  • If you are any way creatively inclined, this place is a pretty much must see in Shanghai... it is however, slightly out of the way so you need to plan your route carefully when planning a trip there. ...  more »
  • Were in the art district in Beijing and hoped for something similar here. Alas, were disappointed. There is no diversity, no interesting exhibits.

  • It's always nice to come here and check what's new. Art galleries and free entry, few nice cafes and design shops. A quiet place. You can find sometimes street artists at work as well.
  • Nice little village of art studios and galleries in industrial buildings. I believe that a real art connaisseur could spend lots of time there, however, I would not recommend this place to any "simple tourists", unless you are looking for some unique, handmade souvenir. The shops are actually nice, but there were also so many places going under construction that there was not much left of the atmosphere because of all the trucks and construction worker going around. Oh, and go there when the weather is good! The little cafés look promising!
  • Be mesmerized by amazing artwork and spend time with Shanghai's top artists at M50.
  • Like this place so much !
  • Fantastic place if you like contemporary art. Don't miss the street art on the wall outside.
