Moreover, being combined with Xujiahui commercial circles, it forms a pattern of recreational business that is dislocated and complementary, and it comes into being a famous characteristic street in Shanghai. 

4 Cultural Recreation 
There are many famous record companies, publishing houses and news units along the street, and it is very convenient to buy records, books and artistic works.

Beside the road, lines of imitations of western famous paintings were being hung there, from Renoir to Monet, Seurat, Van Gogh, they can both cheer the hearts, be pleasing to eyes and achieve artistic enlightenments. But in the small but very exquisite bookstores, if you choose books with concentrated attention, no matter new or old, you will get seldom unexpected discoveries. Of course, the sculptural artistic corridor, paintings bar corridor and ceramics bar are much more popular, it is also a pleasure to initiate an idea to make an artistic glass vase and take it home while drinking strong coffee. 

5 Famous Bars Gather 
Various kinds of “bars” gather in Hengshan Road, which forms a Shanghai Style bar cluster. The book bar is warm and silent, you can just order a bottle of tea, and then you can read all books in the bar, if you meet any book that you like very much, you can also buy it; the coffee bar often has an alien name: Malaysian Coffee, France Famous Wine, there is everything that should be there.

7 World of Reminiscence 
People who are fond of passing through time and space can go to the Old Times to have a look at western-style furniture, tableware, telephone, old-fashioned record player of 1930s, and serve as an old Color in 1930s.

Shell-like white eave, variously shaped windows and beautiful dome seen from the opened window, all these make people be surprised at its beauty. But what attracts people the most is its history, once here was the initial place of EMI Record Company, and also it used to be the hotbed of China Record Company. The bakelite record of those days once started a consuming upsurge in Shanghai several years ago. “China Record Company Little Red House” is a shinning point in recalling world.

In the swimming pool near the tennis court, so many people gather together who speak Shanghai dialect, Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese and English, which can make the accidental interlopers being confused instantaneously at which country he stands.
