The Travel Diary | Shanghai pt 4 (Huaihai Rd and Line Cafe)

If you go to Shanghai, you must past through Huaihai Road as it is a major shopping destination. You can get there via metro at South Shaanxi Road or Middle Huaihai Road station. I actually prefer Huaihai Road to Nanjing Road purely because it is more local whilst Nanjing Road is more targeted at foreign tourists so it can be really crowded. Since it was part of the French Concession, many of the buildings have a French architecture feel which is lovely. Many of the stores are high-end. Think Prada, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, etc. The Chinese love their designer brands but there are the more affordable stores there like H&M, Forever 21, Uniqlo, etc.

One place I recommend going is the Line Store and Cafe. It is opposite H&M and my mum and I had no intention of going there. It just happened to be near a public toilet and I noticed the wall was colourful and funky and there was a huge queue. Even if you don't use Line (it's like an Asian version of Facebook Messenger), it is too cute to not go. Brown (the bear) and his friends are so cute! It's perfect for taking pictures and there is a lot of cute merchandise (not exactly cheap though) and upstairs is a cafe.
