Tianzifang Art Street - Fashion in Linong (shanghai hutong)

  • Tianzifang is at the lanes of Taikang Road. It developed from a local residence area - Linong (which means hutong ) to a new art zone. The Taikang Road is an area where artist gathers in downtown Shanghai. Then even without people noticing, the lanes along Taikan Road developed into a new attraction.
  • Address: No 210, Taikang Road, DaPu Bridge, Luwan District.
  • Most of the rooms are galleries and art shops there. If you have a very different feel from either the Xintiandi (it is too modern) or the M50 in Moganshan Road (it is too artistic).
