If you wanna feel something traditional, this is the best place for you. Old shanghai town looked with beautiful small old garden from Ming's dynasty make this place super touristy and #1 must visit object in Shanghai
HOW TO GO
Yu yuan Garden MRT Station line 10 exit 3
218 Anren St. Huangpu Qu, Shanghai
( if you want to go inside the garden but looking around thiss bazaar is free)
I hate history and i've been to inside the garden long time ago so i just strolled around shops. Actually, the garden inside is pretty but the entrance way to the garden just too crowded, so make sure you come early if you want to visit the garden.
And in the middle of it you can rest at Yu garden's foodcourt. It is super huge with 2 floors, you can taste all shanghai local dishes here.
NANXIANG SOUP DUMPLINGS
So many places plagiat this dumplings so becareful and make sure you find the original one. Called as Nanxiang xiaolongbao or soup dumplings because this dish originally from Nanxiang, small city located near Shanghai. Chinese xiaolongbao is more into thicker skin so it's not as chewy as Taiwanese xiaolongbao. 1 portion of xiaolongpao CNY 20 for 10 pieces and other kind is crab roe giant xiaolongbao CNY 25? It quite special because you drink all soup using straw but becareful! It pipping hot! It always has a long queue but it won't take you too long :)
