2. Nanjing Road
When it comes to retail therapy, Nanjing Road has historically been the place to visit. The pedestrian road continues to be a marketplace hub for anything you might be after, from art to antiques to budget-friendly souvenirs. You can find silk goods, jade and embroidery along with the world’s top designer brands. Constructed during the 19th century, the road is a cornerstone of Shanghai’s vibrant commercial life. Be sure to sample some dumplings when you’re out on a shopping spree.
