    Great busy area for lots of activities
    I love how busy this street always is. It’s in central area in Shanghai, and perfect place for many occasions - solo shopping, friends hangout or dates. You get to see all walks of life here, and good places for street photography

    Good scenery with calm weather. Smoke pollution everywhere and standard of living is high. Best visit for first timer.
    Nanjing Lu is a busy street with all kinds of people around the world. Best to go is on Dec-Jan . Many shops and malls to visit. Prices are not cheap. Shanghainese will tend to smoke everywhere (outdoor or indoor). I advise to wear face mask for better health. For first time tourists, it is worth the trip.

    Must visit in Shanghai
    This is a pedestrian street in the heart of Shanghai and well connected. Almost all brands and departmental stores are here and this is adjacent to the bund. So basically you can get here in the afternoon and spend as much time as you want and proceed to the bund for the evening tour. Lots of places to eat, shop and plenty of benches on the street to sit and relax. Go when the weather is better.

A great shopping road if you have money to spend. But also just a great people watching road. Has a nice atmosphere at night and well worth walking along the road at night.

The pedestrian only shopping street near the bund. Many restaurants and shops along this fairly long stretch - Daimaru department store, Apple, Addidas, dozens of local brands

"Nanjing Er Lu" nearby was a wonderful quiet street with good restaurants and the fabulous Shanghai Flower Market, a huge commercial site with very few tourists. Fine hotel there on a 20 acre private park was a joy as well.

This street is a must visit!! This shopping street, the 5.5-km-long (3.4-mile-long) Nanjing Road, starts at the Bund in the east and ends in the west at the junction of Jing'an Temple and West Yan'an Street. You can even see dancing peoples.

is a busy road in Shanghai and it the main shopping district of Shanghai
road. It is nice place for walking ,eat local food and drink fresh juice. Beware of scammers. They may offer you to buy dollars at an attractive price, play gambling, or buy counterfeit goods for international brands. Do not go into alleys or basements, as you may be exposed to harm or have your money stolen.
