We thoroughly enjoyed our time wandering through this area, spent several hours and could have stayed longer. Despite a persistent drizzle, the narrow passageways were packed with visitors. Lots to see, interesting shops and plenty of unique and quirky items not seen in other markets.

Narrow streets of shops, cafés and galleries. You can find many interesting theme cafés here and you'll probably be able to find some nice souviners too. There are a few shop selling postcards with mailing services which I found handy cos I didn't have to go hunting for a post office. You could even chose to post your cards a... More

The good: old living quarters transformed into a labyrinth of cosy alleys with shops, art/photo galleries, bars and trendy restaurants; The bad: over the years this place has become very popular with tourists and you can clearly notice it's descend into commercialism, less galleries and more tourist oriented shops: I've spotted 5 exactly the same stores selling the same sunglasses...

A friend highly recommended this place, and glad I managed to visit this place before leaving. Lots of things to see, from food, to drinks, to souvenirs, arts and crafts, or candy stores. The things you can find at this place is very diverse but can be over-crowded at times. There are many small lanes you can explore, and it... More

Tian Zi Fang is definitely an interesting stop if you're visiting Shanghai or even if you live here. However, it gets really busy and full of tourists and their cameras during the weekend. If you can make it during the week you're much better off and will have a chance to explore the lanes, cafes, and shops. This becomes a... More

Prepare to be jostled. Dozens of shops and places to eat all offering from low end to medium high end souvenirs and art. Of course a lot of touristy kitsch. One shop offers you the opportunity to write, imprint and mail postcards - take advantage of this as mail boxes are hard to find. The Chicago Style Pizza is actually... More

We visited twice in a ten day visit to Shanghai. It is a nice enclave of the artsy and the original in the heart of commercialized Shanghai. We liked it more than Yuyuan garden and Xintiandi. There is good quality shopping and the food is varied and very good. Bargaining is not as much as in other street markets. But... More

A big replica greets you as you enter this area. It doesn't get much better. Nothing distinctive was for sale. You can buy the identical posters and postcards in five or six store, one down every street.

I got here by taxi, taxi isn't very expensive in Shanghai so that's my main transportation during my visit. This Tian Zi Fang is basically a very traditional residential village. But it has been commercialized, shops and cafes opened on the first floor of each building. It's quite touristy though. We went to a bar with three stories. It was... More
