Top ways to experience Xintiandi
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Xintiandi
The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park provides the area with green space and is also home to Shanghai Fashion Week twice a year. It’s not all glitter and glamour, though, as the rise of Danshui Road has given the Xintiandi area a shot of toned-down character. Small bars and cafes, mostly owned by locals, have people hanging out in a formerly quiet, unassuming part of the neighborhood.

It was only 10 degrees at the end of January but the area was busy and there were lots of people eating outside, at different restaurants. There were line-ups, outside, for several places. The New York Bagelous Museum had a a line-up and just around the corner Starbucks had some room so we took bagels to Starbucks. For dinner, El Teatro, a short stroll away, was great. The area is beautiful, colourful, with lots of lights, shops, and restaurants. -- Can hardly wait to go back and see some more!

Visited this place on Christmas Eve. It was really jam-packed but good atmosphere though. This is a popular place for younger generation, with western food /restaurant options. I enjoyed the Christmas atmosphere in this area, with the Christmas decorations in the area, and stalls along the MaDang Road.

Nice area to visit. Located in the center of Shanghai City and south of Middle Huaihai Road, Xintiandi is a fashionable pedestrian street. There are manyrestaurant and shops in the street. And it not far from my hotel Marriot

Nice area to visit. They are still constructing after 15 years. Many of the hip restaurants have moved out, but you have others like Lady M or Din tai fung moving in. Lots of shops between luxury to streetwear

Xintiandi is a great combination of Shanghai and the world - here you can find food from various corners of the world, explore restored and newly built old and new Shanghai, people watch and so on and so forth...

A nice area to walk about, with some older European architecture in the area of the French Concession. Lots of neat looking cafes and restaurants and a bunch of modern fancy malls.

For historical attractions, I wanted to visit the museum of the Korean provisional government. Unfortunately, it was closed.

We visited Xintiandi with a tour group in August 2019. Xintiandi is a picturesque little area with modern shops and restaurants where you can enjoy outside alfresco dining and have a drink. Some of the shops are high-end and clearly marketed to tourists, but it was nice to sit at the Boxing Cat Brewery and enjoy the atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.
