One of the two major commercial streets in Shanghai (in addition to Huai Hai Road), Nan Jing Road spans 5.5 kilometres east to west. On both sides of the road are more than 600 shops and shopping centers carrying high quality, brand goods. The eastern part of the road is pedestrian-only with various attractions as well as its shops. Once the premier shopping street, Huai Hai Road has recently eclipsed it. Nevertheless, it attracts many people. Transportation is convenient as visitors can catch the metro at various points along the road.

Built in 1901, the six-kilometer-long Huai Hai Road commemorates the Huai Hai Battle during Liberation. Today, this road has become synonymous with what is trendy and fashionable in Shanghai. While the stretch between Shan Xi Road and Xi Zang Road is the busiest section (and best for people-watching), this commercial street contains more than 400 shops, restaurants and businesses. The remnants of French architecture give the street its cosmopolitan charm. Many nearby attractions add to its appeal, including the proximity of Doctor Sun Yat-sen Former Residence and Memorial Hall

Fabric Market in Shanghai - on SHownbylocals.com

If you prefer tailor-made to ready-made, head for Shanghai’s fabric market. For the best deals go to the third floor (of three) where stallholders pay less rent and therefore offer better prices. When choosing your fabric beware of fakes: genuine silk should cost between 30-40 yuan per metre; cashmere 90-140 yuan per metre. Every stall has a tailor, and you should expect at least two fittings.

If you don’t have time to go to the fabrics market, some of the tailors offer also to come to your hotel. They will bring some selected fabrics with them.

If money is no object, most of the five-star hotels also have their own tailors who can make you a suit costing anywhere between 2,000 and 7,000 yuan.
