Xintiandi to Tianzifang is a 1.6 mile moderately trafficked point-to-point trail that offers scenic views and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and nature trips and is accessible year-round.
Walking tour through the heart of the former French Concession in Shanghai, China The route takes you through the French Concession via "restored" areas and places that have been left in their more natural state. Xintiandi is a well-known tourist destination and Tianzifang is increasingly becoming so. Still, both show traditional style housing and buildings. Sinan Road was for a long time a peaceful street lined with old villas. This is changing, but it still makes a pleasant walk. On the way, you will see what life was like for ordinary Shanghai residents in the early 20th century, along with richer Chinese and Europeans. There are many opportunities to eat along the route. Whilst there are some souvenirs available in Xintiandi, Tianzifang is a better bet.
