Went in Feb. Located at Old French Concession. It was raining and walking around the place has a romantic feel. Many shops and eating place. Did not get to finish as friend was unwell. Definitely going back.

Visited first time in Nov 2012, it reminded me of the hutongs in Beijing. The fragrance shop was an amazing place to be to breathe fresh airs and aroma. The restaurants of souvenir shops are here as well. It can be quite crowded here in the summer time.

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.
