* Dongtai Road Antique Market: This is a street market/flea market
* Yu Gardens – fun to visit, there’s also a market nearby and lots of knick knacks.
* Also see Yu Yuan Old Street
* Jade Buddha Temple
* The Bund
* Xintiandi Hongqio Pearl Market
I explored this market pretty late during my stay, mostly pearls, beads, jewelry, semi-precious stones. I bought a jade necklace from a shop nearby.
* Old French Concession
Impressions from Shanghai: consumption, consumption, consumption…addiction to luxury goods, addiction to their gadgets, emulate and adore everything western while manners being still Chinese, beautiful bars and restaurants, despite of the great local food, interest in junk food, highly educated but stressed young generation…
what not to miss: Bar hopping on the Bund… the Fellas, Long Bar at Waldorf Astoria, Bar Rouge, the Nest, Flair…
