Nanjing Road in Shanghai Tour Guide:
While in Shanghai, do not miss a chance to shop-till-you-drop at Nanjing Road, China’s topmost shopping destination, which is incidentally also, one of the world’s busiest shopping streets with a footfall of over a million people daily! Traditional shops co-exists with swanky malls and traditional eateries stand side-by-side with fast-food joints.
There is something for everyone, for all budgets and interests. The pedestrian-only Nanjing East Road, stretching from the Bund Waterfront Promenade to People’s Square caters to all pockets and interests, while the Nanjing West Road is the destination of choice for luxury shoppers with deep pockets and flashy credit cards.
Catch a Chinese classic opera at the Shanghai Grand Opera Palace, one of the top opera houses in the world or the Beijing Opera; enjoy an action-packed awe-inspiring Shanghai Acrobatics Show; or get a glimpse into China’s burgeoning art scene at the Shanghai Art Gallery. Those curious about what shape Shanghai will take by the end of 2020 will find the answer to their questions in the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Hall.
You can also head to the People’s Square, the political and cultural centre of Shanghai, to relax, indulge in people watching and pay your respects to the local deity at the 247 AD Jing’an Temple.
