Crowne Plaza Fudan Shanghai is close to Wujiaochang (literally Five-angle District) and Daxue Road (literally University Road), where there are many shops, cafés and wonderful restaurants.
With five roads converging into a star-shaped cluster, Wujiaochang is a prosperous sub-center of the city, full of large shopping malls such as Wanda Plaza, Bai Lian You Yi Cheng and Walmart. There are especially some widely-recommended Chinese food restaurants, including Tsui Wah Restaurant, Wai Po Jia and Wang Xiang Yuan, which must be appealing to those who would like to try authentic Chinese cuisines.
Daxue Road, however, is the right place for foreign visitors seeking international cuisines around Fudan University. In addition to the beautiful street scenes, visitors can enjoy a decent full course meal in a country-featured style, while the average price is usually a little bit higher than that in Chinese food restaurants. More information on Daxue Road can be reached through this webpage and this webpage from Shanghai WOW.
