day. Emily provided excellent advice on where to shop and what to buy. I couldn't believe how much ground we covered in one day - fabric market (where you can get clothing custom made), silk, jewellery, paper products, and an amazing pottery place. She also took us through a local... More

When we took our first shopping tour in Shanghai in August 2011 I never imagined that I would be back 16 months latter. Thankfully, my wife Karen never let's any grass grow under her feet and saw to it that her, my 20 year old daughter and myself would experience Shanghai as a family in Decmber 2012.

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
