“Charming little quarter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

Tian Zi Fang is a charming little quarter in Shanghai with lots of small stores, many of them selling arts and crafts. Much nicer than the tourist traps around Yu Yuan.

“A rabbit warren of streets full of interesting shops and galleries.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

There's a real bohemian feel to Tian Zi Fang with its shops and bars and restaurants. The alleys are narrow and winding so you never see to far. Plus the shops are interesting and it has a more genuine feel to it than XinTianDi.

“Great shopping, fun atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

This area of the city has lots of character...they have refurbished old style alley shops into a trendy shopping area fun for locals and tourists. There are lots of quirky boutiques and souvenir shops and several good restaurants. It is conveniently located near a subway stop.

Unlike the pearl market, most shops do not allow haggling. For some people, this is fine but for others it is a disappointment. If you want to haggle, I would suggest the pearl market.

If you're in Shanghai, make some time to visit Tian Zi Fang, you will not be disappointed!
