East Nanjing Road is one of the most famous and bustling commercial streets in Shanghai, starting from its west end Xizang Road and reaching its east end to the Bund, with the total length of 1,599 meters including one section of pedestrian street.


East Nanjing Road was firstly named 'Park Road' since the establishment of Shanghai's second horse racing track in 1855, with the original length of 300 meters. Thanks to the horse races held in that period, the street thrived fast with the subsequent opening of foreign banks, pharmacies, shops, restaurants and hotels. After the extension in 1862, the street’s west end had reached to Jing’an Temple, crossing the city's central area, and it was later called the 'Main Road' or 'Da Ma Lu 大马路' , which formally named 'Nanjing Road' in 1865.

In the year of 1945, the government renamed the east section of Nanjing Road as 'East Nanjing Road', which starts from Middle Xizang Road to East Zhongshan Road, meanwhile renamed west section to 'West Nanjing Road'.


A lot of heritage buildings standing along East Nanjing Road were built in diverse architecture styles, and have been preserved well.
