Yes, there are many strange things for foreigners here - birds, tortoises, plants, antiques (faked?) but the main reason you would want to come here is for the crickets. Cricket culture transcends generations of Chinese history and this is one unique place to experience this...More

This marker us a must when visiting Shanghai. Lots of birds, turtles, fish, flowers and of course crickets. The treatment of animals is definitely questionable but it is the part of the local culture. Definitely worth visiting!

This market would definitely be on my must-see list in this city. It's a glimpse into 'old Shanghai' and the walls of plants and crickets are both beautiful and really exciting. I'll forewarn that if you're squeamish about bugs or animals in small cages, give...More

We stopped by and had a great time walking through. The crickets, turtles, birds, fish, and any related supplies. We bought a little pagoda for a fish tank but just walking around and looking at everything was worth coming. Maybe 20-40 minutes to visit.

This place is Crazy!! It is crowded with people rudely pushing past you to get ahead. The air is filled with the sounds of thousands of trapped grasshoppers and many birds. We saw so many different animals for sale as pets, such as squirrels, chipmunks,...More

Unfortunately, I have no idea. I would guess it is from around 10am to about 6pm. We were there from the noon to 2pm.
