Tianzi Fang is a walking and shopping area filled with edgy marketing and design studios, gorgeous fashion and interior outlets and established artists of all varieties. There are also some great restaurants, cafes and bars to sustain this hungry creative bunch and the curious who walk around this local Shanghai hangout. The area was originally a residential and factory zone and is now home to Shanghai’s trendsetters. The architecture is breathtaking, the shops filled with novelties, the food is delicious and the people you’ll find out and about are as diverse as the shops within. It’s a great place to spend a few hours and enjoy the mix of old with new. Our Shanghai interns found it to be “a very interesting place to visit filled with character”. Most likely they’ll be back on their own to spend some more time in this eclectic part of town.
