Shanghai Tianzifang (2014 May)
Shanghai Tianzifang (田子坊) is a tourist shopping & cafe area in the Old French Quarter. Unlike Xintiandi, which is more modern, Tianzifang has a more vintage feel. The buildings there preserved the original old-style architecture, with narrow alleys and streets surrounding them.
I love the uniqueness of cafes and pubs here. Tables and chairs are placed outside the shops along the alley. There are also benches for visitors to rest in Tianzifang.
We stopped by at Xintiandi (新天地), the former old city area of Shanghai’s French Quarter.
