I had been to Tian Zi Fang a few times but not in the past few years.
I was glad to find the place retaining its charm.
Other than the bustling atmosphere of old lanes, this is also a good shopping place. The variety of...More
This is a fun little marketplace. You can buy souveniers. You can have your picture hand painted by a local artist or have them make a bobblehead of your head. You can eat a variety of fried things or sit down for a beer. You...More
Loved visiting the shops here. Small and cute and away from the commercial malls. We went into a few of the tea shops and ended up spending. Highly recommend visiting this place (1-1.5 hours should do it)
We visited the Tian Zi Fang on the last day of our tour. I wish we had more time to explore all of the alley ways. There is something for everyone here, food, drink, shops of every description. I loved the sights, the sounds and...More
I spent most of my time here in the small alleyways filled with shops and restaurants. It was fun browsing the variety of shops here and I purchased a small tin of tea leaves. However it was extremely crowded and I can't imagine what it'd...More

While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet,
tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
