Nanjing Road

Nanjing Road (南京路) is a 3.5 mile stretch of road that houses Shanghai’s primary shopping market, and the world’s longest shopping district. Most of the luxury and modern shops lie along Nanjing Road East. While the history of this road has been recorded since the 1840s, some context of the term “Nanjing Road” only include Nanjing Road East. The east/west boundary is defined at the point where Nanjing Road and People’s Park meet, where the road shifts to Nanjing Road West.
