Tianzifang is an example of rehabilitation for touristic purposes. Impossibly crowded when I visited. Don't stop to eat / drink / shop; it's a rip-off. Walking out of the gates you'll find far better food for a third of the price. Good if your time in Shanghai is very limited and you want to get a glimpse of old alleys.

If you are looking for some good pictures of old Shanghai. Get here early before the crowds! Full of cute little shops and usual tourist souveneers (find them cheaper somewhere else if you are looking for cheap scarves). There are some really nice craft shops in here. Good place to have a coffee or snack and wander for an hour... More

When I say time is everything, I mean the time you have to spare and the right time to go. Tianzifang can be good fun or a crowded nightmare. If you are going to visit, just try and ensure that it is not a holiday or weekend. The crush of people can be daunting. As for the money? It is... More

Tian Zi Fang is an labyrinth of alleyways with shops, eateries and bars. It's great fun to barter for a pair of shoes, a scarf, curio and celebrate with a drink or hookah. Tian Zi Fang has fun photography shops with colorful prints of all sizes and art on phone cases too. The restaurants on the second floors overlooking the... More

Every thing and everyone was over rated, it was a huge waste of my time. I was miserable most of the time I was there. It was a great experience but I wouldn't do it again.

The streets are narrow and the shops crammed into the tiniest of store fronts. Lots of tourist type places. Probably reflective of how Old Shanghai used to be and has now progressed to shopping centers and designer boutiques. Easy to get lost zigging and zagging through these alleys.

These busy little streets are great for wandering if you don't mind the hustle and bustle! Lots of little shops selling trinkets and stalls selling ice creams and sweet treats! It also has some good places for brunch- if you go to the right bars and cafes tianzifang is not just for tourists- expats often head to Kommune or Kabb

A must-see and must-walk around especially during the afternoons/evenings to enjoy part of olden Shanghai. While much of the architecture has been done up, you can still "feel" the rustic old living environment so bring your camera or smart phone cameras (should be sufficient unless you are a shutter-bug). Enjoy a lazy afternoon or a light evening meal at the... More
