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.

    cool
    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 marquis .

    Super jam-packed
    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.

    I come here almost weekly for errands and this is a top 10 tourist spot in shanghai. Mainly the 200 year old shikumen stone buildings have cultural value, there are shops and restaurants to go to not found in many places elsewhere in shanghai - Aesop, Le labo, shake shack, moleskin etc. There’s also 5 star hotels like Andaz and Langham, and many expensive apartments

    Great Place For Eating
    Busy area which offers plenty of shopping and eating. Loved our time strolling around here, gorgeous buildings. We found a fantastic, if pricey yum cha restaurant to have lunch and then just wandered around a bit more.

If you are looking for interesting food other than Chinese food, this is a good place to start. Even if not for meals, taking a stroll and taking in the architecture is just as pleasant.

First time here was 20 years ago. It was cutting edge restoration (if that makes any sense) and very international. The brewery / Hof was packed and all the shops were bustling. I counted only 3 non-Asians walking through the entire area this time. There’s police barricades and presence everywhere. Security felt like NYC after 9/11. Nothing unique at all. All the same usual high end shops except for Ugg and a few other mid tier brands. There’s a few good restaurants there and it’s worth checking it out but I wouldn’t go out of my way unless you really need that picture in the alleyways. That’s about it.

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!

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
