Concierge.com's insider take:

Once home to the impoverished Chinese masses—who lived in close quarters here while wealthy foreigners spread out around them—the old city is full of twisting alleys and street vendors. Here you will catch a glimpse of the cramped, colorful old world (its origins date back to the 16th century) in the bustling heart of a modern city. Start at the Dongtai Lu Antique Market, where street-side stalls display myriad antique (and antique-looking) objets d'art. Continue past neighborhood Buddhist temples like the bustling Fangzangjiang, then line up with the locals at the 100-year-old Nanxiang Dumpling House inside the Yu Garden Bazaar for soupy pork and crabmeat xiaolongbao dumplings, before heading to the winding paths and craggy rockery of the Yu Garden.
