Part of the French Concession area, Tian Zi Fang has transformed from a traditional residential area into a modern arts and crafts enclave. Supported and swarmed by young designers, trend setters, and expatriates, the labyrinthine district houses numerous boutique shops, workshops, studios, bars, and restaurants. The area blends Shikumen buildings with British- and Spanish-styled castles, traditional Chinese meals with international flavors, and the eastern culture with a western charm. A lot of boutiques and galleries offer a variety of handmade novelty souvenirs for sale, arrive early to purchase them, as such limited editions sell out quickly.

Tian Zi Fang Reviews
Nice enough but very touristy stalls unlike my previous visit 7 years back. Still worth a brief visit. more »
Rainy day at Tian Zi Fang. Nice view and surroundings.. small outlets that sells varieties of food and things..don't forget the tasty Nougats ! Sun Moon Mall is just across the road.. more »
It's one of my favorite places in Shanghai. Lots of novelty items, collectibles, art, there's a variety of bars & restaurants neatly tucked in the alleys of this complex. The vibe is amazing. A must visit
If you're visiting Shanghai for the first time, don't miss the opportunity to come here and walk around these narrow alleys, you'll find tons of souvenirs, coffee shops, artworks, street food, clothes, private cinema, restaurant, even a Cat Cafe. I'm a resident here and I never get tired of coming back, there's always something new going on. Weekends are particularly harsh to walk through the crowd, try to come during week days, if possible.
