Anyone traveling to Shanghai, should at least spend one afternoon in the little streets of Tianzifang! Great to see all the different people!

Highly recommend going, really cute postcard shops where you can also buy stamps and theyll put them in the mail for you! Dont follow the exact location point on trip advisor though, we did and it was a couple blocks off. Take the subway and get off at damuqiao rd. Theres an exit that is right at the entrance basically.

Great place to just lose track of yourself and take an afternoon to wander. Some very interesting little shops selling more "authentic" things, beautiful photography shops, and lots of great cafes to sit and catch your breath. Go during the week for less people!

narrow alley-way full of shops and bars/restaurants, could be very crowded over weekends or special holidays. It is like "people moving people". Merchandises a bit pricey, but some items you cannot find them elsewhere. One could shop and enjoy the old buildings at the same time. Must try the freshly made potato chips and double-ends cone ice-cream.

This area is more quaint than Xin Tian Di. There are great little boutiques there, and it is a nice place to shop for funky accessories and affordable, unique gifts to take home. I found things there that I have not seen elsewhere in Shanghai. This is a bit hard to get to, although most taxi drivers will know where... More

TianziFang is a great place to visit to see a touristy view of Shanghai. If you go in with the right attitude, that you're looking for a fun shopping and food experience in a set of over-hauled lanes in Shanghai, then you'll be fine. I'd recommend going on a weekday, or evening. It gets very, very crowded on the weekend.

I always make it a point to visit this place whenever I visit Shanghai. There are so many quaint shops and a great place to people watch. I usually buy a cup of coffee and pastry enjoy the visitors walking along the narrow alley ways.

Tian Zi Fang is a very unique old oriental Chinese shopping area in the centre of the metropolitan Shanghai. It's like Beijing's Nanluoguxiang but has an older feel. Lots of places to shop and dine, or just to grab some snacks. Since it's a tourist area, expect quite expensive prices.
