Xujiahui is about as central Shanghai as you can get. The area is known for its many shopping malls as well as its eponymous park. The neighbourhood is also home to China third largest football stadium as you can see in Shanghai neighborhoods map– a multi-use space enjoyed by local residents when Shanghai SIPG football club is not playing. Located in Changning District, Zhongshan Park is another very central neighbourhood with a constantly busy metro stop. Suzhou Creek flows from Tai Lake all the way to the Bund in Shanghai Huangpu District. As a neighbourhood, Suzhou Creek refers to the area around the river in northeastern Shanghai.

Pudong, the district east of the Huangpu river, is so large that it is almost unfair to classify it as one single neighbourhood. Up until 1990, this massive swath of land was comprised of nothing but backwater farms. Xintiandi refers directly to an affluent, car-free shopping and dining area in central Huangpu District. The neighbourhood is also the site of the first congress of the Communist Party of China as its shown in Shanghai neighborhoods map; so within the flashiness of Xintiandi there is also historical significance. Located way up in the northeastern Yangpu District, Wujiaochang often goes unnoticed by many urbanites (to their great shame). Home to some of China greatest universities, such as the prestigious Fudan, the neighbourhood is young, vibrant and growing year on year.

Located towards the Hongqiao Airport in western Shanghai as its mentioned in Shanghai neighborhoods map, Gubei is known for its large Korean and Japanese expat populations. As such, this is the best place in the city to get barbecue or sushi. People Square with its street food, impressive museums, and nightlife make up this central neighborhood. Stock up on street snacks at Yunnan Road Food Street, where you can try lamb skewers and Shanghainese noodles.
