Night Walk in Shanghai – Huaihai Road to Nanjing Road
Huaihai Road or Huaihai Lu (淮海路) is a road in Shanghai. The central section of Huaihai Road is one of the two major shopping streets in central Shanghai; the other is Nanjing Road.
Compared with the more touristy Nanjing Road, Huaihai Road is more upscale, and is the preferred destination of local residents.
Huaihai Road comprises three sections, the main section being Middle Huaihai Road in the former French Concession of Shanghai.
Middle Huaihai Road is also well known by its former French name Avenue Joffre (霞飛路).
Huaihai Road East was in the original French Concession and was formerly known as Rue Ningpo (寧波路), while Huaihai Road West was an extra-settlement road built by the Shanghai International Settlement and formerly known as Jordan Road (喬敦路).
