Every time I go to Tian Zi Fang I am amazed at the hustle and bustle and the many lanes of shops, places to eat and drink. There are always lots of people and noise but this is not to be missed if you are only visiting for a short time. One can imagine what Old Shanghai was once like... More

I lived a few hundred meters from Tian Zi Fang for 5 months. I found myself there almost everyday. The mix of Chinese tourists taking 'selfies' and Western tourists all enjoying the artistic and commercial offerings. The neighborhood is constantly in flux with shops closing and new shops opening all the time. If you can't find a great meal here,... More

It is considered to be a view of colonial Shanghai, it could be but ended to a crowdy tourist trap with expensive souvenirs,low quality food and overpriced drinks. Visiting will not give you an image of how Shanghai used to be, still if you decide to do so try to avoid weekends.

This area is really interesting and feels like you are walking through the small streets of a European town. There is a good selection of small shops selling unique gifts. It does get a bit crowded but that almost adds to the atmosphere.

I used to attend many meetings in an office not too far from this place. It was a delight to come to this neighborhood for lunch and some shopping. It does get a bit crowded at times, but I really like variety of restaurants, especially the burger joint and the salad bars. This area feels more like an authentic old... More

You have a lot of road side shops which are colorful and if you visit during winter, the bare branches of the trees give a unique effect. You need to bargain here! But the options for food are numerous. You have a candy shop and its really fantastic to see them do the candies! I was offered to taste them-... More

it is just a collection of shops in an old neighborhood, I don't find much of interesting things at all in this place. the good part is that it is free, you don't have to pay an entrance fee as many of the old towns in China (many charge 100 RMB! what a rip off). it is OK to spend... More

Quaint original Shanghai housing in narrow alley lanes with a large variety of dining, drinking & shops. I must prefer TIan Zi Fang to the newness and fake feeling of Xintiandi. One of our favorite areas in Shanghai to go and spend a few hours, including dining, snacking or grabbing a glass of wine. A must do for foreigners during... More
