Tianzifang at Taikang Road

Let me add some photos to the Tianzifang I mentioned the other day.

Tianzifang is at the lanes of Taikang Road. It developed from local residence area, to a new art zone. The Taikan Road is an area where artist gathers in the downtown Shanghai. Then without people even noticed, the lanes along the Taikan Road developed to a new attraction.

As you can see from the picture above, the narrow lanes were laid out, and people enjoy their dinner. Most of the rooms are galleries, and art shops there. It is a very different feel from either the Xintiandi (it is too modern), or the Moganshan Road (too artistic).

Here is the map of the area.

P.S. The Expo Site

BTW, here is the expo site – from nothing to an area of many buildings.

In case you forget what Nanpu Bridge looks like, here is a recent photo:

  1. yeah. I heard it is better than Xintiandi. Over here you can find more authentic Shanghai lifestyle.

  2. Hello Jian Shuo and everybody!

    I just wanted to say that I just discovered your blog and it is a pleasure to read you. Thanks for it!

    Ive been in Shanghai for 2 months now, and will spend here 2 more months. So many things I didn’t do and see yet!
