Xin Tian Di in Shanghai Tour Guide:
A highly interesting and vibrant attraction in Shanghai, Xin Tian Di leaves you with many pleasant memories of your holiday in China. This is the place to be in if you wish to experience the many facets of Shanghai and get a sense of its vibrant spirit.
Stretching from Huangpi South Road in the east to Madang Road in the west, the neighbourhood of Xin Tian Di features an interesting mix of the old and the new, past and present, ancient and contemporary.
Once a residential area with lanes of old Shikumen (traditional Shanghainese residences featuring a mix of western and Chinese architectural styles), the neighbourhood of Xin Tian Di has transformed into a commercial space boasting some of the finest shops and boutiques, dining establishments, bars and cafes.
However, it has retained its Shikumen character, with the Shikumen structure, exteriors, tiles and antique walls intact; inside, it is a different story with all contemporary interiors and modern amenities. Stroll through the longtangs; venture into boutiques and shops and indulge the avid shopper in you; revel in the global couture; and enjoy eclectic dining on a truly international level.
