Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web
Part of the French Concession area, Tian Zi Fang has transformed from a traditional residential area into a modern arts and crafts enclave. Supported and swarmed by young designers, trend setters, and expatriates, the labyrinthine district houses numerous boutique shops, workshops, studios, bars, and restaurants. The area blends Shikumen buildings with British- and Spanish-styled castles, traditional Chinese meals with international flavors, and the eastern culture with a western charm. A lot of boutiques and galleries offer a variety of handmade novelty souvenirs for sale, arrive early to purchase them, as such limited editions sell out quickly.

  • Its actually like a highend night market kinda place which is open during day and night. Placed inside small streets in which if it gets crowdy it might tip you off. You'll see lots of concept food and things that you might wanna buy but really dont need. Be aware though that prices here are a lot more expensive. So don't go souvenir shopping here unless you have already check the price elsewhere. Some shops i notice Shirts Leathergoods Chinese art stuff Magnets Electronic shop Visited September 2015
  • Gorgeous narrow streets with arts and crafts shops. The image of old China, but revamped for the modern day. Well worth a few hours strolling around.
  • Old world feel with narrow streets and alleys zigzaging about. Lots of great shops. Touristy but nice.
  • Very great place to go at evening and day. Lot's of restaurant, shops and bars. Most places very touristics, BUT some very cosy spots with nice roof-top terraces. Just to stroll around the place is great joy. There is also a shop which sells original vintage glasses! so cool.
  • Definitely a very special place to go for some unique arts and crafts!
