Just across the road from a most modern shopping center there is a maze of little streets with every meter a special shop or a specialized restaurant. Every shop has something special, which you cannot find elsewhere. i had to force myself out of there after spending all my cash and some of my friends!

Maze of small alleys filled with shops selling various items, not all regular turist things but quite many specialty shops. There are also many restaurants, bars & terraces. Nice place for walking around especially if shopping is something interesting. Can be crowded with the narrow lanes.

I've been to Shanghai about 6 times - my family spends the summer there - so I've seen all the historical sites. This is a touristic spot for sure - but I thought it was a great visit my recent weekend there. Its a market built into an old neighborhood where you can find stores and restaurants. The stores are... More

Try to look beyond the souvenir stalls, snack stalls, and shoulder-to-shoulder crowds and you can imagine what old Shanghai was like, with the narrow lanes and stone houses.

This is an area with plenty of small streets filled with small boutiques, bars, restaurants and souvenir shops. Almost all the shops carry the same things except for the clothing/shoe shops. Once you exit the Tian Zi Fang there are plenty of other boutiques around that are worth a visit too, they are mainly small clothing stores. I had fun... More

I heard the name for many times, but i was not yet be able to visit. Until with a business friends. Well, quite surprised to see so many "cultural elements", not only China or German, or Israel, many others. Do not try to be rushing. Just slow down, and enjoy the night. Beers, music. And also a lot of different... More

We came to this little market with a Chinese friend, not really knowing what to expect but ended up being pleasantly surprised. The winding alleys, souvenir shops, cute boutiques and (what appeared to be) nice cafes and restaurants were a nice change of pace from the tower skyscrapers and cold boulevards of other parts of the city. We really enjoyed... More

This is a different dimension from downtown Shanghai. If you wanna find the cute or weird stuff, wonder around narrow alleys, this is the place to come! Pretty popular among artists and young people.
