Shanghai Old Street is old. Really old. Apparently. But I reckon all of that wood has been replaced a fair few times. If you really want to experience large crowds that don't know where they are going (and to be fair, you'd probably be one of them, like we were) then this is the place to go. Lots of shops to buy cheap (and not so cheap) tack, street artists and some cool wood carvings are all around you. We popped into a tea shop, no sorry, the tea shop in the middle of it all. Looks like a boat on the inside, and I really liked the bloke with the puppet theatre, hitting his drums and bells, citing his repertoire whilst kids looked through the viewing glasses.
