Tian Zi Fang, Shanghai

4.1
#3 of 210 in Shopping in Shanghai
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.

  • Really enjoyed this place, although they catered to tourists it was a very enjoyable visit for all the family (even the non-shoppers). Particularly good leather items.  more »
  • Amazing place! Great place to visit, amazing guide in Elva of Odyssey Tours. Thank you for an amazing memory! Highly recommend visiting. Be careful of your belongings.  more »
  • Nice to walk on through but I would not go there as "attraction" in itself. We booked a bicycle tour and came here. After half hour you have seen. Don't get caught for the special teas or coffees. This is pure deceit!! They say special ingredients to use and questions as 30 euros for a jug. Don't do it!!

  • Charming hipster neighborhood in the French concession. Whilst very commercialised with similar gift shops, the architecture never fails to impress. There are many western dining options and bars to soak in the atmosphere.
  • Really cool place. lots of boutique shops and restaurants/ cafes. Also has some bars and dessert stalls. Has a really old time Shanghai feel. It has been revamped, but not too much as to preserve the historic feel.
  • Infinitely better than XinTianDi. Go here for a bit more authentic Shanghai alley experience, and even with its own broad selection of international eateries and shopping. Loved getting lost in the maze of alleyways.
  • A must. Spent there almost 3 hours, just walked around those small streets filled with designer shops, cafes and bars. Great atmosphere.
  • Great place. Lots to look around. Narrow lanes. Lots of little street cafes/restaurants.

Where to stay in Shanghai

As one of China's top commercial cities and tourist destinations, Shanghai offers accommodations that range from backpacker-friendly haunts to five-star hotels in futuristic skyscrapers. Few world cities can rival Shanghai in terms of room variety, services, and prices, and all types of travelers can easily find suitable options based on their preference and budget limitations. Puxi and Pudong remain probably the best options for most foreign visitors, as these areas offer both modern hotels packed with amenities and older establishments loaded with traditional charm.
