Yangpu is in Shanghai. The heart of the district is near Wujiaochang (五角场), mainly a shopping center with a large cineplex, including an IMAX theatre.
Metro line 10 runs from the heart of Shanghai up north through Yangpu. This line has a stop directly beneath WuJiaoChang. Line 8 also runs from People's Square through Yangpu, terminating in the north side of the district. Interchange between Lines 10 and 8 at the Siping Road subway stop.
Many bus lines have stops in Wujiaochang.
Wanda Plaza (formerly Wujiaochang Shopping Center) is the favorite entertainment spot for university students and locals on the north side. A good selection of restaurants are can be found in the plaza, along with box stores and a cinema.
Due to the large number of students, Yangpu is a budget-friendly location for food. A small and suspicious-looking alleyway off Wudong Lu, near the Fudan north campus, is alive with friendly street food vendors nearly any time of day. They move to Fudan's north gate after 9:30PM.
