We went to the first of the list. Start of the tour right out of the stone house (south Pudong) with a typical covered Chinese market.

On the menu: dumpling, noodle, fruits & vegetables, spices, tea and live fish. High color and smell!

Yangpu district is the heart of Shanghai. The atmosphere is electric, many, sound and animation. Renmin Square is a nice park like Central Park in New York where you come out of this excitement of People Square.

After purchasing a pancake with vegetables inside for 20 Y. Direction The Bund with a long walk on Nanjing Road. This street also looks like a very famous street of New York: Broadway. Department store, big giant screen, thrift and restaurants. Warning, it’s very easy to get lost in this street.
