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

We have been to quite a few of these pedestrian streets in China now so they are all worth a visit, especially at dinner time. This one seemed the cleanest and safest with some unique souvenirs and handicrafts but it was more expensive than others (it is in the French Concession after all). I got a pretty awesome dessert at... More

Loved this area in Shanghai but was disappointed that we only found it on our last evening. We had a fantastic time wandering these alleyways and looking in all the small shops! Once we had finished shopping we found some great places to eat and then to have a few drinks afterwards! If you are looking for a cool area... More

Tianzifang has grown over the years. In fact, every time I go back there seems to be something new. It's a great place to explore - overseas visitors will love the unique feel of wondering through old traditional long tang (alleys) and locals (especially with kids AFTER the tourists groups have gone) will love just exploring and checking out the...

So it's crowded. It's Shanghai. Shikumen and lots of people. Most are Chinese visiting Shanghai. I like the bar Bohemia across from Asia Corner. Nice selection of Belgian beers and okay bar food. Sit outside under the palm tree. Watch the people. Servers are friendly and helpful. If you stay late you can "Ye Shao" on the corner of Rui... More

This maze of shops and restaurants was so nice!!! We loved the little shops with many interesting products, you´ll surely find presents for everyone in your list here. We thought this was soooo much better than Old Street! The items here have better quality and you can find from souvenirs to some nice items. So many bars and restaurants to... More

There are three times worth visiting Tianzifang, early morning, midday and after dark. They are: Early morning is a great time to visit if you really want to take pictures and see what shops are located here. If you arrive between 8:00 - 8:30 am, there will be very few people, very few shops open. Midday is a great time... More
