This trendy area is always in vogue, full of energy, could be eclectic in parts of the area. Xin Tian Di is a good example of the area, remodeled Shi-ku-mon houses and well-preserved neighborhood.

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
