Tian Zi Fang, Shanghai
(4.1/5 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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Tian Zi Fang by using our Shanghai trip generator.

  • Definitely would be helpful to visit the place with a map of sorts as all the alleys can make one list easily, and identifying places by shops can be more confusing as they have 4-5 of the same brand ...  more »
  • Manu found in those where blur lugger is go get going. Take a taxi from the South is close to some normal walking district. South Korea hit by Insadong?? Lots of modern Shanghai, every alley is ever so practical art of People's Republic of China-watching day. If you look at every house all day two seemed to run out.

  • There are a lot of specialty and local shops here. You'll be amazed about some of their creations. Lane 210 has the most equisite finds. It can be crowded due to its steep walkways but nevertheless, it's worth visiting.
  • 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
  • There are always too many people any time you visit here. Too crowded to stop to browse the shops. But it's OK 'cause the quality of the stuffs sold in the shops are far lower than their prices.
  • It is especially beautiful at night when you can stroll around the streets and enjoy the small shops and little bars...
  • If you're looking for D.I.Y and creative stuffs. This will be the place you like it.
