The initial idea was good. To transfer the crowds from Xintiandi by developing another " traditional Shanghainese alleys" spot. Souvenirs are on the overpriced side while there isn't a lot of creativity seen. There are so many restaurants / cafes but very few good ones, except for Dan's cafe and Origin.

with various bars & restaurants... Taikang Rd makes for 1 of the best bar districts in China.

With countless restaurants in Tianzifang (the actual districts name) you'll be bound to find anything from great Indian to awesome Mongolian cuisines all just around the corner..

Bars wise, Tianzifang has quite a lot to offer... I could make a list but i'll just type 2 of my favourites: 1) Bell Bar - consisting of a 1st & 2nd floor, Bell Bar has an AWESOME happy hour going from 5 til 8 on all cocktails. 2) Kommune - They have a weekly free wine tasting & a great breakfast.. as well as original cocktails.

... There is also this place called "Modern Toilet" ... but I'll let you guys go check that 1 out for yourselves if you ever manage to come to Shanghai..

It's not to do with the shops - just the life that is going on around you. You can walk up and down here and see couples young and old out on their dates - or groups of friends in lively debate. If you head off the street - all sorts of wonders can be found

A very pleasany break from the typical malls we find in all citiies. This little alley is full of great art, cute trinkets and unique cosy restaurants. We enjoyed half the day here and plan to come back. Be ready to bargain big. Good deals are awaiting in Taikang Lu. The Propaganda store was really cool.

We have been there twice in 2 days ! So many shops to browse and enjoy.
Need bargaining skill , all prices offered can be reduced substantially . We bought
nice design scarfs of 600 yuan for 150 yuan , no chinese necessary , calculator is imperative.
We learn some other places want to follwow Taikang Lu but difficult to get government
permission. Weekend would be so crowded but should be more fun.
