The Temple is 70 yuan to visit, but the street itself is a great contrast between the classic temple and Shanghai's growing modernity. there are coffee shops, ice cream parlors, and modern malls all around the area and it is worth spending some time browsing.

Thank Andrew B
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same
quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
