If you want some nightlife in Shanghai this is a good place to start. Over 20 restaurants all full and a lot of energy. Expect to pay at least 50 dollars per person without drinking.

This is where the locals hang out for something special. The atmosphere is delightful and the food is top notch and so are the prices. Not much family choice but for something indulgent this is it.

I had read such positive reviews that my hopes may have been too high for this location. The streets are narrow and wind around a bit. They are made of cobblestone similar to what is found in Paris. That was all I saw that resembled...More

If you are tired of huge, high-end malls and touristy chain restaurants, do not miss this neighborhood. There are many lovely hotels, as well as many small boutiques and unique restaurants and bars. Its also a delight just to stroll around the neighborhood.

The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a
carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled
with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area
below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most
fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can
afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and
shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park
provides the area with green space and is also home to
