Most nightlife options are situated in the central areas of Shanghai. Despite this, venues such as the Zuanxing and the Yicheng are only a couple of stops on the Metro and provide karaoke and nightclubs. Shanghai Brewery is a nice place to enjoy top-quality beer. The choice of eateries is endless and there are plenty where visitors can sample famed Shanghainese dishes such as hotpot, dumplings and noodle soup. A few restaurants serve the likes of Italian and Japanese food.Shopping
Shopping for unusual articles is best in the locality of Nanjing Road. Jade, statues, porcelain, traditional paintings, Chinese herbs and tea leaves, and decorated balls are among the great souvenirs here. The Songfang and Bailian shopping malls are nearer to Hongqiao. Their shops sell fashion clothing, electrical and mobile phone accessories, and toiletries. Shops in the airport itself stock similar items, but with more international brand names and duty-free options.
