At night, after the whole day activities are over, a group of classmates walked along the Bund and along Nanjing Donglu, China's busiest shopping street. It was fun to spend time strolling around, shopping and relaxing. Things were much cheaper than in other big cities in Aisa, such as Hongkong, Taipei and Tokyo. Sometimes we ate western food for 60 yuan per meal; sometimes local food only cost us less than 10 yuan. As a matter of fact, Shanghai is one of the most prosperous cities in the world. Anything you can imagine is available for purchase. The main shopping streets, Nanjing Road and Huaihai Road offer so many international brand-names; If fashion is not your interest, try one of Shanghai's numerous flea markets.
