Southwest of the Bund towards Yuyuan Gardens is the touristic and crowded Old Street lined with shops, temples and traditional tea houses. But, come in the early morning hours, walk down the many alleys around the area and watch the local market teeming with vegetable sellers showing off their baskets filled with fresh greens. This is a small area with arched passages surrounded by nineteenth century buildings surprisingly still preserved amidst the rapid growth of the city ultra urban development.
A charming market within the walls of old buildings – a nice walk to get a glimpse into vanishing Old Shanghai.
