Description:

An interesting shopping experience for young and old alike can be found on Old Shanghai street and the surrounding neighborhood. Turning west at the end of Old Jiaochang road brings you down a very touristy street with an Old China feel where you'll be hounded to buy chops, old posters, tea and knick-knacks of all sorts. Two expensive but authentic looking tea houses are also on this stretch.


To the west lies a seedier area selling more useful items, things like clothes, DVDs and a few stalls offering software of dubious legality.

Old Shanghai street itself takes up the northwest quarter of the neighborhood, and has a variety of cool restaurants and interesting gardens, ponds, and Chinese architecture. Also to be found in this neighborhood are old temples and a variety of shops selling traditional Chinese snacks.
