Shanghai Nanjing Lu
One of the most popular streets in Shanghai is Nanjing Lu. With a number of shops and claiming to have Asia's largest department store, Nanjing Lu is the destination for about one million visitors per day. Colorful, ample and busy in particular during weekends. Nanjing Lu is active and the attraction for many foreign and Chinese tourists.
One of its unique attractions are the life size figures depicting happy families.
And during the early mornings a number of retirees can be found taking part in activities like playing checkers, playing drums or dancing.
At night the many neon lights change Nanjing Lu into an energetic boulevard filled with flashing and ever changing neon signs.
