Tian Zi Fang, Shanghai

4.1
#2 of 257 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.

  • Loved this market. Spent 2 hours wandering but could have spent longer. The quality of merchandise was excellent. If I return to Shanghai in the future, I will return here.
  • The place is very crowded during weekends. What I like is the specialty shops in the area. Very interesting and full of creative merchandise. A lot of food stalls and restaurants too. Worth spending an afternoon here.
  • Really awesome place! Loved the atmosphere of this market and enjoyed the food and drink! Great shopping too!
  • Nice little shops, if you like Ghibli stuff here you can find a Store with LOTS of it, good food, if you want a break from the huge super futuristic Shanghai city just go here.
  • Such a neat little district. All cobblestone, no cars. Tons of little shops and restaurants. Definitely worth a visit! Check out the I Love Shanghai Lounge, best dive in Shanghai.
