Qi Pu Lu, Zha Bei District

Far from Beijing’s hip Sanlitun district is Shanghai’s Qi Pu Lu, known in English as “Cheap Road”:

It’s a major destination in Shanghai that I’ve only recently discovered, and I’m so glad I did, as this is the kind of thing I saw:

But this girl was dressed in a style more typical of Qi Pu Lu:

Girls on Qi Pu Lu are usually dressed super feminine, which is a pervasive style in China that I’ve failed to capture in Shanghai until my Qi Pu Lu adventures.

If you want to find clothes such as the ones you’ve seen above, or just see Chinese people like the ones you’ve seen above, head to Qi Pu Lu!!
