Meandering between Shanghai thoroughfare Fuxing Lu and glitzy shopping street Huaihai Lu, Nanchang Lu easily flies under the radar – but it's got a whole lot going for it. Offering some light relief from all the megacity bustle, the sleepy, tree-lined street (that turns vibrant hues of red and orange every autumn as leaves start to turn) is lined with cafés designed with Moments in mind and more trendy boutiques than you can shake your purse at.
From low-key restaurants you'll return to again and again, to world-class cocktail bars and cultural hotspots, take a few hours to uncover the best things to do on Nanchang Lu, with a few nearby attractions added into the mix.
