Nanjing Lu
China's insider take:

China's most celebrated shopping street, Nanjing Lu sweeps across the city center through the heart of the French Concession. Although many retailers have been replaced by luxury shops (or steel and glass office buildings), there's still faded colonial charm in the few 1920s-era buildings that dot the bustling road. Don't miss the vast Shanghai No. 1 Department Store, known as Dai Sun when it opened in 1934. Today it is packed with crowds and brightly packaged, slightly tacky Chinese goods, including clothing, electronics, and cosmetics (800–830 Nanjing Dong Lu; 86-21-6322-3344). In contrast, at the western end of the street, the shiny Plaza 66 houses a bevy of luxury brands, among them Louis Vuitton, Prada, and Hermès. An enormous atrium lights the mall's interior, while a pianist soothes nerves jangled by too much spending (1266 Nanjing Xi Lu; 86-21-6279-0910; ).
