Nanjing Road

Nanjing 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.

First built in 1851, originally it was only a country path from Bund to Henan Road. Over 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.
