We'll meet near People's Square, a well-known landmark in Shanghai. Adjacent to the square is a fabulous street that's very famous for its excellent street food and dumplings. After this, we visit the South Bund Fabric Market. With over 300 tailors, it can be overwhelming to choose the right tailor for your needs. I know the market like the back of my hand and will ensure you meet the right tailors and get the best deals!
