Road, known as "China's No.1 shopping street", is a symbol of
Shanghai's rapid business expansion. The road starts from the Bund in
the east and ends at the junction of JingAn Temple and YanAn West Road
in the west. With 5.5 kilometers long, it passes through the center of
Shanghai city across 26 busy streets.
built in 1851, originally it was only a country path from Bund to Henan
time, Nanjing Road has been restructured, undergoing significant change.
For shopping convenience, its eastern end has an all-weather pedestrian
arcade. Over 600 businesses on Nanjing road offer countless famous brands,
superior quality, and new fashions. KFC, McDonald's, Pizza Hut, and other
world-famous food vendors line both sides of the street. In addition,
approximately a hundred traditional stores and specialty shops still provide
choice silk goods, jade, embroidery, wool, and clocks. In the evenings,
the street looks at its best, with neon lights and advertising billboards
illuminating the glorious buildings along the road.
