Where to go, what to do on November 26 in Shanghai.
French Christmas Market @ The Pearl
Inject some French flair into your holidays this year, as The Pearl’s third edition of their French Christmas market takes on a chic Parisian theme with vendors selling all things français. Over 40 stores will be peddling handmade products such as jewelry and beauty products, while traditional Christmas fare such as mulled wine, foie gras, and waffles will keep you watered and fed. Children (and adults too) can meet Santa to find out if they’ve been naughty or nice.
