I am in my fifties, travelling solo and hadn't been to Shanghai before. MJ provided me with a solid base for the rest of my Shanghai stay with excellent pre and post tour follow-up.

This is the third time my husband and I have taken a tour with the ladies from Shopping Tours Shanghai. Hands down this is the best money I've spent coming to Shanghai. Shopping in the markets can be intimidating but the guides with STS take the stress out of all the options and bargaining. This time around we did the... More

I spent the day shopping with Milica from Shanghai Shopping Tours. She took me to many different shops and even though there was no pressure to buy, unfortunately, I couldn't resist at many of them! She was open to wherever I wanted to go and showed me some fantastic little shops with great prices. And I have to thank MJ... More

Shanghai is a mecca of shopping and for those looking for guidance and assurance on quality then this shopping tour is a must. The tailors are superb and I've loved everything I had... More

While in Shanghai on business for only a few busy days I decided to give a shopping tour a shot and was recommended Shopping Tours Shanghai by a friend.

Without MJ´s expertise experience and suggestions I would never have been able to order the custom made clothing, get just the right pearls I needed and the wonderful prescritpion glasses.

I had booked the half day tour based on a recommendation - mainly I was interested in getting tailored clothing.

This tour was a fantastic way to shop in Shanghai. MJ and Suzy were excellent in taking us to the places to shop, giving recommendations about what to buy, and who to buy from. We knew that going with their recommendations would ensure we got quality and the best prices. We would have been lost without their help! I also... More

Amazing tour with custom made clothing, pearls, scarfs, prescription glasses, etc. MJ is delightful and professional in her ability to weave you through all the shops and stalls. Couldn't do it without her help. I was so excited with all my items, just wish I had more days with MJ. I would recommend MJ's tour any time.

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
