Since the first half of the 20th century, Shanghai has developed into China's largest commercial city, and along with that has come enormous shopping opportunities for visitors to enjoy. Shanghai is one of the most prosperous cities in the world, and because of that, anything you can imagine is available for purchase there. The sheer abundance of shops in the city selling both local and imported goods is astounding.
The major shopping areas in Shanghai are pedestrian-only Nanjing East Road, Huaihai Road, and Xujiahui. These three districts are all sought out for their mid-scale to high-end department stores and boutiques. Nanjing is famous as a main shopping street in China and certainly the busiest shopping center in Shanghai. It boasts over 600 shops including many very old shops, famous shops and stores with unique features, such as round the clock shopping. Huaihai Road has become as popular as Nanjing Road with its nearly 400 shops. In addition, the Yuyuan Market is a favorite among many due to its atmosphere of Old Shanghai.
Cultural Street on Fuzhou Road is lined art stores selling materials for Western and Chinese arts and crafts. There are also more than 30 bookstores, some of which are over 100 years old.
The renovation of Shanghai’s riverfront Bund district has brought in luxury shopping to the region. Designer labels such as Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Cartier and Patek Philippe now all enjoy beautiful views of the Huangpu River.
The French Concession is the area of the city Shanghai once designated for the French colonialists and consists of today's Luwan and Xuhui Districts. It is a great shopping area, with fashionable boutiques selling everything from designer handbags to pricey silks.
