Shanghai Tianzifang

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.
