I really loved this neighborhood (did I just out myself as a hipster?). The best way I can describe it is mid-gentrification, but admittedly I don't know the history of the place, so it could be that the new and hyper-trendy shops and restaurants have lived contently alongside traditional stores and markets for a long time and neither is going anywhere. But as it stands now, in its current balance of new and old, this is such a fantastic combination. Take the mid-level escalators, browse the fish and vegetable markets, stop in for some fresh pressed juice or fancy ice cream, and window shop for ironic tshirts and homegoods (there's an odd proliferation of animal-themed decorating products). Stick around for dinner at one of the area's sleek restaurants and you've got everything you need for a lovely half-day outing.
This little foodie heaven is hidden from most tourists, unless they know the way of the mid-level escalators! Soho have some of the exotic cuisines from Mediterranean to African! Also check out some of the small designer boutiques for unique souvenirs and gifts back home.
Fun place to walk around and chat with strangers! Fine wine and dining all over the place.
Lots of places to eat, interesting people to meet
Must go. There are so many amazing restaurants!
There are many restaurants in Suhao District, as well as many fancy shops. We had lunch at Lianxiang Tower at noon and then went up the escalator. After going down the hill, I found a restaurant here to eat. Along the way, I met many foreigners and felt very internationalized.
More shopping - expensive shopping -_-
