Shanghai Xintiandi is an urban tourist attraction
imbued with the city's historical and cultural legacies. The 30,000-square-meter
trendy entertainment complex is nestled in the very center of the
city, close to the bustling Huaihai Road C., the Huangpi Road S. Station
of the Metro Line and the conjunction of the north-south and east-west
elevated roads. It showcases the perfect blending of Shanghai’s traditional
“Shikumen” houses and state-of-the-art buildings. It features a multitude
of restaurants and cafes, retail, entertainment, cultural, recreational,
commercial and residential facilities in restored – stone-gate buildings.
It’s where Shanghai’s rich history meets the modern posh lifestyle
Xintiandi is a new shopping district in Shanghai that is comprised of recently renovated structures that includes the structure that housed the first meeting of the Chinese Comminist Party. Before the development of Xintiandi, the area it encompasses had been a spread of aged lanes crowded with mid-19th century Shikumen buildings which were in pretty bad shape. Restored to their original splendor, the buildings and walkways allows visitors to Xintiandi to simply stroll around and take in the sights, eat at a number of world-class retsuarants, or shop in the brand-name glass-walled shopping mall at one end of the complex. Xin Tian Di is an entire block renewed recently where many bars, famous restaurants and fancy shops can be visited. Your choices are from coffehouses, fancy bars, brazilian barbecue restaurant to movie theatres and shopping malls.Nightlife is specially attractive

Before the development of Shanghai Xintiandi, the area it encompasses had been a spread of aged lanes crowded with mid-19th century Shikumen buildings which had witnessed the vicissitudes of time. The Shikumen style was a combination of influences from home and abroad, showcasing Shanghai's culture of that era. With the city's drive toward progress and modernity, Shikumen, as a form of residential design, began to fall out of favor, prompting some experts to predict that by the 21st century Shikumen style houing would altogether disappear.
