An evening at Nanjing Road

Nanjing Road is the famous Shanghai shopping district. It a long stretch of pedestrian malls with many shops selling cloths, watches, foodstuff and everything you want. The road is lined up with many boutiques on both side of the road. The road is so long that there is a commuting trolley cars moving up and down the road .

I was here last year during the day time. I have heard that at night, the road is lighted up with colourful neon lights. I decided to take a journey there to see it for myself. The journey there was easy. I just need to hop on to the local metro line which is very comfortable and efficient.

When I reached Nanjing Road, the whole road was lighted up beautifully with ocean of people moving up and down the road. There were sales everywhere especially for the winter cloths which they need to clear off because spring is coming.

I began my journey from the east side to the west side of the road, shooting the scenes with my camera. I reached the end of the road, I decided to join in the fun...l shopping!!!

I managed to buy some t-shirts and some shirts for myself which I need to keep me warm during my stay here. I did not anticipate the weather here will be so cold and I did not take enough warm cloths.

Anywhere where are the some of the photos taken during my journey there. There are more posted in my Picasa Web Album. Click here to see more photos.

No, this building is not at Nanjing Road. I was told it's a men's spa... no woman is allowed into the building. During the day, it looks like a Government Building. At night, the lights of the building make it look like a Grand Palace.

The tallest Pizza Hut store I have seen

I was dazzled by the colourful lights

The biggest Coca Cola bottle I have ever seen. Other than the giant Coke can that is at Genting Highlands

At the end of Nanjing Road. See the ocean of people

Wow, the stores were like reaching for the sky!!!
