Wanshang is a real hustle and bustle with birds chirping, vendors shouting and shoppers haggling. It feels more like a hub where seniors hang out and meet others who share their pastime interests, like bird keeping or cricket fighting. Flower stalls are small and passages cramped, and while there’s only a limited supply of flowers and plants, it’s still worth a visit for a slice of old Shanghai life.
