Shanghai

Nanjing Road East ''' in Huangpu District (Shanghai Huangpu) extends from the Bund to People's Park, and most of it is a very busy pedestrians-only strip. * '''Nanjing Road West (Shanghai Jing'an#Buy)''' is the continuation into Jing'an District (Shanghai Jing'an). A landmark there is '''Jing'an Temple''', a beautiful ancient building with a metro station named after it. thumb Shikumen buildings (File:Site of the First National Congress of the Communist Party of China.jpg) Other major sights are in the former '''French Concession (Shanghai French Concession)'''. This has always been a fashionable area — even in the colonial period, many famous Chinese lived there — and it remains so today with much of Shanghai's best entertainment and shopping. We treat it as a single district and give it its own article. Within it are: * '''Xujiahui (Shanghai French Concession#Xujiahui)''', the center of Xuhui District, with a metro interchange (lines 1 and 9), major roads, huge malls and high-end residential and office buildings * '''Huaihai Road (Shanghai French_Concession#Huaihai_Road)''', an upmarket shopping street which many Shanghai people prefer over Nanjing Road * '''Hengshan Road (Shanghai French_Concession#Hengshan_Road)''', which runs from Huaihai Road to Xujiahui, has Shanghai's largest cluster of restaurants and bars. * '''Xintiandi (Shanghai French_Concession#Xintiandi)''', an area of old shikumen ("stone gate", a unique Shanghai style) houses, redeveloped with shopping malls, trendy bars and restaurants, and much tourism * '''Tianzifang (Shanghai French_Concession#Tianzifang)''', another area of shikumen housing that has been redeveloped. It is newer than Xintiandi and emphasizes arts, crafts and boutique shopping where Xintiandi stresses brand-name goods and entertainment. For a taste of 1920s Shanghai, with much classic Western-style architecture, head for the stately old buildings of the Bund (Shanghai Bund) and nearby parts of Huangpu (Shanghai Huangpu); this is still a major shopping area as well. For boutique shopping, small galleries and craft shops, and interesting restaurants, try the French Concession (Shanghai French Concession). If your taste runs more to very modern architecture, remarkably tall buildings and enormous shopping malls, the prime districts for skyscrapers are Pudong (Shanghai Pudong) and Jing'an (Shanghai Jing'an). See the linked articles for details. Water towns thumb Zhujiajao (File:Zhujiajiao-04.JPG) There are water towns in the Western suburbs, popular with both Shanghai residents and visitors. They are quite scenic with canals as the main method of transport and many traditional-style bridges and buildings. * '''Zhujiajiao (Shanghai Zhujiajiao)''' is right out at the Western edge of the municipality in Qingpu (Shanghai Qingpu) district, and can be reached by bus. It is quite popular with Shanghai residents, both Chinese and expatriates. There are some bars run by expats. * '''Qibao (Shanghai Qibao)''' is closer to downtown in Minhang (Shanghai Minhang) district, and can be reached by metro (line 9, Qibao station, then walk a block South). It is smaller than Zhujiajiao and gets a higher proportion of tourists. * '''Fengjing (Shanghai Fengjing)''' in Jinshan (Shanghai Jinshan) district has many artists, even its own fairly well-known "Jinshan peasant" style of painting. Metro line 22 will get you to Jinshan. This type of town is found all over the Yangtze Delta (East_China#Other_destinations) area. In particular, there are several in the Suzhou and Hangzhou regions as well as in Shanghai. Museums and galleries *
