pedestrian mall Xintiandi. A car-free
shopping, eating and entertainment zone,
Xintiandi is a very interesting area. It has
narrow alleys with restored traditional stone
gate houses, a shopping mall with a multiplex
and some other houses that have been converted
into bookstores, cafes and restaurants. Seating

on weekends as well as on weekdays. Xintiandi

tourist program, every evening cruises leave from
the Bund and go on upstream. The cruise offers

whole. Dinner cruises serve quite a palatable

acrobatics, musicals, opera, dance, theater, and
