Love the laneway shops and maze. Favourite cafe is Commune, great place to sit outside and people watch. Other favourite is Cafe Dan - he loves his coffee! A very cute Japanese inn. They have a very small kitchen but sends out delicious Japanese food.

These narrow alleys are right near the downtown area of Shanghai across the street from a large modern shopping center. There are lots of shops with all kinds of items. The food we did not try but the variety was great from Thai to Indian to Western and of course Chinese, and Chicago and New York Pizza. It is not... More

Great atmosphere - bring your camera because you'll want to take lots of shots of the brick work and doors. It is a unique mix of old Shanghai living and new Shanghai shops. Also, love all the little bars for a quick bit or a long rest drinking many styles of beers. But it gets crowded during the weekends and... More

Definitely a must-see if you're visiting Shanghai. Not sure why we missed this in our past visits. It's a small community with lots of small shops and restaurants. There's the interesting "Modern Toilet" restaurant, shops that offer souvenirs, shops that sell handmade goods, a shop that sells Tibetan clothing, diverse restaurants (Turkish, English, Italian, Chinese, etc.), shops that offer unique...

Loved the casual vibe of this gem. Specialty shops, restaurants, cafes and stalls lined the shikumen lanes and corners. Some lanes are so narrow that they cause a human jam, but hey, that's part of the fun of being here. The place is sprawlingly huge, so you should take your time to explore and not be in a hurry. If... More

It's totally overrated. I would not recommend anybody to buy anything there, as they are all overpriced! I am very sure they are because I have seen some of the qipaos there selling at RMB 400-RMB 500 which I have seen before priced at RMB200. I assure you the quality and design is exactly the same. Visit the shops but... More

I'm doing an internship in Shanghai and I absolutely love Tian Zi Fang. I've been back 4 times in the span of 1 month. It seems like everytime I go back, I discover something new! It's conveniently located right across the Dapuqiao station Exit 1 on line 9 (just cross the street and enter through the first alleyway that you... More

Lots of food and drinking places in this old "HuTong" structure of Shanghai. There is also a corner that mainly features the art and crafts merchandises. Easily access by taxi and subway. No entrance fee required
