Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I enjoyed doing some last-minute souvenir shopping in Tianzifang. It's a nice little area with all the usual Chinese souvenirs on offer (tea, silk, jade, pottery, etc). Worth popping by. Go early, it'll be quieter.

This place is a maze, if you have an afternoon to stroll about and pick up knick knacks and small bites this charming area is for you. Lots of different vendors and shops selling mostly the same things but it's still a fun and easy experience.

Recommended place for an afternoon. Nice small streets with small shops lining both sides. Little streets to turn into that you can explore. Little bars that you can hop in for a drink or cafes for tea and coffee.
Cool Knick knacks that can be picked up at affordable prices though it can get busy at times.
The small streets may not be the easiest to roll a pram so young families beware

The images don't do it justice. Very lovely little area with lots to see and do. It looks like something out of a movie. Very crowded at times.

Its like a shops in small alleys, very unique and beautiful. Sell lots of cute things, but if course the prices are expensive even if we bargain.

Beautiful place to take photos

Tian Zi Fang is the quintessential tourist heaven for souvenir-hunting shopaholic. Its intertwined narrow pathways are filled with numerous adorable shops, with each specializing in diverse variety of products. Though this attraction is not as vast in space as Yuyuan, the quality of souvenirs is not any inferior. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised to purchase magnets of unique design, distinctive from Yuyuan’s one.

I happened to chance upon a Taiwanese food store named Super Fries selling long fried potatoes fries with different toppings. As a French Fries lover, I quickly bought one packet to try, only to realise that this was the worst French Fries I had ever tasted in my whole life. I forced myself to finish the entire packet. It neither has the potato flavour nor did it taste crispy, but it was just extremely bland. Do note that there is limited food selling within this attraction site.

For vegetarians visiting Tian Zi Fang, there is a nearby vegetarian restaurant named Super Vegan restaurant selling authentic Chinese cuisine. This restaurant is located at a shopping mall next to Dapuqiao station, which is the nearest train station to Tian Zi Fang. If you are here for shopping, do visit its nearby Buddha-glass-sculpture museum called Liuli China Museum, for some awe-inspiring aesthetics immersion, to perfect your trip for the day.

We visited at night time to fill in a few hours and have some dinner. It was nice just top wander around the alley ways, not knowing what was around the next corner. We ate at Bohemia Cafe and Bar and were very disappointed with both service and the food. Was a little difficult getting a cab at the end of the night, but still a nice spot to visit

Tian Zi Fang is a cornucopia of tiny, pictoresque, creative stores and food shops. Fun for a lazy afternoon of sight-seeing and shopping. Easy access from the metro. One can find pieces from local artists, souvenirs, clothing, furniture, and an endless list of knick-knacks. Prices are usually reasonable, often negotiable.
The place tends to be crowded to stay close to your party, specially if it includes children. It is easy to lose them in the waves of people flowing down the narrow alleyways and walkways.
It is one of my teenagers' favorite place for a cheap outing or date with friends. One can be amused and surprised for free in many of its nooks and crannies. Worth at least a couple of hours.
